Lunchtime Basketball CompetitionAfter three rounds the Celtics are narrowly leading the competition, with the Bulls just one point behind them on the points table. Hunter Brownlee (Warriors) from room 3 has the highest points-per-game average with 10.

This week's lunchtime basketball games are:

1:20pm = Chicago Bulls vs Boston Celtics
1:40pm = Golden State Warriors vs L.A. Lakers

If the weather is good, the games will be played on the turf. Otherwise, if wet, we will be playing in the gym.
