Sussex Womens' Basketball - The Road to Varsity

Basketball

We headed down to watch Sussex’s Women’s Basketball 1st team at Sussex Sports Centre, as they put Portsmouth’s 1st team to the sword in an 82 - 37 win.

After a proficient display, we caught up with Stella, team captain, who spoke about the league, Varsity, and Sussex’s chances for their big fixture in March.

“Varsity is probably one of the most fun and exciting events of the year. I’m sad that it’ll be my last year competing, and proud that Sussex has never lost Varsity during my time as a player here”.

“Unfortunately we lost last time (despite Sussex winning overall), but we fancy our chances to show them (Brighton) we can win this year on home turf”

Stella went on to talk about the relative situations of both teams.

“Brighton are in the division above but are struggling (at the time of writing) whilst we’re doing reasonably well in the division below. When Varsity comes around we’ll give 100% and leave everything on the court. If we do that I think we can come out on top.”

Varsity kicks off on March 19th, with multiple sports fixtures played across campus as Sussex fight to win for a potential 4th successive year. You can follow all the action as the games take place using the hashtag #teamsussex on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook.

 

Come on Sussex!
