In the second day of their Goodwill tour of China the Trinity Western University delegation and men’s basketball team had the opportunity to visit and tour Wuhan, China as well as play their first match of the tour against Wuhan University of Technology.
TWU opened game action with a surreal game against the Wuhan University of Technology. In front of a boisterous crowd the Spartans defeated Wuhan 95-94 on a last second basket by TWU forward Anthony Ottley.
“It was a good crowd and a great atmosphere to play in,” commented TWU head coach Scott Allen. “We didn’t do a good job of closing out and making them take tough shots, but we battled against the odds and found a way to get the win.”
During the day the TWU delegation meet traveled to JJL in Wuhan to meet with dignitaries of the company. The delegation then traveled to the government offices to kick off the Visiting Teachers program in Wuhan.
Prior to the game TWU was hosted by the Vice Mayor of the City of Wuhan on a beautiful boat tour of East Lake in Wuhan.
The men’s basketball team and the TWU delegation will now travel to Beijing to continue their Goodwill Tour.
