The Oratory Basketball Team Finish 2nd in League

The Dragons travelled to Pangbourne knowing a win could secure a 2nd place finish in the league. The game started very evenly with Pangbourne sitting in a tight 2-3 zone. We found it hard to get to the basket and relied on outside shooting to gain points. However a good baseline drive from Max Wang along with an excellent steal and fast-break layup from Hysan Chan meant it was 8-8 at the end of the first quarter. The 2nd quarter was equally as close with Pangbourne going 4 points ahead, however 2 baskets from Kevin Yang turned it around and we lead 19-17 at half time.

An excellent 3rd quarter followed, playing with higher intensity we increased our lead to 10 points. Kevin scored a few more of his 19 points, Tolu Awoniyi hit a 3 pointer and Hysan continued to win the ball scoring another excellent lay-up. In the 4th quarter Tobe Ogbue found his shooting form scoring 3 straight baskets and with Timmy Owusu Brew gaining a total of 18 rebounds we closed out the game to win 46-38 and secure the runner up spot in the league.  Well done boys.
