Varsity Returns Tonight

Coach Westley will be looking to do the unthinkable on Friday night as he looks for his 4th straight varsity win over University of Nottingham. The game tips off at 8pm ta the Motorpoint Arena.

Last season saw Trent 3-peat with a 58-64 win on the back of standout performances from Hoods player Tom Ballentine. This season sees the likes of Andrej Slavic takes to the court against a talented University of Nottingham, coached by former-BBL star Mindaugas Janiska.

Coach Westley guided his team to the BUCS Basketball Trophy last season and finished a solid 3rd with a 5&5 record in Midlands 1A this season. University of Nottingham on the other hand have had a tough year following promotion last season from Midlands 1A, finishing bottom of Premier North with a 2&8 record. In National League Division 4, the two teams have faced off against each other twice, with University of Nottingham taking both wins on their way to winning the league with a 13&3 record, Nottingham Trent Hoods finishing 4th with a 9&7 record.

It is always a great atmosphere and event and with so many Hoods players involved it’s sure to be a great evening.
