Cowboys Lose Their Way As Uni II Come To Town
Nov 24, 2009, 8:06 pm

Cowboys get thumped at home with their biggest loses of the season. Cowboys 47 Uni 87.


The first quarter looked very promising for the Cowboys as they held the uni team to only 13 ponits.  Coach Julien Lawes said ‘I was very happy with the starting five effort with the rebounding, no second chance opportunities exactlly what I was looking for’.  Dan Cambell leading the way with 4 points in first quarter.


Second quarter the uni team start to find their stride and opened up a massive nineteen point lead.  With the Cowboys turning the ball over far to often which gave the Uni team freedom to attack the basket at every opportunity.  Gareth Williams trying to keep the home side in it with 8 points in the second quarter.  Half time Cowboys 22 uni 41.


Second half,  Cowboys fighting to try and stay in the game with the bench players on to try and  up the game tempo. With the small line up in the court, the second chance opportunities for the Uni team started to creep up which lead to a commanding 65- 33 lead going to the  fourth quarter.


During the start of the fourth quarter, the starting line up for the Cowboys tried to eat in to the massive lead with 2 big three points shots from Greg Kazek. However, the Uni team applied even more pressure by going into a full court press for the last six minutes of the game which led to a 87-47 win for the visiting side.

Newton Abbot Win As Broadclyst Run Out Of Ammo
Nov 24, 2009, 8:01 pm

Newton Abbot Pacers  72

Broadclyst Bullets        54

The Pacers returned to their home court after a 4 game road trip and collected another win lead again by player coach Robin Wilding Webb who collected another MVP performance.

Unlike previous matches the Pacers struggled to get it going early.  Broadclyst played with a strong defence and Newton Abbot were short of ideas only scoring 9 points in a subdued 1st quarter. 

Going into the second quarter – it was more of the same. Missed catches, balls bouncing off their own players and poor decisions on court all contributed to a well below par display.  Credit has to be given to the Broadclyst team, forcing some of these mistakes but also taking full advantage with some well drilled offence spearheaded by their MVP McCallum giving them a lead of 12 by the half. 

After the break the Pacers’ came out with renewed intensity and a change of defence.  Alex Wilson hit a 3 pointer at the start of the 3rd quarter which turned out to be the turning point of the game.  This shot sparked an 11-0 run and, by the end of the 3rd quarter, the Pacers had managed a 21 point turn around to lead by 9.  This was achieved with 11 third quarter points by the aforementioned Wilson and 8 from the offensive powerhouse Agamabar-Froud.

The Pacers went on another 13 point run early in the fourth quarter which effectively ended the game.  Throughout the last quarter the Pacers were able to rotate the bench to ensure all players got some minutes.

The game was closed with another (now almost customary) dunk from Clark Agamaber-Froud who also ended as the game’s top scorer.

Cup Heartbreak For Taunton In Closing Seconds
Nov 14, 2009, 12:22 pm

Taunton Revolution played North Devon in the Men’s Cup 1st Round on Monday Nov 9th. The first quarter would see Taunton show great play at both ends of the floor. Straight from the opening tip Marc Eggleton opened the game with a lay-up from a Matt Acott assist. From here strong defence lead to fast break opportunities and good passing gave them high percentage shots. Eggleton would also connect with two threes in the first quarter leading Taunton to a comfortable lead. North Devon remained focussed and took advantage of a lull in Taunton’s scoring to bring the game close, and then poured on the points with some hot shooting of their own to lead at the half 28-31.


At the start of the third period North Devon made a small run extending their lead, but Taunton fought right back establishing their running game once more. Brett Cooper found himself in foul trouble but remained aggressive, and some fantastic defence from Acott would put North Devon under pressure leading to steals and scoring opportunities. As the game came to a close Tad Gray stepped up to score and hit key free throws, and Martyn Gladys helped with strong inside play. Eggleton continued to score from outside, but it was a pass inside to Tad which he converted that tied the game at 56 with around 30 seconds to play. North Devon stayed tough on the offensive glass to put home a second chance basket with 6 seconds left. Following their last time out Taunton had the shot they wanted but it failed to drop giving North Devon the 56-58 win. Revolution will now enter the plate competition. Top Scorer on the night was Marc Eggleton with 17.

Peelers Reach For The Top!
Nov 10, 2009, 6:32 pm

Devon Peelers continued their impressive run of results this season with a 'less than convincing' 76 - 57 win over University III.

University III came into the match trying to settle their team down after losing Rhuji to the Uni II team and replacing him with Weatherhead from the II's. Peelers went into the match with only 8 players having lost Shane in the previous match to a serious knee injury.

Peelers decided to play a zone defence and give court time to some of their players that hadn't seen a great deal of it recently - this showed that it really is a team effort this year with Peelers.

Lee Taylor, Tay Christmas and Dave Buckley played most of the match supported by Mark Leach who hasn't been available most of the first part of the season. This allowed Karl Rowland and Dave Prywata to take some much needed bench time.

Despite Uni III's poor run of results recently they are a team not to be under-estimated, led by Phil Ghouri who was ably assisted by MVP C Ellard they were never out of the running in this match.

Peelers however had the experience and kept Uni III at a minimum of 12 points during the match and with Mark Leach taking a total of 3 charges including one massive one in a defence taking 6 charges in total Peelers looked in control and Uni III slightly inexperienced.

Dave Prywata still took MVP with 28 points but Adam Cooper obtained the best free throw conversion in a total of 13 points followed by Tay Christmas with 11 points and one long '3 pointer'.

Gareth Cooper and Lee Taylor popped up with 9 points apiece to ease this match to victory leaving Peelers, at least for now - top of the tree!

Weymouth Cowboys Big Road Win
Nov 10, 2009, 6:20 pm

Weymouth Cowboys pass a big test on the road against a hungry uni team looking for revenge. With a under strength cowboys roster, it’s a chance for the Sam Dodge, Sam Hepburn and Joel Woolrich to show captain Eric Olson what they were made of.


Both teams from the start, playing a very up tempo style of basketball leading to many lay up opportunities.  Marco Deter leading the way forWeymouth scoring six points in the first quarter, but it was down to the whole team to try and slow down the uni’s explosive offense.  With big steals from Nortan Rogers and Julien Lawes leading too easy lay ups. The game was starting to turn in the Cowboys favour, with score at the end of the frist quater 13-12 Cowboys.


The second quarter a much lower scoring affair with uni only adding six points and cowboys seven points before the half.


On to the second half, the uni on six points run, took the lead for the first time since the first quarter.  But to the home crowds disappointment, the Cowboys realled off six points unaswered  from Dan Campball and Nortan Rogers.


Towards the fourth quather all tied up 34-34, Cowboys would looked  to Captain Eric Olson for inspiration.  With six mins to go in the game, Eric was taking over the game on the defensive end with four vital rebounds.  Marco Deter was catching fire scoring eight of his eighteen points in the last quater.  Both sides in the last two mins of the game turning the ball over with some ill advised drill out of double teams.  Cowboys hanged on to win it 52-46. 


Roster/Scorers: Marco Deters 18, Julian Lawes 10, Norton Rogers 9, Dan Camball 5, Eric Olson 4, Sam Dodge 3, Alex Legg 2, Sam Hepburn, Jack Speary, Joel Woolrich, Connor Doherty

Exeter University III    41

Newton Abbot Pacers  90

The Pacers continued their road trip with a blow-out victory against a spirited University team

The tone was set early on with a long distance 3 pointer from player/coach Robin Wilding-Webb followed up with another 3 from Alex Wilson.  This gave the team confidence to pile on the pressure and race to a 25-8 lead at the end of the first quarter.

The 2nd quarter saw the introduction of the game’s top scorer Clark Agambar-Froud as the offensive scoring did not let up Pacers ending the half 47-16 up.  The 2nd quarter also saw the debut of Dominic Lant who started his Pacer’s career well with a solid performance in the paint.

Into the 2nd half & Newton Abbot continued the pressure at both ends of the floor with Agambar-Froud cementing his case for the game’s MVP with regular scoring, 4 blocked shots and a couple of assists.  However, this game was not won by one stand out performance – it was a great team effort at both ends of the floor.  This was reflected in the even scoring stats of the Newton Abbot Pacers.


Clark Agambar-Froud 21(MVP), Robin Wilding-Webb 17 Alex Wilson 12, John Gentry 9, Steve Waters  8, Dominic Lant 8, Jules Menzies 6, John Nicholson 4, Lee Heywood 3, Ed Hanlon 2

Double Barrelled – Double Trouble for Exeter University II
Nov 10, 2009, 6:17 pm

Exeter University II     68

Newton Abbot Pacers  80

Another Saturday morning – another trip to Exeter University but would the Newton Abbot Pacers enjoy this game as much as the game against University III last week?

It was a case of déjà-vu early in the game as, just like last week, the Pacers raced to a 23-6 lead at the end of the first quarter.  Exeter University changed their defensive set up and managed to slow down Newton Abbot’s offence in the 2nd quarter – reducing the lead to just 7. 

The teams traded baskets throughout the 3rd quarter with the Pacers relying heavily on the scoring exploits of both MVP Robin Wilding-Webb and Clark Agamabar-Froud (What is it with these double barrelled names in the Pacers’ team?)   Together, they scored all but 2 of the Pacers’ 23 points in the period.

At the start of the 4th – again Exeter Uni changed their defence, picked up the intensity and helped themselves to a 10-0 scoring run, making it a 2 point game with just 5 minutes to go.  This seemed to be the wake-up call Newton Abbot needed.  Following a Time Out, the Pacers came out with all guns blazing, outscoring their opponents 19-7 down the stretch with some strong play under the baskets from Dominic Lant & Marcel Muller and some help from the free throw line. With a game closing dunk from Agambar-Froud – this game was over.

University Continue Undefeated
Nov 10, 2009, 6:15 pm

On Saturday 7th November the Exeter University basketball first team took on the Broadclyst Bandits and looked to increase their winning streak to remain undefeated.


The game got off to a slow start for Exeter as the Bandits dominated the inside game, scoring basket after basket from the low post area. They demonstrated physical toughness and a good shooting touch from close range.  B. Harnel (#15) and T.Misiunas (#12) stood out in the 1st quarter for Broadclyst, scoring 17 of the total 23 points in the 1st quarter. 


Exeter began to pick up the pace in the 2nd half, and won the 3rd and 4th quarters by considerable margins. Exeter’s team defence picked up in the 2nd half as they held Broadclyst to 10 points in the 3rd and 15 in the 4th quarters. The offensive play began to flow much more smoothly and baskets were becoming easier to score as a result of better ball movement and a higher pace of play. The Broadclyst team began to fatigue as the 2nd half progressed, whereas the depth of the Exeter bench allowed them to stay at a good pace throughout the whole game. Henry Conrad (1st team captain) picked up his scoring in the 3rd quarter, scoring 9 consecutive points to get the Exeter offense rolling.


Exeter closed the 4th quarter with great team play and implemented a more spontaneous style to their offense. Henry Conrad made an awesome assist to Tom Longbottom on a sneaky backdoor cut under the basket midway through the quarter which made the crowd go wild. Stan Hung was left wide open on the last couple of plays of the game and knocked down two 3 point shots which, along with a 3 point basket from Odai Masharqa, finished off the Bandits convincingly.



Exeter MVP: Henry Conrad, 27pts (….plus a super amazing assist, which should be worth a few points to be honest)

Broadclyst MVP: T. Misiunas, 25 pts


Final score:  Exeter University 1st Team 80, Broadclyst Bandits 60
