    U16 Boys North Premier

    Northamptonshire Titans 119-74 City of Birmingham Rockets

    Titans took on Birmingham Rockets for their first meeting this season, Titans right from the tip ‘bossed’ the game. Captain Sam Grant could not be contained close to Rockets’ basket and Jude Carmichael’s high work rate paid off with back to back scores, Rockets picked themselves up to get themselves back in the contest and were rewarded with just 10 points behind the title chasing Titans.

    In the second Jamal Jack showed his continued improvement, whilst Taiwo Hamilton kept up the tempo. Rockets just could not stay with Titans and the lead began to stretch thanks to some exceptional finishing by Ben Nailer and Ollie Dominque.

    The second half produced a replica of the first with Titans displaying some great transition play whilst the visitors acclimatised to the intensity level.

    Top Scorers:

    Carmichael 26, Grant 18, Hamilton 14, Nailer 12, Dominque 11, Jack 10

    West Bromwich Albion 111-37 Northamptonshire Titans Purple

    Following last weekend’s promising weekend, Titans Purple travelled to Dudley College with a renewed confidence on Saturday to meet West Bromwich Albion. Titans made a good start but struggled to keep up with the team currently sitting at the top in the Midlands West Conference. Titans battled during the second quarter but on this occasion, it was just too tall a mountain to climb.

    Titans Purple take on Coventry Tornadoes at home on Sunday this week.

    NBL D2 North Conference

    Derbyshire Gems 83-68 Northamptonshire Titans

    Gems had recruited well in the post season and with that Titans knew the early season fixture would certainly test their resolve.

    Both teams exchanged scores early on, with Titans offense being led by Paige Vyse. The experience of Gems shone through as wave after wave of fast break saw Titans trail by 11 points.

    Titans defence picked up in the second keeping Gems to just 11 points whilst Vyse continued her assault on Gems defence backed up well by Sascha Thompson.

    The pivotal point in the game was when Gems’ Clayden hit 4 back to back 3 pointers, after which, Titans could just not recover.

    Top Scorers:

    Vyse 31, Thompson 14

    U14 Boys Midlands West Conference

    Worcester Bears 59-90 Northamptonshire Titans

    The U14 Boys turned in one of their best performances of the season as they took on Worcester Bears and recorded an impressive 90-59 win. Bears talented guard scored 10 of 21 points in the first quarter but close attention, particularly from Ciaran Myers, reduced his effectiveness for the remaining quarters. Bears found it increasingly difficult to find a way to the basket and Titans were able to clean up the defensive boards without too much trouble due to their significant height advantage. By half-time, Titans had opened up a 16-point lead with well-executed offenses and strong offensive rebounding by Benji Leesing. The second half was a similar story with Titans frustrating Bears’ offence and finishing well at the other end of the floor. Once again, there was a good spread of scoring with five Titans reaching double figures. All Titans made good contributions and the game was played in good spirits with both teams displaying excellent sportsmanship.

    Top Scorers:

    Isaac Round 20, Leesing 19, Harry Mitchell 14, Sean Rawlins 14 and Tyrese Cuffy-Smith 12.

    U14 Girls Midlands Conference

    Bucks Hornets 68-54 Northamptonshire Titans

    The U14 Girls took to the road this weekend to visit Bucks Hornets. With something to prove the girls took to the floor with a strong opening couple of minutes. It very quickly became clear that the pressure that the girls were putting Hornets under was unsettling them with steal after steal. Akanumu fought hard on the court defending Hornets’ point guard with ease. Zvidra was working hard at both ends of the floor contributing 7 points and was working with Williams to stop the ball. The girls kept the intensity up throughout but just lost out in the end.

    Top scorers Virag 17, McCahill-Brown 12.

    This weekend Titans face local rivals Northants Lightning
