Match Report

🏀 Lions defeat Heriot Watt to remain unbeaten 🏀

Edinburgh Lions 74 - Heriot Watt 53

The Lions squared off against Heriot Watt in their third match of the season. In what has become a familiar theme, the lions got off to another slow start trading turnovers and baskets with HW Uni in a low scoring neck and neck first quarter. Both teams picked up the offensive intensity in the second quarter, showcasing some excellent ball handling and finishing.

With the game tied and two minutes until half the Lions came out of a time out roaring! Strong defence, and a couple three’s from game MVP Víctor González Bernat ignited a 10-0 run to close the half. The defensive effort continued onto the third quarter, HW Uni was held scoreless for the first 7 minutes as the Lions extended their lead to 20.

The Lions finished strong to remain undefeated and improve to 3-0 on the year.
