The U10 A team played a tight game against Toronto French School on December 14th. TFS and UCC were jockeying for the lead throughout the game, which ended in a tie 34-34, and sent the team into overtime.
TFS pulled ahead in the extra minutes of play and managed to win by only 2 baskets: 38-34.
UCC boys have much to be proud of. In the 3 practices since our last game, they have been working on defense, rebounding and passing and cutting. The defensive improvements shown in the game were notable. Strong rebounding skills were shown by Jackson Yip, who could be counted on to “crash the boards”, making many shooting opportunities. The team also showed improvement in team play by passing to make scoring opportunities. The entire team “hustled” and played with passion.
The team is working hard and beginning to gel.
We look forward to our next games at the SHS tournament, a must play event, on January 13, 2018.
