This year, the year 7/8 basketball group have been entered in the Jr. NBA league which is governed by Basketball England. In our West Midlands group, we have been pooled with Moseley Park, Heath Park, Wednesfield and another team which we are awaiting to join the group. Each team in the west midlands group is given a number, this is then drawn out and allocated to an NBA team which they represent over the course of the league. We were number 24 and have been allocated The San Antonio Spurs! The photo below is the group modelling their brand new kit donated by Basketball England.
We will play each team twice in the group and depending on where we finish, we can progress through the group going to different areas of the midlands and maybe further!
Tonight, we hosted Heath Park – the group didn’t disappoint coming away with a 26-10 victory. With Marley G our captain being away, Harguleen took the captaincy and had a fantastic game! He came away with 20 points, with the other baskets coming from Dave, Mebest and Jeldi. Our defence was excellent, sticking to a man-to-man strategy and imposing a full court press making it difficult for the opposition to get out of their own half!
The group were fantastic! They represented us and San Antonio Spurs well!!!
