- National Teams
Tommy Freeman finished with 23 points on his way to being named MVP of the final, which was a re-match of the 2011 title game resulting in exactly the same outcome, as Worcester won their sixth title in nine years. Freeman was joined in double figures by Sherrad Prezzie-Blue (12), Kazlauskas (12), and Aleksas Zimnickas (11). Mario Flaherty led Durham with 26 points before fouling out, Hinnenkamp added 18, and Capocci had 16 with DJ Glavan contributing 10.
LSBU vs Oxford (7th/8th place playoff)
There seems to be very few basketball players who could get motivated for a 9am game on a Sunday playing for 7th place. Despite starting that way, as LSBU had just three players in kit warming up with 3 minutes until tip off, it ended up being an extremely competitive encounter with LSBU coming out on top 83-64. Nathan Ashley led LSBU with 27 points, Ave Antonio had 19 points, and Jason Sayers added 10. Oxford were led by Karolis Bauza’s 20 points, Dalwadi had 13.
Brunel vs Middlesex (5th/6th place playoff)
Brunel game out running and gunning in the first half to lead throughout, and despite a near monumental fourth quarter collapse, escaped with a 78-75 victory. Louis Sayers once again led Brunel with 26 points, Tom Politi had 13 whilst Daniel Dunscombe joined them in double figures with 10. Jamel Felix finished with 18, Aaron Moseley had 13 and Piper had 12 for Middlesex.
Leeds Met Carnegie vs Northumbria (3rd/4th place playoff)
Leeds Met jumped out to a huge lead from the tip and survived a late surge from Northumbria to secure the bronze medal with a 79-69 win. Henry Wilkins and Sean Clifford had 14 each to lead Leeds, with Armand Anebo adding 12. Jack Thompson led the comeback that came short with 19 points, whilst Siman Stewart added 18 as despite the loss, Northumbria finished with their highest finish ever.
