In the coming weeks, Uni’s subbie boys’ basketball team will be practicing for the upcoming season in Uni Gym. This year’s boys’ basketball team consists of fourteen subbies, guided by a coach that is yet to be announced. Uni’s no-cut policy when it comes to sports has been very effective in garnering motivated basketball players. 

The general outlook is positive, with a dash of nervousness thrown in. While some have played basketball at previous schools, others are joining because of the no cut policy. Ivan Favila, a player with no previous experience, says that although he is anxious, he is glad to be able to play around his friends.

Despite different backgrounds and levels of experience, they are united in the common mindset of playing to have fun and form relationships. For some players, their motive exceeds beyond basketball. Ethan Mok-Chih hopes to gain confidence and have an opportunity to become involved in the Uni community. With a team of motivated and optimistic players, we can look forward to a great season (starting October 16th).

Good luck subbie boys!

    I’ve been playing on the subbie girls basketball team for about 6 weeks now and as far as I know there hasn’t been any mention of us in the Gargoyle. If you were looking for an article on subbie sports, why would you write about a team that hasn’t even started yet when the girls team gets better and better with each game? We’ve been working hard and deserve a mention, especially over a team that hasn’t even had a practice yet.

    Great article! The 17-18 season overall was a great experience and lots of fun, although in the end there were only 12 players left. The entire team improved immensely over the course of the season and it was truly a pleasure being part of such an inspiring team. That being said, I’ll really miss playing basketball next year. Congratulations everyone for a great year and have a great summer!
