On Saturday 20th May 2017 our under 15s and under 17s made the trip to Nechells Wellbeing Centre for the 2017 YBL Finals.
Up first the under 15s took on a strong Redditch Raptors team. Despite giving their best efforts the under 15s fell short of victory in their first ever finals appearance losing the contest 48-59.
Scorers: Oscar 14, Daniel C 13, Cornell 10, Daniel J 5, Reon 4, George 2.
Up next the under 17s looked to defend their YBL title against Redditch Royals. A solid team effort was enough for our under 17s to finish their undefeated season with their second straight YBL title.
Scorers: Diogo 20, Raheem 15, Alex 13, Devante 11, Charlie 4, Shaun 2.
As well as the success of our junior teams, Luke Hatfield from our mens team won the West Midlands Basketball League 3-point shoot out, while Ezekiel ‘Ziggy’ Cameron was awarded the ‘YBL Chairperson Young Adult Special Recognition Award’ for his outstanding contributions to the club and basketball.
We now look ahead to our awards evening and prepare for the 2017/2018 season!
