USP College 84 v 88 BHASVIC

USP Storm couldn’t hold off BHASVIC in a close contest, finishing 88 – 84 to the visitors.

The game started closely with both teams going back and forth in the early going. The 1st quarter saw USP edge the visitors by 1 behind the efforts of Kobbi Banks, who opened with seven points.

The second quarter saw BHASVIC begin to get in a rhythm as Josh Last started to find gaps in the USP defence. However, the hosts kept pressing to ensure they only trailed by two at the break.

Following the restart, USP regrouped and began to pile on the pressure. Demi Adeyeye led the USP offence with a quarter high 9 points, pushing the home team ahead by one going into the final stanza.

BHASVIC came out firing led by the impressive Lewis Jee. Continuous pressure by the visitors led to careless turnovers by USP down the stretch, leaving the visitors to stay composed and see out a narrow win.

USP Assistant Coach Ross Norfolk said: “It was a tightly fought contest. Down the stretch we didn’t exploit the foul trouble BHASVIC were in and we settled for too many 3’s. BHASVIC stayed calm under the pressure and I think we lost focus going into the final few minutes”.

USP were lead by Demi Adeyeye with 26 points, whilst Lewis Jee poured in 33 points for the visitors.

USP must now take their 0-2 record on the road against Barking next week, whilst BHASVIC enjoy a week off before hosting BA on the 9 October.
