Following on from the Brave III performance the day before, Brave II had to pull on their jerseys and represent in a similar fashion. They did NOT let us down, winning their pre-season friendly against Aces by 41pts. Everyone performed fantastically, having participated in the Cardiff 10k the morning of the match (as a warm-up!!!) Liam PAYNE netted 15+ points from all over the court. The purpose of a pre-season is to build team cohesions and put into practice tactics and strategies for the season and our Braves executed an excellent team performance. From Big Man, 'El Hombre Grande' Carlos LAGUARTA getting nuff blocks defensively and put backs offensively to player / coach Matt OTRIDGE who also netted 15+ pts, some from the 3pt line, several from penetrative drives to basket, a couple off a steal and finish. Well done Braves. Build on this momentum, continue to put into practice what we do in training and there will be much more successes to come.
