Coach urges Reds to rise to the occasion

Sport | Published:

FORT Regent will be a hive of activity tomorrow – should travel problems not interfere – with three inter-insular basketball matches along with a show from the Jersey Wheelers and shooting competitions for players and crowd interaction.

The business end of the day will be the men's match, from 3.30 pm, with Jersey keen to end Guernsey's current three-match winning run.

Jersey's men's team pulled back a 20-point deficit last year and they missed a three-point basket in the dying seconds leaving Guernsey the victors by just two points.

The atmosphere at basketball matches is always electric and the razzmatazz starts with the under-17s at 10 am. The Jersey Wheelers are putting on a wheelchair basketball demonstration at 12 noon before the under-21s take centre stage between 1 and 2.30 pm.

Various fun themed basketball shooting competitions follow for players and crowd interaction before the main men's match . There is no women's game this weekend as Jersey have a number of players injured therefore they are unable to raise a team.
