St Peter’s School Cambridge Girls opened their account at theISF Basketball World Schools Championship in Greece with a 58-41 win in a physical encounter with Greece.
Despite afew handling errors from St Peter’s in what Head Coach Leanne Walker described as a “nervous start,” the Schick National Champs were still able to forge a 15-8 opening quarter lead.
The momentum stayed with St Peter’s in the second quarter – they led 27-18 at half time and would go on to win all four periods.
Walker commented that there was some adjustments to be made as the games consisted of 4×8 minute quarters.
“It was a physical encounter with Greece adopting a determined pressing effort. This was overcome by some slick passing and good ball movement. Greece then dropped back into a zone but a corner three after some excellent inside-out action meant they switched out of that pretty quickly,” added Walker.
Unfortunately we do not have the individual scorers from the game.
St Peter’s are drawn in Group E of the girl’s competition alongside teams from Israel, Latvia as well as the Greek team and face Israel on Sunday at 5pm local time.
