Mandurah’s Trevor Setty played a key role in securing a win for the South in the State Basketball League all-star match on Monday.

Setty was arguably the strongest candidate for the game’s MVP award, despite playing the lowest amount of minutes of any South player on the court.

The dynamite forward finished with 15 points and 12 rebounds, making him the number one rebounder on the court and one of just two players to record a double-double.

He knocked down six of his 10 shot attempts and knocked down three three-point bombs shooting at 50 per cent from beyond the arch.

An enormous five of his 12 rebounds came on the offensive glass, giving his side second chance opportunities, and he recorded a steal, an assist and a block.

All of this was achieved in only 10 minutes and 56 seconds on the court.

The South went on to win the game 116-104, with Najee Lane being awarded MVP honours after a 14 point, five rebound and four steal performance.

Mandurah Magic coach Jason Kyle jested that Setty needed to bring the same enthusiasm to regular season games.

“It’d be nice if Trevor could do that for us every game,” he joked.

“But that’s probably just what he needed as a player – a game that he can play in with no pressure and the ability to just have a really good hit out.

“In all seriousness Trevor has been great for us this season.”

In his first season with the Magic, Setty has dominated opponents and has often been a spark for Mandurah both offensively and defensively.

He is averaging 21.9 points and 9.6 rebounds per game.

His most impressive outing came against the Stirling Senators on April 2, where he piled up a huge 41 points and 18 rebounds.
