Varsity Basketball Pre-Match

11th March 2010

After Netball brought the series within a point now standing at 3-2 Uni all eyes will turn once again to Clifton campus Sports Centre for Varsity Basket 2010, as Trent try to level the series. The URN Sports Team were lucky enough to catch up with the President of the Basketball team, James Tobias.

The Nottingham University Men’s Basketball Team have enjoyed a season of mixed fortunes. In a very close league the last game of the season was the undoubted highlight. Having won their last game they received news of their relegation before being told that this was an error. They head into the Varsity game with a record of 4 wins and 6 defeats in a season that saw a good cup run. The experience of winning one-off cup games could prove invaluable as they take on a Trent team hoping to retain the Basketball trophy, following last year’s 61-48 victory. Uni play in the league above Trent, and expect to beat them, but it would be a mistake to write of the Trent team playing in front of a home crowd. With the Varsity score standing at 3-2 to Uni, this game could be pivotal in building momentum for the rest of the series.
