Triumphant Weekend for MU Basketball

By Peter Walker / 22 May 2013

The Melbourne University Basketball Club (MUBC) tasted success on the weekend, with both the men’s and women’s teams securing vital wins at home on Saturday night.

First up was the Women’s team who faced the Chelsea Gulls and managed to win by 12 points. According to President and player Rhia Mikkor, even though the game was close “…the girls were in control and able to get crucial stops and scores when needed”.

“It was a great team performance by the girls with four players in double figures on the score sheet”.

Next up on court was the Men’s team who bounced back from a few hard weeks with a convincing 38 point win over The Warrandyte Venom, with Nicholas Masunda headlining with 28 points scored at an impressive 80% accuracy. Billy Johns-Teni and Stefan Pomasan were also in good form with 16 and 15 points respectively.

With the season at the halfway point the teams are starting to set themselves up for the playoffs. President Mikkor is optimistic for the second half of the season: “The teams are starting to put everything together and getting good contributions from different players each week”.

“Hopefully the teams can get on a roll and get a few wins and take some confidence and momentum into the second half of the year”.
