Women’s Basketball get near a century in Varsity match


The Women’s Basketball team of the University of Kent put on a stunning show of speed, agility, co-ordination and teamwork to romp home against Canterbury Christ Church’s team in their Varsity match on Saturday 28 February. Natalie Tipping reports.

From tip-off, the Kent girls looked to be the dominant team, working well to spread play across every space of the court, and score some great opening baskets. Kent’s Stephanie Roworth was a force to be reckoned with throughout the match, with spectators near me beginning to assume that UKC would score as soon as she touched the ball.

The score was 10-18 UKC going into the second quarter, and the girls looked to continue to dominate the scoreline. The girls didn’t disappoint the away crowd, who caused quite a din in the CCCU Sports Hall when the first half ended 15-46 to UKC.

With such a huge deficit to make up, the CCCU team would have been forgiven for feeling a little deflated coming back on to the court for the third and fourth quarters, but they fought through to the bitter end. Everytime Christ Church made a good attacking play, however, Kent would get them on the counter-attack, and soon the score was sailing towards the century mark.

The final quarter saw many a nervous shot bounce off the rim or the backboard, as the Christ Church team tried to decrease the UKC lead. The UKC team could smell the 100 point barrier calling them. Due to the valiant efforts of the C4 side however, the Kent team couldn’t make it to that goal, and the match ended 32-86 to Kent – a massive win for the women’s team.
