BHASVIC vs Itchen College

First game of the New Year featured a match up in the South as between BHASVIC and Itchen College. The home team are still searching for their first win of the season however; the visitors took the game 50-95.

BHASVIC Coach James Quinto was hoping for a better outing from his team compared to the last time both teams met, and was pleased with the effort his team gave for Fourty minutes. Quinto said, “I thought the Christmas break was going to hurt us a little bit but I was pleased with the way we started the game. We started well and had a lot of urgency coming into the New Year; however the battle was always going to be keeping the same level of good basketball on both ends throughout the game. Credit to Itchen as always for taking advantage of their size and bench depth.”

He also added, “I’m happy with the way we are progressing and how we are able to execute in majority of the game but the challenge now is to keep preparing ourselves for the upcoming games this latter half of the season to try and grab that well deserved win.”

It was an inspired opening quarter for the home team, which only saw them down by 3 points at the end. The visitors came out aggressive at the start of the second, which ignited an 18-3 run. However, BHASVIC made their own 6-0 run to end the quarter, which saw them trail the game 36-21.

BHASVIC were hoping for another inspired run in the third as they did against JMA the game before however, it wasn’t to be as the visitors went on a huge run the end the quarter 36-66. The home side put on a resilient effort to cut the lead down but three players fouled out early on as the visitors pulled away with the quarter 25-11.
