Shock start the New Year with a bang.

Not only did Swindon Shock welcome back former Point Guard Antonio Wilburn during the Christmas break.  But the team came out on fire and ready for business after a month long layoff.   Sharp shooting Chris Cole remained hot on the 3 point line knocking down his first 5 shots and 6 3pt shots in the game.  Alistair Tilney made his way back to the starting lineup with a a couple of strong training session that carried on into the game, as the young shooting guard had quick baskets and timely block shots to help push the team to a 18 to 2 run early into the second quarter.  In addition Ollie Swann saw valuable game time as his speed and power led to easy baskets and the young guard continues his growth at the national level.  Spencer Wells and Matt North followed up the game with dagger breaking shots in the second half that stole the will of Oxford and diminished any hopes of a comeback.  Junior player Ben Clark got in on the action midway in the 4th quarter and recorded a rebound and an assist to increase his own game experience.  Although it was a great victory for the team Shock are still dealing with a couple of injuries from Lee Hobbis (arm) and David Colclough (Ankle) that have limited and sidelined the players.  Shock will have a bye week, next week before welcoming Woking Black Hawks on the 28th at New College tip 2pm.
