Braves III continued their winning start to the season (after starting their season with a 56 - 37 victory over North Somerset Comets) with another comprehensive victory against Speedwell Dogs. Speedwell have proved to be a tricky opponent for Braves over the past couple of years, but this time around Braves stormed to a quick 11-0 lead and never looked back. With a new coach, George Varney, and a couple of new players in the mix, Braves have seen success with their high energy defence leading to steals and fast break opportunities. In this game Braves' showed more offensive maturity in the half court, resulting in a balanced scoresheet with eight players scoring 4 points or more. Dean Metcalfe led all scorers with 13pts and Nick Cooper was named MVP with 10pts. Next game is in a fortnight versus Swindon Silverbacks.
