Exeter and District Basketball Play Offs 2013/14


Sunday 23rd March saw the Play Off Finals of the Exeter and District Basketball league following a very good season of basketball since early September 2013.

The first final was competed by two new teams to EDBA, they were QE Crediton Chargers and Weymouth Cowboys – this was the ‘Men’s Inter Division’ Play Offs with the bottom four teams in Division I competing with the top 4 in Division II, as it happens both teams came from Division II, they reached the final courtesy of the following results:

QE Crediton Chargers


Bridport Evolution


YMCA Torbay Tiger Cubs


QE Crediton Chargers


Weymouth Cowboys




Weymouth Cowboys


Exmouth Jesters I


The first half saw QECC with their 7’3” Mike LEWIS and Dan WIECZOREK rebounding the boards both offensively and defensively and Captain / Coach Alex BOARDMAN hitting 3’s go into the break with a 39 – 21 lead and Weymouth struggling to find a foothold in the game.

The second half was completely different, MVP V BALCIUNAS was marshalling Mike LEWIS well and Dan WIECZOREK getting into foul trouble, Craig SORRELL for Weymouth then found his range, by the end of the 3rd quarter QECC’s lead was down to 8 points. The 4th quarter continued the same in the same vein and by the 5th minute of this final quarter the teams were level. In the 8th minute QECC completely self-destructed and several unenforced errors and bad decision making led to Weymouth keeping their nerve and finishing strong winning the Play Off 82 – 63 (a 47 point turnaround!)

Congratulations to Weymouth Cowboys for their win.


The second final of the day saw Exeter Eagles battle it out with Newton Abbot Pacers for the Ladies Play Off Final.

Newton Abbot Pacers


Weymouth Huskies


Exeter Eagles


Exeter University


Newton Abbot Pacers came to the final via the easiest semi final but Exeter Eagles had a strong side and finished higher in the league.

The match itself ticked along fairly uneventful but both teams traded basket and at half time Pacers led 37 – 35. The third quarter continued the same with baskets being traded, as the clock ticked away and both teams in the knowledge that the title was there for the taking the game started to open up, at the end of the third Pacers still had a 2 point advantage 59 – 57 but Eagles will have taken courage from the buzzer beating 3 point basket.

The final quarter started well for Pacers with MVP ‘Becca’ SHORT marshalling Olga OZOLA well and by the 3rd minute Pacers had extended their lead to 7 points. Eagles were desperate to get the ball back but in the process went into foul trouble and despite 6 free throws at the end of the game Eagles were unable to convert and Newton Abbot Pacers ran out 82 – 73 victors.



The Final game of the day beckoned and it looked like a cracker of a game with YMCA Torbay Tigers going head to head with Exeter University I who finished 2nd and 1st in the league respectively. The Men’s Division I Play Off Final was a spectacular event and a great advert for the game of basketball within the South West.


YMCA Torbay Tigers




Exeter University I


Crewkerne Thunder



YMCA Torbay Tigers have some well-known players in their side, Lloyd BLACKLER, Clark AGAMBAR and Gareth LAWS (ex Plymouth Raiders) plus other well drilled players that have come up through the ranks of junior basketball from Churston school and Torbay Tigers. Exeter University I are full of well-disciplined players with great skill and grounded no less than Tadas KRIVICKAS and Paul ANSTISS in their last years at the University.

These matches always throw up a great mix of skill, hard work and good old fashioned fight and this was no disappointment. Exeter University won the tip and started the points going, they soon led 21 – 5, it seemed Torbay were still on their benches and had not woken up yet, although in the 8th minute they recovered they still finished the quarter 23 – 15 down.

The second quarter started to go the same way and University extended their lead by the end to 46 – 31, was there any way back?

Coach Richard MORRISON was instilling confidence in his own player’s ability and it seemed to work, and was assisted by University not being able to buy a basket, each shot that went up spun off the ring or similar and the ball not dropping was obviously becoming psychological to the players, Torbay outscored University 28-13 in that quarter and the scores were level 59 each – GAME ON!!

The final quarter was a ‘hum dinger’ trading baskets was now the name of the game and the lead was first going to Torbay then swinging back to University, it needed a player to take the lead and MVP Tadas KRIVICKAS was that man, in the final quarter he scored 14 of University’s 17 points and Torbay could not find an answer to defend against him, Exeter University I won the match 79 – 74, but the real winner was Exeter and District Basketball – a great day’s basketball displaying the ability of players in our area.


Eagles go through to the final!

Ladies Play off 10th march 2014 Maynard School

Exeter Eagles 64 Exeter University 49.


Cracking game at Maynard School last night when the Eagles took on the Uni to see who would progress to the play off finals on the 23rd of March. Both teams at full strength.(In the Eagles case for the first time this year).

The Game opened with Rozenblum the University’s new American, nailing 2 back to back 3 point shots, an impressive start. But after 5 minutes the Eagles had pulled it back and then started to ease away and at the end of the first quarter lead 22 to 9. This was soon to all change. The University Coach switched to Zone from G2G defence and this worked very well and upset the flow of the game. At one point the University ran off 13 points without reply despite Coach Henman using up 2 time outs. Half time could not come quick enough. 29 to 27 to the Eagles.

With a few words and a re think the game swung again back toward the Eagles. At this point Carlotta Molfese their Italian point guard took the game by the scruff of the neck. Running the offence with great effect driving dishing off making the team play. ‘Carlotta changed the game for us, pulling all the strings. It was the best I have seen her play this year. A lesson to us all’ said Coach Henman. Poppy Whewell and Rachel Hopkins did a great job on defence stopping the Universities top scorers and Olga Ozola chipped in with 24 for the Eagles.

Eagles pulled out to a 54-34 lead by the end of the quarter. Outscoring the University Ladies 25-7.

The game in real terms was now over with both teams trading baskets in the 4th period.

Final score 64 -49.

The Eagles would like to say farewell to Elsa Crowther who is moving on to pastures new. She playe with us for a couple of season as

Congratulations to Exmouth Jesters I for winning the Men’s Division II title!!


Men's Division II








































































Unfortunately the automated website does not take into consideration the EB Positioning (rule 6.3) that accounts for what happens when teams are level on points scored.


Basically all teams that are level are involved (in this case 3), you look at their head to head games and decide who comes top of that ‘mini league’, therefore there are 6 fixtures involved (as below),  all have won 2 games so goes on points difference, QECC have + 39, Torbay Tigers Cubs have -7, Weymouth have -15 QECC win that mini group and they take 2nd position, a new mini group of 2 teams is then created (Weymouth and YMCA Torbay Tiger Cubs) and only results from their head to head count.


Both have won one match, Torbay Tiger Cubs have 6 points and Weymouth Cowboys have -6, therefore YMCA Torbay Tiger Cubs finish £rd and Weymouth Cowboys finish 4th.

Plymouth Brushed Aside by Pacers
Nov 13, 2013, 6:11 pm


Following the defeat in their last game, could Pacers get back to winning ways in this game against Plymouth University?   However, Taylor Prout’s basket within the first 4 seconds of the game was a quick indication of the dominance that Pacers were going to have in this game. Following this, a combination of some good transitional play by the team and perimeter shooting by Sian Martin meant that, by the mid-way point of the first period Pacers held an eleven points to nil lead.  In the latter stages of the period the Plymouth University girls gained a foothold into the game with two baskets, but the period was finished with a basket by debutant Laura Martinetto to give Pacers a 13 points to 4 lead at the first break. The second period saw Pacers increase the intensity of their defence in an attempt not to concede a basket during the ten minutes of play.  The ploy succeeded until the eighth minute when Plymouth University scored their only basket of the period.  However the increased defensive pressure across the court did force many University turnovers, to which Leigh Piercy and Ellie Morrison, in particular, capitalised on to score freely to extend Pacers lead to 31points to 6 at half time. 


The beginning of the second half saw another spurt of scoring by Pacers, with Gill Sinden showing some particularly good shooting form as the lead was extended to 41points to 8 at the mid-way point of the period.   As with the first period the scoring for the remainder of the period was relatively even between the two teams, but again the last basket of the period was scored by Pacers; this time Ali Sinden scored a fine 3 point basket to leave Pacers 46 to12 points ahead at the third break.  The final period saw Pacers maintain their domination of the game throughout, keeping a steady flow of baskets during the 10 minutes of play and conceding just the one, enabling Pacers to eventually win the game 63 points-14. 

Overall, this was a good all round performance by the team with the players showing good intensity in defence and executing a range of attacking strategies to break down the University zone defence.


Scorers/Players: E. Morrison 17, L. Piercy 13, S. Martin 9, A. Sinden 6, G. Sinden 6,
