Pictures: BRAD FLEET By PETER TIFFEN Bobby Guyton ... 22 points HOT-HANDED guard Jarrod Sheppard has propelled Uni Rebels to victory against topof-the-table Tracy Village Jets. Sheppard hit 33 points as Rebels won the DBA mens league clash 72-46 at Darwin Basketball Stadium. Rebels led 37-23 at half-time and Sheppard stepped on the gas after the recess, hitting 20 points. His haul included six threepointers in what some rate as the young stars best game in Darwin. Jarrod was on fire hitting those three-pointers, stand-in coach Malix Laurel said. The absence of TV Jets ace Travis Ellis allowed Rebels US import Mike Konanec to control the boards. He finished with 16 rebounds. Big Mike dominated the boards and once we got the ball we just kept running, Laurel said. Captain Marcus Chng controlled the floor. He finished with 18 points, eight assists and four steals. It was only the second loss the Jets have suffered this season and snapped their seven-match winning streak. Meanwhile, DBA All-Stars player Matt Fagg had his best game for Ansett this season. Fagg, hampered by injury since crossing from the Jets, scored 25 points in the Blues 84-68 victory against Razzle. Eagles US import Bobby Guyton finished with 22 points as the Birds beat Warriors 75-59. In the womens league, defending Challenge Season premiers Eagles ended TV Jets winning streak. The Eagles scored a 53-39 victory to inflict Jets first loss in six games. Michelle Friel (17 points) and Megan Reeve (11) topped Eagles scoresheet. Jets Tara Carroll had a match-high 18 points. In other games, Ansetts Samantha Drescher cashed in against bottom side Warriors, scoring a career-best 57 points in a 116-31 win. Top side Lightning decked Uni Rebels 71-39, with Claire OBryan returning from injury to hit 30 points. Hilzinger quits MOVING ON: Gold Coast-bound Allan Hilzinger P ic tu re : S T U A R T W A L M S L E Y DARWIN Basketball Association executive officer Allan Hilzinger has resigned to take up a position as sports business manager of the Gold Coast Basketball Association. It is the second biggest basketball association in Queensland and my position will be exactly the same as a CEO, Hilzinger said. I will be running it entirely. The 33-year-old has a young family with two children aged two and five months. He said the opportunity to further his career and be close to his extended family were the reasons behind his move. Hilzinger was recruited from Japan 15 months ago after his predecessor was sacked by the DBA board. Since taking up the position he has helped the DBA forge links in China and Indonesia. He has impressed with his enthusiasm, managerial skills, vision and conduct during his time in the role. When I took over I think everyone knows there were a lot of issues around but I think things are really moving forward, he said. The DBA has a great crew of people right now. PETER TIFFEN
