IN-FORM Worcester Wolves ace Trevor Setty expects a physical challenge tomorrow night from sixth-placed London Lions at the University of Worcester Arena (7.30pm).

Paul James’ Wolves have won their last 11 matches and risen to third spot in the British Basketball League.

They are aiming for a third successive win against Lions after beating them 100-71 at the Copper Box and then 99-91 in Worcester.

But American forward Setty is aware of the threats posed by Lions, particularly from ex-Wolves favourites Alex Owumi, Zaire Taylor and Kai Williams.

Setty said: “Lions are a veteran team with a lot of height and team strength.

“They don’t really have an up-tempo team because they have big physical guards and athletic big men.

“Rashad Hassan is a really solid big man who works really hard and is great at establishing his position under the basket.

“Navid Niktash is a highly-skilled fourth position man who has a great touch on his jump shot.”

Setty top scored with 23 points against his former side Plymouth Raiders last Sunday with Trey Zeigler adding 18 off the bench in a 93-87 Wolves success.

“Lions can be a very dangerous team when everything is clicking,” said Setty.

“Owumi does a bit of everything and is a highly competitive and physical guard who can shoot from anywhere.

“Former most valuable player Taylor is a really big walk-it-up point guard with a great handle of the basketball, great at finishing and can score from anywhere on the court.

“Williams does a little bit of everything and can shoot threes from anywhere.”

Wolves’ league record shows 18 victories and 12 losses while Lions have achieved 16 victories and 13 losses.

If the table remains the same until the end of the season Wolves will face Lions at the first stage of the play-offs.
