Worthing college Basketball Academy started off the season with an exciting overtime win against a weakened Bhasvic team. With 1 minute left in the game Worthing found themselves down 2 points but 2 big 3 pointers from Sam Gulla sealed the victory! In a low scoring affair 51-47 Sam gulla lead all scorers with 24 points, Connor mountifield chipped in with 11. A great defensive effort from Aaron Veale and Dustin Marques proved pivotal factors in the victory. Coach Dominic Baker said ” it was important to get the Win however we have a long way to go! We have to get more productivity out of our big men, basketball favours the taller player and we have to develop and use our size to our advantage. Sam Gulla could be an exceptional basketball player however as a point guard decision making is very important and right now he needs to compose himself on the court and be a leader for this team”.
