BUCS (British Universities and Colleges Sport) fixtures returned on Wednesday 9 October and #TeamDMU were out in full force.

With eight home and seven away games, our DMUsport teams gave it their all to try to bring home a win in the anticipated first week of matches.

Table Tennis 

The day began with DMU Table Tennis Men’s 2nd team v University of Derby Men’s 2nd at The Watershed. It’s the first to nine points to win for Table Tennis and within 15 minutes #TeamDMU were already two points up.

The team played perfectly throughout and used a range smash and counter-hits to gather those all important points.

Their performance remained strong as DMU only allowed Derby to score one point, winning the match 16 – 1. It was a brilliant first BUCS victory for the season. 

Students can play table tennis with DMUactive weekly on Thursdays 6-7pm for free with your student card and all equipment is provided.

Basketball

The final home fixture of the day was Basketball Men’s 2nd team v University of Lincoln Men’s 2nd at the Morningside Arena.

The stands were roaring with support for the DMU Griffins which created an electric atmosphere in the arena.

The DMU Basketball 2nd team were on top form and dominated the game from the start. It was in the third quarter when the team showed their best performance, as #TeamDMU's defence was excellent and their offence was even better, increasing their score by 35 points and extending their lead.

The DMU Griffins played with determination and performed solidly throughout, finishing with an immense victory of 75 – 35.

DMU Basketball Coach, Igor Mirkovic said: "Considering we only had one training session yesterday with the team, it has been a demanding performance especially defensively".

"Offensively we were very solid, always moving a lot and every player got engaged."

"Overall a very solid performance from the team that I expect is going to deliver this season."
