First day of the Betty Codona Classic in Sheffield saw four games – three quite clear wins (by numbers) and one closer battle.

Game that ran the closest was Barking Abbey vs Northumbria – the ‘women in black’ almost dug themselves out of a 20 point hole, with a chance to make it a two point game in the final minutes. But with the miss, and Barking’s Bratlova hitting a BIG three at the other end from the following attach.. it was a seven point game – instead of two. Giryanova sunk four out of four from the charity stripe as Barking held on to the win and progressed into the Cup semi-final vs Nottingham Wildcats.

Other three games saw clear winners, with Leicester Riders, Sheffield Hatters and Nottingham Wildcats taking the road to semi-finals of BCC 2015.

– Top scorer of the day : Carmen Reynolds/Nottingham Wildcats with 30 points

– Top rebounder of the day : Kayla Mobley/Northumbria with 13 rebounds.

– Pass of the day : Gabby Nikitinaite/Sevenoaks Suns with behind the ┬áback from a fast break (no basket, but free-throws were made.. so just for the sheer visual pleasure.. this takes the top spot!)
