Winning weekend kick starts March!  

Preston, England – Myerscough overcame a poor start that saw them trail by as many as 10 points in the opening quarter to improve to seven wins on the season as they beat Leicester Warriors, 82-74.  

Leicester enjoyed the better of the opening quarter as Myerscough went scoreless across the opening five minutes and then struggled to stop their opponents from scoring inside the paint as they trailed, 15-24.  

Myerscough used a 7-0 burst to cut the deficit back to just a single possession and remained within touching distance for the rest of the first half as the gap was cut to, 37-42.  

Both teams went back-and-forth to start the second half before Myerscough’s defense turned up a notch and held the visitors to just 3 points in the last 5-minutes of the third quarter as momentum swung and Myerscough took the lead heading into the final quarter, 60-56.  

Leicester enjoyed the better of the opening exchanges and even retook the lead before Myerscough exploded for an 18-4 run across the middle of the quarter that seemingly broke the game open and left too much for Leicester to recover.   

Peter Asante flirted with a triple-double as he had a game-high 23 points to go with 9 rebounds and 7 assists. Dayvantia Campbell-Deeble provided a spark off the bench with 16 points on a perfect 7-7 FG whilst Stephen Asante also flirted with a triple-double with 14 points, 12 rebounds and 9 assists.  

Elhji Toure Jabby had a double-double of 19 points and 15 rebounds to lead Leicester Warriors. Leon Henry closely followed with 17 whilst Chris Yapo had a double-double of his own with 16 points and 11 rebounds. Matthew Ward-Hibbert rounded out the scoring with 10.  

Despite Myerscough struggling from the perimeter (4/39 3PT), they were able to have a season high 27 assists on 34 made field goals and connect on 76% of their free throws (10/13) to close out the home victory.   

Myerscough (7-11) travel to Bristol Hurricanes (11-7) this coming weekend as they look to overturn the previous 52-73 loss that came before the Christmas break.
