NTU in action against Southwark earlier this season

Saturday sees NTU visit Bristol in hopes of bouncing back after last weekend’s defeat at the hands of Worcester.

NTU has had a mixed season thus far, both winning three and losing three games at this point and will be hoping to get their fourth win against a slightly unquantified team in Bristol.

Bristol has lost every game this season but has only played twice whilst a lot of other teams have played six times.

This means that there will not be a huge amount of scouting information out there about their opponents and two games is simply not a large enough sample size with which to judge Bristol.

NTU has enjoyed recent success, slightly marred by defeat at Worcester but even in this game, there were positives to take.

The result was close with just five points separating them and there was another stand-out performance from Mady Burdett who starred against Reading previously.

Both Burdett and forward Isabel Bueriberi feature in the top ten for efficiency from beyond the arc in the league, whilst Burdett and point guard Brahe Ashton feature on the assists leaderboard.

Captain Vicky Gray will go into the game with impressive statistics across the court with 14 points, six rebounds and three assists per game.

With Bristol’s poor start to the season and lack of game time, NTU will be aiming to take advantage and get back into form.
