A thousand LED lights are floated on the river Wensum from St Georges Bridge, Norwich to Fye bridge in support of people who are, and who have been affected by cancer. People living in Norwich estates "plagued" by problems with drugs and anti-social behaviour have been urged to "reclaim the streets". Norfolk Police and Norwich City Council organised a meeting for those living around Heigham Grove and areas around Old Palace Road to respond to community concerns. "We can tackle it indirectly by making the area better," said Kate Price, neighbourhoods and community enabling manager at Norwich City Council. Ten-year head coach Josh Bennett has to with this Norwich squad as they play a hard-nosed, in-your-face, full-court pressing defense.
In most games this season, teams that have faced Norwich are dog-tired by the time they get through the first quarter. Norwich has put up 70 or more on the scoreboard in six different games this season and have been held to less than 50 points in just two games of the 22 they have played. Often times, when teams start to figure out they Norwich can penetrate their defense and make the necessary adjustments, the Tornado shooters come alive from beyond the 3-point arc. "I think the thought process is that we have two really good guards that really get downhill well and attack the rim well and teams think the if 'we play zone, they aren't going to beat us to the rim off the dribble on every possession,'" said Bennett. Many people have been saying it is all in the offensive attack for Norwich, as they have been putting up big numbers all season long. "I'm 100-percent on board with the reason that we have been able to score so many points this year is because of what we have done on defense," said Bennett.
