Our Team Solent men’s 1st basketball team has become the first Solent team to win a British Universities and Colleges Sport (BUCS) premier league title.

After beating the University of East London earlier this month 97-71, the team won all ten matches they played. They will now move to the BUCS Super 8s Championship Knockout, where they are likely to face Manchester University at home in the quarter finals on Thursday 8 March.

The team celebrated their win with coach Sylvain Donneaud

Head Coach Sylvain Donneaud says: “At last, we’ve managed to win the BUCS Premier League after several years of hard work!

“I’m so proud of my players and the way they’ve stuck together and performed week in, week out. Now we concentrate on the Super 8s, where we hope to go one better than last year.”
