Oscar Turner plays for Newham Youngbloods who won the South Premier Division and then fought their way against teams from all over the country to reach the Final Fours tournament in Sheffield.
There, they beat home side Sheffield Junior Saints 87-75 in the semi-final to set up a final with Manchester Magic.
The Newham side were three points ahead with three minutes to go in the final.
However, a late surge from a strong Magic team saw them take the winners’ medal with a 77-68 triumph.
