Preview: Basketball Returns To Bristol

Bristol Flyers v USA Select
Pre-season friendly
SGS WISE Arena
Thursday, September 10th, 7.30pm

Tickets available to purchase on the door

The players have been put through their paces and the sneakers dusted off as basketball returns to Bristol this Thursday night. USA Select are the visitors to SGS WISE for Bristol Flyers' first game of the season.

Flyers will be hoping to follow up last season's comfortable 79-65 victory over USA Select with another win to set them up for their second season in the BBL.

USA Select feature a roster of former college players from the states, making this fixture a unique opportunity to see some top talent from across the Atlantic.

The game will also be the first chance to see Flyers two new signings, Daniel Edozie and Cardell McFarland, in action.

The Bristol basketball side are looking to build on a hugely impressive debut season in the BBL, having become the first side since 2008 to qualify for the play-offs at the first attempt.

Head Coach Andreas Kapoulas was duly rewarded for leading the Flyers into the play-offs, being named Molten BBL Coach of the Year.

See Coach K and his charges in action for the first time this season as Bristol Flyers take on USA Select at SGS WISE this Thursday, September 10th at 7.30pm - tickets are available to purchase on the door.
