Haringey Sixers Coach Perry Lawson commented ‘Hats off to the coaching staff at St Bons as they do a great job with the young team they have. They have a never say die attitude and have taken us right down to the wire both games this season. If that team sticks together they are sure to do great things within UK basketball. I have to say that I am pleased with how we responded straight after half time to come out and go on the run we did. It just put us in a commanding position to see out this game. Still a lot of room for improvement and we are a work in progress.’
