HERIOT-WATT UNIVERSITY have captured both men’s and women’s basketball trophies at the Scottish Student Sport Conference Cup Finals at Dundee University.

The men scored a dramatic 65-64 win over Stirling University while the women pulled away after a close first half to beat Queen Margaret University 61-42.

Heriot-Watt men trailed Stirling throughout their fiercely-contested match and were 40-33 down at half-time.

But the Capital outfit fought back and gradually gained control, athough they were still one point behind as the clock ticked down.

Craig Malcolm, who also top-scored with 12 points, hit two successive jump-shots, the second to clinch victory.

Stirling captain Adam Hammerschmidt was top scorer with 23.
