The All Stars now advance to a 2-4 win/loss record, moving off the bottom of State Basketball League standings.

Claudia Howard (14), Sam Chilcott (13) and Aishan Anis (12) provided solid support.

Taylor Mole starred for Basketball Tasmania’s High Performance side, nailing 32 of 60 points in a lone hand.
