Schoolboys flog sorry Patriots

This time schoolboys were the ones teaching lessons, having welcomed Vyb Patriots back to basketball’s top flight with a 68-46 flogging in Saturday’s Co-operators General Insurance knockout opening round at the Wildey Gymnasium.

It wasn’t quite the return they were hoping for after languishing in the lower divisions since last playing Premier League in 2011.

But not much seems to have changed in that span, as the Husbands men slumped to yet another loss in the top flight while fielding just six players on the night.

Yet that short-handed squad was competitive for most of the first half, leading by as many as seven points (22-15) on a couple of Shawn Ifill treys before holding a slim 27-26 cushion at the break.
