Cambridge men’s basketball team claimed a 79-65 win over Worcester 2nds at the University Sports Centre on Wednesday afternoon.

The match started fairly even between the two teams, but Cambridge pulled ahead to take a 21-12 lead at the end of the first quarter. The hosts extended their lead in the second quarter, leading 42-29 at the halfway mark.

The third quarter started slowly, with neither team scoring, but the match burst into life midway through as Cambridge dominated proceedings. Going into the final quarter, the home side were in a comfortable position with a 62-37 lead. They maintained their advantage at the start of the quarter but in the final five minutes, Worcester started to press and fought back to close the gap to only 9 points.

However, it was too little, too late and Cambridge held out to claim a 79-65 victory in their third BUCS League match of the year.
