WORCESTER Wolves could hardly have expected to win at Glasgow Rocks after a week of upheaval at the University of Worcester-based club.

Therefore the fact they lost the British League clash 111-59 was no surprise, but Wolves did not lose their fighting spirit.

With only Siman Stewart and Harry Disy having previously played substantial minutes at BBL level, it was an unusual starting five that took the court for Worcester.

Stewart and Disy were supported by Roy Owen and second team promotees Albert Ziwa and Eric Chesser.

While it was Ziwa who scored the first basket of the game with a neat lay up, this was to be the only time Wol-ves held the lead.

With the first quarter ending at 16-33 and the first- half finishing at 26-63, a heavy defeat looked likely.

When Rocks’ evergreen American guard Rob Yan-ders opened the second-half with consecutive long-range baskets, Wolves deficit increased still further. How-ever, the fast-improving Owen refused to lay down and notched nine points during the quarter.

Going into the last period at 43-94 down, stand-in coach Guy Evans ensured all of the young Wolves squad got time on court in recognition for having made the marathon bus ride north.

Some lively contributions meant that the final quarter was only lost by a single point.

Top scorers for Wolves were Stewart with 18 points and Disy with 15.
