WE are now one third of the way through the season and I am delighted with how Worcester Wolves are performing.

The team sits second in the British Basketball League, looking good for a top-four position and haven’t lost too many games.

I am really pleased with the situation because I think there’s still plenty more to come from this team and certain individuals who maybe aren’t performing to what I would expect when I first signed them.

We’ve had some issues and are still looking to bring in a replacement for Donatas Visockis, so to be in the position we are I think is tremendous.

While we’re winning, we’re a happy camp and are continuing to work on those other things to make sure people are firing on all cylinders.

It is fantastic to still be second in the league at this stage of the season.

We’ve got a lot of games before Christmas and new year, starting with Manchester Giants at home tomorrow — and all that could change but hopefully we’re of the mentality now that every game is a Championship-winning game.

We’ve got to play matches as though that were the case because we don’t want to slip back any more on leaders Newcastle Eagles.

We have lost league games against Manchester and Glasgow Rocks and I think that has been down to our lack of discipline, which is disappointing because they were very winnable games.

As a team we try to make the most of the talent we have and try to put players in positions where they can succeed and be successful. I think we do a great job of doing that, especially with Robert Thurman by finding him with the ball close to the basket where he can be very explosive.

Jamal Williams had a tremendous game in the 95-88 victory at Plymouth Raiders, his former club, and Chavis Holmes is going from strength to strength.

Last year we had three key players in Zaire Taylor, Will Creekmore and Alex Owumi but this year I think there are six, seven or eight who can all be those key players on any given night.

Against Plymouth, it was Robert, Chavis and Jamal who did an excellent job for the team. This year we have got as equally a strong a bench if not better.

I was also pleased to see that we had learned our lesson from the week before against Glasgow by out-scoring Plymouth in the last five minutes. I was delighted with that. It was one of those games when we started well and seemed to be in control of the situation and then Plymouth got back at us.

They are a tough team at home and of late they have been more competitive but the important thing is we executed down the stretch and came away with two good points.
