Tayo Ogedengbe was delighted to be back in action at Surrey Sports Park as the Scorchers All-Star select took on Bradley University.
The game came almost three months after Scorchers' 2017/18 season came to an end but the Scorchers captain was in good form.
Ogedengbe said: "It was good to get back out there on Home court, there few cob webs to shake off but nothing major."
With the Scorchers All-Star select containing some names from the past such as Martelle Mclemore and Michael Ochereobia, it took until the third quarter before they really got going.
"We had a good group of guys actually.
"Professionals and former players, but we had never played before so it was interesting at the start until we figured a few things outs."
While Scorchers couldn't quite get the win on the night, as Bradley saw out a 67-73 win, it was a good pre-season test for Ogedengbe.
"Bradley where great, very energetic, very high tempo and very well organised, I enjoyed the competition.
"Going into Pre-Season we are focused on getting the right guys together and working towards more success."
