WBBL – Basketball at f1.8

Little bit of Women’s Basketball to help Saturday afternoon go by !

Leicester Riders Interviews

As it had been a while since a game in the UK, for me – I headed down to Cardiff for the Trophy game between Archers and Riders.  Enjoyable game at the ‘green room’ – with Archers missing Stef Collins for the first half of the game (due to traveling difficulties – from overseas as I understood it).

Archers still kept the game nice and close – and if it hadn’t been for the on the ‘death’ three pointer.. it would have been even closer.

For me – the game was mostly about giving the Canon 200mm f1.8 lens another outing. The lens just gives beautiful images – even if my copy probably will be retired in the next year or two.

Second half saw Riders pulling away quickly with Maaja Bratka working the point from under the basket on her way to a big double-double. Bratka and Evans combined for 44 points of the Riders 81 points.

It was also big thanks to Elliot-King who hit some crucial three pointers at the right time for Riders. For Archers – Collins entered the game for a while in the second half, but Riders kept pulling away.

In the end a comfortable win for Riders, who take another step closer to the Trophy Final – after the game, quick comments from Riders side with Kastine Evans and Coach Harber giving their views of the game.
