Raiders Academy boss Jay Marriott said: "There were some real highlights.
"Big-man David Mockaitis had a two-handed dunk; guard Sam Hockaday stole the ball and made Mike Ojo look stuck to the ground, when he took off for an emphatic dunk.
"It was a special moment and even had the opposite bench on their feet."
Marriott added: "After two strong performances now we will have a bullseye on our back and get the best of every team we play.
"We're starting to really hit form in all competitions, but we must continue to be hungry to improve even more.
"Every player understands the importance of hard work and focus. Tomorrow is a new day."
