Myerscough College vs BMET James Watt College

Myerscough knocked down sixteen 3-pointers in an incredible offensive display to dispatch James Watt College 99-63 in the EABL on Wednesday afternoon.

Callan Low, who hit five of his six 3-pointers in the fourth quarter, scored a game-high 27 points. Konrad Kantorski finish with 18 and Mate Okros added 16 for Myerscough (7-1), who have now won four-straight games.

“They’re a big team and I tend to play well against bigger and stronger players,” said Myerscough forward Low. “I’ve had a really versatile game recently — playing inside and outside — and it’s made me more challenging to defend.”

Myerscough made a fast start, but an 8-0 run from James Watt clawed back its early deficit and gave them a 17-16 lead. Low, however, restored the host’s advantage on the next possession and they never trailed again.

Kantorski would spark a 17-0 run three minutes into the second quarter with the first of five consecutive 3-pointers to open the gap up to 39-23 and Myerscough never looked back.

Myerscough had hit just one 3-pointer to that point, but would go on to hit six in the second quarter alone, as James Watt was held scoreless until the 3:45 mark.

“February is a difficult month — you have to have some resilience about your team with the games coming quickly,” said Myerscough coach Neal Hopkins. “The guys again demonstrated that they have that winner’s mentality, so we have to keep that form rolling. It was businessman-like and at the end of the day we came away with a win which was thoroughly deserved.”

Daniel Penkov, who scored 35 points against SGS College two weeks ago, was held to just 14 points. Malanga Sonko added 12 for James Watt (3-6) in the loss.

Myerscough hosts Allerton next Thursday at the High Performance Centre whilst James Watt faces the same opponent on Feb. 20.
