The Soho Wealth SBC Senior Men’s Division One returned with three action-packed games on opening weekend.
basketballscotland’s Game of the Week saw Sony Centre Fury and St Mirren push each other all the way on Friday night, with the home side eventually claiming an 85-81 win. Fury’s Makaleb McInnes recorded a game high 31 points, whilst Nick Collins registered a team high 20 points for the visitors.
Sony Centre Fury’s Head Coach, John Bunyan, gave his thoughts to basketballscotland after the game:
Elsewhere in the division, Dunfermline Reign began their season with a 72-65 win over Edinburgh Lions on Saturday afternoon. There was additional reasons to celebrate for the 2018/19 champions, as two homegrown players made their senior debuts during the win.
It was a tough start to life in Soho Wealth SBC Division One for Perth Phoenix, as the promoted side lost 88-67 on the road to City of Edinburgh on Friday night. Kings’ Finlay Wood made the headlines in the tie, recording eight three-pointers in the first half.
The results over the weekend mean City of Edinburgh Kings top the table after week one. The full table can be found here.
