Creekmore and Taylor in team of the week



First published in Sport

TWO of Worcester Wolves' star performers have once again found themselves in the British Basketball League team of the week.

Will Creekmore and Zaire Taylor have both been named in the elite quintet following their efforts in the 96-86 victory over Plymouth Raiders.

Centre Creekmore is making his 12th appearance in the team this season and is vying with Cheshire Phoenix's Victor Moses, who has also been included 12 times, for the honour of most selections, while fellow American Taylor is hot on their heels with nine appearances.

Creekmore scored 37 points against the Raiders and recorded a 70 per cent strike rate inside the paint by making 14 of his 20 attempts.

He was also clinical from the free-throw line and added seven boards and three assists to keep Wolves' title bid on track.

Taylor was successful with six of seven from inside the three-point line and converted three attempts from beyond the arc on his way to a 25-point haul.

Influential at both ends of the floor, he also came within a whisker of a double-double by dishing up nine assists, while defensively he snapped up a six steals.

Drew Sullivan (Leicester Riders) and James Jones (Manchester Giants) complete the line-up.
