WARWICKSHIRE Bears head coach Tom Masterson was full of praise for Ben Baugh who scored no fewer than 28 points as his side beat Aces 54-22 in the Second Division South.

With a number of their first team missing due to injury and work, this could have been a tricky game against an experienced Aces team who had former Great Britain captain Andy Blake in their lineup.

The Bears were however bolstered with the inclusion of some squad players who came in and kept their impressive run going.

After started the match strongly in defence by forcing the Aces to turn over possession frequently, the Bears were able to build an 18-6 lead by the end if the first quarter and by the second that had stretched to 20 points.

The visitors rotated their line-up in the third quarter and allowed their opponents few opportunities as they built up a 42-14 lead and as more players earned valuable playing minutes, the Bears close the match comfortably in the final period.

“That’s another win in the bag and another good performance,” said coach Masterson.

“I was really proud of the players who came in for our absentees and showed how much they have come on this season.

“I have to give a special mention to our NOV today, Ben Baugh who was awesome at both ends of the court leading in both offensive and defensive rebounds and taking advantage on offence.”

The Bears are next in action when the club’s second team take on Cornwall Cougars and Plymouth in the same weekend om April 1 and 2.
