London Stars 58 (9, 24, 35, 58)
Milton Keynes Breakers 123 (34, 68, 92, 123)
Milton Keynes Breakers continued their strong form with a 58-123 win over London Stars on Saturday afternoon.
A new look starting five for Coach Beddow-Patel’s side would see Nate Robinson and academy player William Issekya make their first starts of the season. The Breakers got off to a flying start, racing out to an 11-2 lead on the back of some hot shooting, forcing the Stars to call an early timeout.
The Stars’ timeout would not have the desired effect, as the Breakers continued to score freely in the first period. Chris Tawiah punched a fast break dunk on the first quarter buzzer to put the Breakers up 9-34 after 10 minutes.
It was more of the same in the second quarter as the travelling Breakers maintained their defensive intensity, whilst matching their first quarter scoring output to lead 24-68 at half time. Jordan Spencer and Nate Robinson connected on the play of the game with an alley-oop in transition which brought the travelling Breakers fans to their feet.
With the game all but decided by half-time, Coach Beddow-Patel used the second half to rotate the bench, with 11 players making the scoresheet and all players gaining valuable court time.
Jordan Spencer led the Breakers in scoring with 24 points, well supported by Dante Langley (22), Blayne Freckleton (20), Nate Robinson (17) and William Issekya (11) who all hit double figures in a balanced scoring effort.
The Breakers return to action at Bletchley Leisure Centre this coming Saturday as we host Westminster Warriors on Saturday 10th February, 5pm tip off. Tickets available here.
