HBAED Unbeaten in U14 London Youth Basketball

The U14 London Youth Basketball games tipped off yesterday at Dulwich College, where our boys emphatically represented the academy with a huge performance.

GAME 1 vs Charter

Basketball 3Clad in the HBAED white-striped shorts and light blue tops, the boys won the first tip, with Sheriff passing it straight to the team’s most skilled player, Bilaal, who immediately set the tone with the first bucket from a 17ft jumper. This got the team motivated from the onset as they pressured Charter’s shaky offense with the half-court man-to-man defence system keeping them out of the HBAED zone with only two points made against HBAED’s 18 at the half. In the second half, HBAED’s offence was led by Bilaal’s court vision and Nathan’s on-target mid-range jumpers supported by Subir’s timely rebounding finishing the game with a mighty 31-3 win.

Basketball 2Next up was a tight match up against STAC who had also won their first game. But the HBAED boys had grown in confidence and at this point had built up an understanding of each other's strengths and reflected on the previous game’s mistakes that needed to be addressed. STAC started off with a 4-0 lead which got the boys to focus on denying the opponent the ball. Yacine-Nour led the defence that kept STAC's key player out of the game, allowing HBAED’s offence led by Bilaal’s sharp shooting to get going. Allan’s daring passes got Sherrif, Kalvin and Subir stacking up the points that got HBAED cruising away with a 21-15 win.

GAME 3 vs Compass

Basketball 1Fully energised from the previous game, it was clear that HBAED’s big men - Sabur, Sherrif, Kalvin - were in rhythm to keep the paint clear and post up on offence against a Compass side that was clearly lacking the required skill to stop them. Nasir stepped up his offence leading all scorers with his signature euro-step that was clearly unstoppable. Jordan’s effort on both ends of the floor gave HBAED a 19-8 lead at half-time. Through good communication on the floor, team effort and  discipline, the boys humbled Compass with the highest points of the day - 51-16.

Mr May

Man of the Match: Nathan was fantastic ion both ends of the floor (defence and offence) dominating the mid-range shooting.

Key Player: Bilaal’s court vision and leadership was unmatched throughout all the games making it easier for the boys to thrive over their opponents.

Stepping Up: Two hero's here. Allan’s developed confidence strengthened the offence. While Subur’s heroic rebounding skills created more opportunities.
