basketball action2
Worthing College progressed to the final fours in the U19 England Dynamic National Colleges competition for the first time in College history. Worthing beat a tough Cirencester team 82-51 who travelled down from Gloucestershire.

Worthing opened the first quarter with great defensive pressure which Cirencester struggled to deal with turning the ball over which lead to easy baskets, Josh Brown was dominant the whole game finishing with 36 points. John Bacarro and Sam Gulla were both vital in securing the win with great defensive pressure the whole game and good offensive distribution. Coach Baker was pleased with the result and is looking forward to the final fours. ” The team did a great job today, offensively against a man to man defence it’s the best I’ve seen us play, we executed the offences perfectly and got great looks at the basket every time down the floor. We have a few weeks now to work on some key aspects of our offence and defensive sets in order to prepare for the final fours. We have a legitimate shot at winning a national title, credit to all my players involved in the program.”
