Our Senior men played last Friday against Total League opponent Walferdange. In the first quarter, energy an rhythm were missing completely to our team and Walferdange led 24-12. In the second quarter, great energetic team basketball brought us back in the game and it was a tie game at halftime (35-35). At the end, Sparta wins 75-73 (without their pro players) and it was the next step forward in the preparation for the season. Next weekend, Sparta will play 2 test games in the Netherlands (Rotterdam); new professional player Aundrey Jackson arrived yesterday in Bertrange and can join the team now.
