Good morning Sphinxers! It’s already been a while, but I would still like to present to you the recap of Sphinx D-Day. In other words, it’s time for another #SphinxWeeCaps !!!
Saturday 8-4 12:00 | BV Sphinx DS1 – Twente Buzzards (63 – 49)
Sonia: Last game promised to be interesting since we lost the away game against this team. We started winning by 12 with a good offense and defense, but then they reached us and were close to the score. We still had a lead of about 5 points in the halftime. Both teams played with intensity trying to win the last game. Their press made us nervous and it was difficult to score, but when we organized our play, we managed to make a good difference in the score. It was a nice way to finish the league being second! And thank you for your support.
Saturday 8-4 14:00 | BV Sphinx HS1 – BV Batouwe HS2 (100 – 62)
Easy win for men’s 1st. In between the exciting games of the ladies and men’s 2nd, we had a less important matchup against a team from the bottom of our league. Despite that they started quite strong, it became soon clear that we were going to win this game with relative ease. This reflected on our concentration, especially in defense, and therefore we allowed them to score way too many points, namely 62. This was not really a problem since we found our rhythm offensively, leading to us scoring a season-high of 100 points. Conclusion: not a pretty game but eventually a solid W.
Saturday 8-4 16:00 | BV Sphinx HS2 – Black Stars HS1 (64 – 50)
Last Saturday in the last and most important game of the season Sphinx HS2 had to overcome one more time the tough team from Rhenen (Black Stars) in order the players of Wageningen’s University team become Champions! The game started with Sphinx leading in the score finding free shots against the zone defense of Black Stars! The team from Rhenen achieved to approach the score but not to take the lead due to the good and determined defense of Sphinx’s players! The end of the game found us to win the game by 14 points and celebrate the Championship for the first time in our history! Sphinx HS2 Champions 2016-2017!
Once again thank you all for the support, it was a perfect ending to an amazing season for us.
