Sydney Uni Basketball Club has had a busy summer of training and pickup, and with students returning to campus last week, momentum for the club has continued to build. Already three rounds underway, the club have two mens teams competing in the NSW Waratah competition in State League and Youth League divisions.
Both teams have injected some exciting new talent into their sides which should see them perform well in their second year in the league. Over the weekend the Youth League Men had a close win at home over Moss Vale, 65 – 62. Nick Peters a former resident of St. Johns College had a stand out performance for Sydney Uni scoring 33 points. He was well supported by Gerome Kang who collected 13 points. Kang was pivotal in the dying minutes of game shooting two big three pointers to seal the game.
The team will play the Blacktown Storm on Saturday the 14th of March at Kevin Betts Stadium, Blacktown at 5:00pm. With a bye last round the mens State League side will be back in competition this week with a game at home against Tamworth at 4pm on Saturday.
The Basketball club play pickup every Tuesday at the Sydney Uni Sports & Aquatic Centre from 4-6pm. If you are interested in becoming involved, please visit: http://www.sydneyunibasketball.org.au/ for more information.
