The Byron Bay Beez basketballers were beaten by the Lismore Storm 87–78 in an exciting and entertaining Sunshine Conference grandfinal two weeks ago at the Cavanbah Centre.

The Storm won the tip off and got away to an early lead to finish the first quarter up by five points. 

The second quarter saw the Beez put pressure on the Storm as they hit the lead for the first time in the game, but the Storm found an extra spark and came back to hang on to their five point lead at half-time.  

The Storm came out strong after half-time and shot their way to victory and won the game by nine points, 87–78. 

Beez players Riley Gollan and Michael Rossignola were chosen in the Allstars Five team. 

The Beez were up against Lismore Storm in the grandfinal for the second year running.
