Boys U14 Basketball
Basketball – The U14 boys’ basketball team tasted victory in Westminster. Undefeated going into the final against Paddington Academy, the squad were in a buoyant mood. The game itself was a very tactical affair. Both teams were nervous and turned over the ball a lot in the first half. Paddington’s centre was efficient at scoring in the paint and kept the game within single digits until half time.
The third quarter saw Pimlico Academy up the tempo, the energy on defence and the ability to rebound the ball better and run a fluid fast break enabled us to score quick points and put Paddington on the back foot. With the lead quickly up to 20 we were able to rotate our bench and manage the game, eventually winning the championship game by 24 points.
Captain, Turrinn Reid was outstanding, scoring 25 points and leading the team to the title.
