Adam Robinson’s Under-16 Boys won a tense away game against Northants Titans 104-103 to move to the next round of the National Cup.

In a scrappy affair with a lot of foul shots from both sides, Ipswich held their nerve to secure the victory. Ethan Price, on the back of a 40-point performance last week, once again dominated leading the team in scoring with a massive 57-point outing while Jacob Morgan added 16 and Ahmeed Yusoof 15.
 
The Under-18 Boys also sealed an important away win at Bucks Hornets behind big performances from Ben Winter, Price and Troy Huggins. After scoring 12 points early on, Winter was lost to a shoulder injury, but Ipswich took a 15-point lead into the break and maintained that lead through the second half behind 15 points from Blake Read.

Syd Payne and the Under-14 Boys suffered a tough one-possession home defeat to Milton Keynes in overtime. A turnover in the final minute left the home side needing a score to extend the game but Ipswich came up empty on their final possession.
