BLUES VS CHICHESTER (72-33)
NOTTINGHAM VS BLUES
BLUES VS NOTTINGHAM TRENT (47-45)
By Cristina Gómez
The Cambridge Blues take another win in what could potentially be a season-defining game. Thebasketball women faced league leaders Nottingham Trent on Wednesday and fought to the end in anail biting game that finally saw them come out on top 47-45.
Knowing that Nottingham Trent had won both their games against the Blues' long term rivals Worcester and Nottingham, the Cambridge women had a shaky start to the match. An unprecedented number of turnovers in offence meant that they were unable to reach the basket, while the guests took advantage of these mistakes and punished the Blues. However, strong defenceallowed Cambridge to maintain the score low and saved them from what could have been a trulydisastrous first quarter. Thus, the first 10 minutes ended with a historic low score of 7-14 for Nottingham Trent.
