Tonight was the Worcester Wolves basketball game. The Wolves are a professional team here playing in the BBL (the British Basketball League). Anyone who is in the UMD Study in England Programme got free tickets! It turned out to be an intense game! The Guildford Heat, which logo is exactly the same as the Miami Heat, went up in the first quarter but the teams battled back and forth through the entire game. It ended up going into over time, where the Wolves pulled through and won by six.
I noticed that the British do not love their basketball quite as much as the Americans. The play was not up to par with the NBA, or even the NCAA for that matter. They played music in the middle of play. Really the BBA is probably the equivalent of the MLS in the states, trying but just not quite there yet. Given some time I think the British will be able to play to par but it just isn't quite to our level yet... ;]
