Sure-footed college basketball players are on top form after being crowned national champs.

Myerscough College’s Under-18 team have won the National Basketball League (NBL) Under-18 Cup.

They claimed their latest silverware after defeating London Thunder Lewisham 68-55 in the final staged the Hertfordshire Sports Village in Hatfield.

Myerscough’s Zion Tordoff was named Most Value Player (MVP) after finishing with 20 points and nine rebounds in the win.

Team-mate Konrad Kantorski also reached double figures with 15 points.

Head coach Mike Bernard said: “We’ve got some very talented guys, but the way we controlled the game is what counted for us.

“This is massive for me as a coach. I’ve won championships as a player but this is my biggest accomplishment as a coach. I’ve only been at Myerscough for two years and this is a great feeling.”
