Preview: Bristol Flyers v USA Select

Bristol Flyers v USA Select
Pre-season exhibition game
Thursday, September 9th (7.30pm)
Tickets available on the door, avoid disappointment by buying in advance online

Supporters have the chance to see Flyers’ new signings in action for the first time this Thursday (7.30pm) as USA Select are the visitors to the WISE Arena.

A brief guide to the travelling team from the USA can be found below.

USA SELECT

USA Select are regular visitors to Bristol, having faced Flyers in several pre-season exhibition games over the past few years. USA will offer Flyers a highly competitive game as 45 players from stateside aim to earn a contract in Europe. Sean Kilmartin and his fellow coaches will be presiding over three separate sides as their squad face the tricky task of playing around 50 games in the space of an 18-day period.

FORM

Current BBL League Champions Leicester Riders proved too strong for Select this weekend, claiming a pair of comfortable victories over the side from the USA, 94-55 and 98-74. Tiredness appeared to be a factor in these games for USA – the opening quarters being tight affairs before Riders pulled away in the second-half of each game. There were no such issues however when the team from the States faced Manchester Giants, the visiting side running out 69-76 winners at the Trafford Sportsdome.

TICKETS

Tickets will be available on the door on Thursday night, but to be sure of a seat and avoid disappointment book online now.
