FURY MEN HIT 8 THREES IN OPENING QUARTER!!

SONY CENTRE FURY 79 GLASGOW UNIVERSITY 58 Scottish Senior Men Division 1 Championship A 34-13 opening period for Fury Men against Glasgow University at the students home court saw the record books being checked for two amazing stats in that stanza. Not only did Fury hit 8 threes – just short of NBA record threes in a quarter but 7 of the 8 threes were consecutive with Fury officials convinced this could be a team record for consecutive 3 point shots. The 21pt opening quarter lead meant the game was as good as over. Fury Men are of course no strangers to 3pt shooting records with last season the team scoring a Scottish record 21 in one game against St.Mirren – just short of the then 24 rec

The U16 Men suffered a big loss to a side who could compete easily in Division 1. Thomas Henderson top scored for Fury with 10pts.

SONY CENTRE FURY 55 WEST LOTHIAN WOLVES 72

Scottish Championship Basketball U16 Woman Division 1 Only 4 behind at the half, Fury’s poor third quarter saw them fall out of a game that was always going to be tough without Scotland International Rosie Wallace – out through injury. However fellow Scotland Internationals Eabha Kerr – 17pts, Abby Rutter – 16pts and Katie McEwan – 15pts along with their teammates gave 100% as they fought all the way against a solid Wolves side. For Kerr and Rutter who still have another season as Cadettes this was again encouraging performances for the young players. Kerr in the guard spot has a lot of responsibility and is doing a great job as is Rutter whose shooting ability continues to develop. For Fury

SONY CENTRE FURY 75 WEST LOTHIAN WOLVES 80

Scottish Championship Basketball U16 Men Division 1 32 points from Scotland International Jack Davidson was not enough to save Fury from losing a vital match at the top of the Championship table. With an incredible 7 teams locked in a struggle to gain an edge in the title race, this was a big loss for the Falkirk side. Ahead 23-18 at the end of the first period, that 5 pt lead was overhauled in the second stanza as Wolves with a 24-18 period led by 1 at the half. Wolves maintained their gradual momentum taking the third also to lead by 5 going into the last quarter. That period was tied at 20 apiece as Fury were unable to close the gap. Jake Cavanagh had 13pts with Ellis Walker returning to

JUNIOR MEN STAVE OFF WOLVES IN TIGHT GAME

SONY CENTRE FURY 91 West Lothian Wolves Basketball Club Registered Charity #sco45197 79 Scottish Championship Basketball Junior Men Division 1 With Fury Junior Men in what is now fast becoming a two horse title race with rivals St.Mirren, a loss to anyone prior to that vital reverse fixture home game, is not an option. Fury who lost by only 6 in Paisley need a 7pt plus win in that game to potentially be Scottish Champions. But there is half a season to go and the first half almost ended in disaster for the Falkirk side at Armadale where the Wolves clawed their way to a shock 26-12 opening quarter lead.
