Huskies 2 move into the second round to face Llanelli

The SWBA Division Cup competition tipped off tonight at Holm View Leisure Centre, as Barry Huskies 2 made their return to SWBA play after a season out working together as a development team. Coach Elliott Thomas' came in well prepared and ready to face the the experienced Storm 2's who were returning a number of their squad that finished 8th in SWBA D2 Men last season. The game was controlled by the Huskies from the start as they applied a full-court pressure defense throughout the first half. 

After establishing a sold 42-18 lead at half-time, the Barry squad continued to stay in control of the game while rotating their squad and working on their new set plays for the season. Swansea continued to fight throughout the second half, but couldn't compete with the scoring pace of the Huskies. 

The game MVP's were voted on by the two coaches, with coach Thomas selecting Swansea forward Oli George, while Coach Gavin Williams selected Barry's big-man Jamie Miller. Miller dominated the glass throughout the game and was efficient scoring in the paint and on putbacks as he led all scorers with 23 points. 

Leading Scorers:

Huskies 2 Storm 2
J. Miller 23 O. George 10
M. Eccles 10 S. Cuomo 9
R. Wood 8 G. Williams 7
