HEAD coach Paul James heralded the energy levels of his Worcester Wolves players as they won for the first time in 2013.

After trailing for much of Sunday’s British Basketball League contest at Durham Wildcats, Wolves stepped on the gas in the closing stages to run out 98-91 winners in the north east.

Having seen last Friday’s home match postponed because opponents London Lions could not get to the University of Worcester due to the weather, it was Wolves’ first match since losing to Leicester Riders on January 5.

James said: “This was a hard-fought win. Durham shot the lights out early on and we looked like we had not played in a while.

“However we regrouped at half-time, changed a few things and played with a lot more energy at both ends of the floor.

“This was always going to be a tricky game, but we came through it as a team.”

Wolves are back in action on Friday when they host Surrey Heat (7.30pm) in what will be their first home fixture of the new year following the Lions cancellation.
