BHASVIC vs Barking Abbey

The top of the East Conference table met the bottom of the table as Barking Abbey got a 104-50 win over BHASVIC on Wednesday.

Looking for another strong start at home, BHASVIC prepared for what the defending champions had to throw at them. They came out strong, however trailed 28-10 at the end of the first quarter.

As the second quarter got going, BHASVIC had strong spurts on both ends of the floor which saw them score 18 points in the period.

Much was the same in the third, where BHASVIC scored 19 points again but trailed 73-47. Barking Abbey’s aggressiveness and intensity on the defensive side of the floor were too much to handle as they dominated in the last quarter, ending the game 104-50 in favour of Barking Abbey.

After the game BHASVIC Head Coach James Quinto said:

“It was a tough first game to play after the Christmas break but we prepared as best we can for this game. I thought we played a much better game on both ends compared to our first meeting early in the season.”

He also added:

“I was a little disappointed in the last quarter as I feel like once again the score doesn’t define the performance we gave, however I truly believe this is another step in the right direction for us and we can only build on this as we have some important games coming up that we can surely try and win.

“I just want to also say, credit to Coach Lloyd and Barking Abbey for having the best program in the country and it’s showing again this season why they are the team to beat in both conferences.”

BHASVIC were led by Callum Collins with 18 points and Naz McLoughlin came off the bench with 16 points. Barking Abbey were led by Thomas Sowoolu who had 22 points while Arnas Petrauskas added 18 points along with Ade Adebayo with 17.
