NASSA under-15s opened the new basketball season with a fantastic victory against Cambridge Cats at the weekend.

Cats took an early lead, but NASSA were quick to respond and then scored a number of baskets to move into a comfortable lead.

By half time, the Newham side led 51-12 and in the third quarter, nifty footwork and strong drives to the basket by George Jarvis, William Acheampong and Myles Laurent-Smart, helped the team to stay in the ascendancy.

Impressive teamwork and solid lay-ups from Eromosele Unabona, Alex Semanda and Phillip Osemwegie added further points to the NASSA score, as they ran out convincing 95-21 winners.

Head coach Kelvin Facey said: "It was excellent to win our first game of the season.
