Demi helps Manchester Magic retain title
We firmly believe that with the right people around us we are capable of achieving anything. This was demonstrated perfectly on January 20th as Year 11’s Demi led his Manchester Magic basketball team to back-to-back U16 Sure Shot National Cup titles.
Demi, who amassed 24 rebounds, 20 points, two assists and five steals in the final match against Bristol Academy Flyers, was awarded MPV (Most Valuable Player) and celebrated by Magic’s head coach Tom Paraskeva, in what was a fantastic whole team performance.
“Demi worked really hard and played for the team. It’s about the team, couldn’t be more proud of the guys. We had multiple 20-point scorers, multiple people on the boards and it’s all the little things, Henry was amazing just rebounding, Nathan with his gap defence. A whole team performance.” said Tom.
The victory takes Manchester Magic’s tally to 12 U16 National Cup titles, the most in the competition’s history.
