HEAD coach Ty Shaw admits he is still trying to get his players to all be “on the same page” as Worcester Wolves’ struggle for form and a settled team continues.

Cheshire Phoenix condemned Wolves to their 11th straight British Basketball League defeat with a 88-78 triumph at the University of Worcester Arena last Friday.

Their sorry run leaves them at the foot of the table, eight points adrift of the coveted top eight.

But Shaw has been hit by a series of injuries and changes in personnel with centre Lester Prosper the latest to make his debut and guard Miki Servera returning from a three-week lay-off.

“We are still in the process of trying to get guys on the same page as we have them going out, coming in, going out, coming in and now we have got Lester arriving,” Shaw said.

“It would be nice to have a set roster for a little bit. We missed Miki for three weeks so it was good to have him back and he did a great job.

“He came back and had 12 points and eight assists so his impact on the game was obviously more than visible.”

Shaw also felt Prosper made a difference in his 16-minute outing but was unhappy with Wolves’ defensive display against Cheshire.

“He got 13 points and five rebounds which was a pretty good effort for a guy who has been here for a little bit but hasn’t been in a game situation with us,” Shaw said.

“He just solidifies us inside which will hopefully be a strength going forward.

“But it is something we are going to have to work on because even with the big bodies we have got now allowing CJ Gettys to have 11 offensive rebounds is just unforgivable for a defensive rebounding team.

“It doesn’t matter how big we are we have got to make sure we are hitting bodies, boxing out and doing our job to secure good defensive positions.”

Shaw added he had no injury concerns ahead of Wolves’ trip to Glasgow Rocks in the first round of the BBL Trophy on Friday night (7.30pm).
