PCP’s B. Hummerstone was doing his best to keep his team in the game with 12 of PCP’s 17 points in the 2nd quarter. This wasn’t enough to stop BTC going in at HT with a 47-35 lead with impressive shooting from A. King and clinical finishing in the paint from G. Das Neves.


F.Rose was tasked with stopping PCP’s B. Hummerstone and did a great job with the latter only able to 5 points, whilst Rose was able to score 4 points of his own. The strong defense enabled BTC to take the game further away from PCP by extending the lead to 69-48.

Taylor was picking apart the PCP defence with multiple assists. PCP finished the game with a flurry of baskets, but the result finished 90-63 in BTC’s favour.


This was a fantastic team performance by Team BTC who put in their best performance of the season, certainly from an offensive perspective with 4 players reaching double figures for points.
