Wolves chasing fourth Giants win



First published in Sport

WORCESTER Wolves are aiming for a fourth victory of the season over Manchester Giants tomorrow (5pm).

Paul James' side, who hosted Durham Wildcats last night, head up the M6 aiming to keep their British Basketball League title hopes alive.

The teams have met three times so far this term with Wolves emerging triumphant on each occasion, twice in the league and once in the BBL Cup.

Worcester won 88-66 in the Cup in October and 118-102 in November, both at the University Arena, before winning 95-80 in Manchester in January.

The Giants are ninth in he table but still in the hunt for a top-eight play-off place.

"Manchester have played some great games without getting the rewards," Wolves director of basketball James said. "They are very skilled with scorers in every area, so we will have to match them all over the court."

Giants coach Jeff Jones added: "We have been in play-off mode since the loss at Surrey United and, when the players were challenged, I have to say they have responded really well.

"We just have to continue what we are doing and playing for each other along the lines we have in the last five or six games."
