Last Saturday, Dwight’s Lions took part in a basketball tournament against various other teams. We worked as a team and hustled to win their first 3 games, we beat Forest (34-20), Mill Hill (36-23) and UCS (16-14). All of these games were very intense and the Lions played some great basketball, even though this was the first game after more than a year.
Sadly they couldn’t beat Watford (21-24) but, seeing how well we played, it did not feel like a defeat. Furthermore, Charlie won the 3-Point competition and Luke came second place in the Dunk competition (although many sources claim the points were rigged…)
Even though we did not win all of our games, we managed to come second place and play some amazing basketball. It was a great way to say goodbye to our recent graduates (Luke and Charlie), as this was the last time they will play as Dwight Lions!

On Wednesday, the M2-M4 year group took on UCS's basketball team. It was a great game by Dwight, where we kept fighting to eventually win 48-45! Early on in the game, key player and starting point guard Micah had to leave the game due to injuries. This was a big loss for us but luckily Omer stepped up to the challenge!
He played as point guard for the rest of the match, controlling the pace, and ended up with a very good performance that helped us to the win. Also a massive game from Joshua in M2, who received MVP for his big 7 points and vital rebounds on both sides of the floor that allowed us to have second chance opportunities.
Top scorer for Dwight was Kiran with 21 points, but it was an all-around effort from Dwight that led us to the victory.
