MK Breakers begin their NBL Division 2 campaign and return to KitKing Trophy action this weekend as they face Richmond Knights and Hemel Storm respectively.
Billy Beddow will be pleased with his team’s performances so far this campaign, Dante Langley (19.0PPG) currently sits ninth in the KitKing Trophy’s top ten players for points per game, whilst Jordan Spencer (18.5PPG, 8.0APG, 6RPG) has also excelled
First up for MK Breakers is their league opener against Richmond Knights at Bletchley Leisure Centre – tip-off 5pm.
The Knights missed out on promotion last season by just two points and will bring a good litmus test for Breakers first game in NBL Division 2.
The London based outfit will be making their season debut and will no doubt be looking to impress their fans from the off.

Attention then turns to Sunday and the KitKing Trophy as MK Breakers travel South to face Hemel Storm.
The Storm were the only team to beat Breakers last season as the two sides went head-to-head in the Semi-Final of the National Cup. Despite two two tier difference, Breakers lost by just five points, and earned plenty of plaudits following their performance.
Hemel have enjoyed a successful start to their season having won all three of their KitKing Trophy Group Stage fixtures.
Seth Swalve has been the one to watch so far for Storm, he’s been averaging 23 points in the group stages. Storm’s Sam Newman has been named in back-to-back NBL Team of the Weeks – alongside Breakers’ very own Jordan Spencer.
If the fixture is anything like last year encounter, the fans in attendance can expect a high-quality game of Basketball.
We hope to see you Bletchley Leisure Centre this weekend!
