London Lions v UMass @ Copperbox Arena London, 22/08/2015

Living and London and carrying Boston in my heart from my time there it was hard to decide who to support in this game. UMass is one of the top basketball teams in the NCAA having sent various players to the NBA in the last couple of years, with the most recent being Cady Lalanne who’s joined the San Antonio Spurs. The London Lions are currently raising the profile of league basketball in the UK. So it was somewhat a meet-up of giants (literally, also).

For most games the Copper Box arena is not quite that full, however the audience was buzzing for this one and the seats were almost all full. This was great to see for the team. Both teams were on-form but the skills on UMass were unmissable and unbeatable.
