Unfortunately, due to timings, M3 game was cancelled but they still managed to play a friendly against Stirling university with them managing to still win by about 40 points. The final score was 64-18.
M2 also won 100-81 against Stirling University. It was a close score at half time, 51-47 but they managed to pull away second half. Craig Ferguson stood out throughout the game scoring 27 points, of which 15 of those were from free throws. Anthony Ejidike also finished strong, scoring 12 out of 20 points in the fourth quarter. The coaches said that it was a great effort from the team overall, they managed to really step up in the second half!
Last but not least, the M1 had a tough game but managed to pull through and win by 9 in the end. Team rep, Brendan Mullan says that Heriot Watt is a great team and they move the ball fast. It was their first time playing as a team in the BUCS league and they were a bit rusty from this, managing to turn the ball over a lot in the first half. However, they were determined to play together as a team and improved by the end quarter! They still managed to do a great job in representing EUBC. The final score was 54-43.
