Basketball April 2017

Last month, Mr Lane and Miss Price took JHNCC’s Basketball team to watch Worcester Wolves play Newcastle Eagles at Worcester Arena. The 10 pupils who attended witnessed an exhilarating match and fully enjoyed the experience of watching a professional basketball team compete in The British Basketball League.

Worcester Wolves secured a 126-97 win. Coach Paul James hailed the victory as historic, saying: “In the history of Worcester Wolves basketball that must be the most prolific performance we’ve had, and against a Newcastle team who have been at the top year after year, in front of another fantastic crowd – it’s sheer fun.”

Mr Lane & Miss Price also arranged for the pupils to meet the team. Some of our pupils were also lucky enough to practise their shooting skills on the court!.

This was a fantastic experience and we have been invited back to attend another game in the near future. A huge thank you to The University of Worcester’s Glyn Harding (Principal Lecturer in Sports Coaching Science and Student Athlete Mentor) for providing us with the tickets for the game.
