Our very own Martin D’Mellow, is coaching the men’s basketball team at the Farnborough College of Technology again this season and the team recently took part in a 3-on-3 college tournament. Below is the report on their performance:
FCOT Basketball dominant in 3-on-3
Farnborough College of Technology’s basketball team got off to a flyer with success in their first competition of the new academic year.
Basingstoke’s Queen Mary’s College hosted the November 12th ‘IM Basketball 3-on-3 tournament’, with 9 teams from five colleges competing: Farnborough College of Technology (2), Queen Mary’s College of Basingstoke (2), Sparsholt College of Winchester (2), Peter Simonds 6th Form College of Winchester (2) and Basingstoke College of Technology (1).
All teams played each other once in a round-robin style league and in what turned out to be a recreational tournament, Farnborough’s teams were dominant with team 2 finishing 3rd with 5 wins and team 1 finishing as the undefeated champions with a 100% win record of 8 wins.
It was a great achievement from the teams who had only had two practice sessions since the squad was selected going into the half term break. Coach Martin D’Mellow said ‘The squad is strong this season. I am excited to be coaching this group and as a team we are looking forward to playing a few more games and competitions throughout this academic year’.
