BUCS South Eastern 1A: UEL 36 Hertfordshire 69

UEL women’s basketball fought hard against Hertfordshire University, but ultimately fell at the SportsDock.

UEL opened the scoring before Herts scored six quick points, but the hosts hit a three to draw within one.

Herts led at the end of the first quarter, but with the score just 14-9, UEL were still very much in the match.
