NOTTINGHAM ACADEMY SLAM DUNK CITY TITLE


Nottingham Academy dominated the Year 10/11 Boys Basketball Finals at the Wildcats Arena to take the City title with an outstanding display of free flowing basketball.

Big Wood and Ellis Guilford challenged the eventual winners on finals night with the 2 challengers battling it out in game 1. Ellis Guilford took an early lead in the game, but as half time approached Big Wood edged ahead and then convincingly held on in the second half to take the game 29 - 19.

In game 2 Nottingham Academy showed their colours to beat Ellis Guilford with a 31 - 24 victory, with credit to the team from Basford, playing back to back games ran the champions close.

In the final Nottingham Academy utilised their full bench of players with good squad rotation, and whilst Big Wood kept plugging away and kept the score fairly even throughout Nottingham Academy went on to win 34 - 26 and now go through to the County Finals in February.
