MK Breakers are back in action this Saturday evening as they welcome Ipswich Basketball Club to Bletchley Leisure Centre for their latest NBL Division 2 outing.
The Suffolk based outfit have endured a mixed start to the season winning one and losing two of their opening three games. Their season started with an impressive 89-68 win over London Stars before being defeated 98-68 by Westminster Warriors.
Ipswich Basketball Club then suffered their second defeat of the campaign at the hands of NASSA last Saturday. Despite the two defeats, Ipswich do enter this weekend’s clash as one of the most dangerous teams in NBL Division 2 and will look to cause trouble to Breakers. Ipswich placed third in the NBL Division 2 South table last season, missing out on top spot by just four points.
Breakers, meanwhile, have won two of their opening three games, whilst they have lost once in the league to Team Solent Kestrels.
Those in attendance at Bletchley Leisure Centre in last Saturday’s win over Cobham Cobras will be hoping for more of the same. The Breakers were impressive throughout their 94-73 win, with Head Coach Billy Beddow praising his sides performance.
“The last 20-minutes were great, we kept the focus on us and tried not to worry about the score. The main thing was, the team was playing with excitement, that’s the fun part of Basketball. We competed well and felt comfortable as a team and had big contributions from everyone. We earned the right to play Basketball that way through focus and achieving our goals.”
