Week 6: Game Reports

University of Worcester 47 – 85 Coventry Men’s 1

At a raucous University of Worcester Arena, our men’s 2nd team came out ‘hot’, playing some spell binding basketball in a 1st quarter that was fantastic to watch. UW were spearheaded by Bedgood & Garcia scoring from the perimeter, then Dunphy ignited the crowd with scores in transition. UW led 30-17. However in the 2nd quarter, injuries hampered the UW team, ruling out Garcia, Bastos and Langfield.

The team continued to fight hard, playing with a passion & energy, however the strength and size of the league leaders, Coventry University, proved a insurmountable challenge.

The final score at times doesn’t reflect the intensity of the game through the first 30 mins, said Coach Simon Fisher.

MVP: Keon Dunphy, 12pts & 11 rebs

In the second round of games in the Midlands Tier 1 of the Wheechair Basketball conference, our team secured two emphatic victories over Loughborough and Nottingham University. The win’s mean that our team have guaranteed themselves top spot in the conference before the 3rd round of games in the new year.

University of Worcester 97 – 42 Loughborough

University of Worcester 53 – 17 Nottingham University
