Season Preview: Worcester Wolves

Wolves head coach Paul James has recruited a new look side for the new campaign.

Wolves head coach Paul James has recruited a new look side for the new campaign.

The point guard spot was the most important spot that needed filling and jams turned to former worthing thunder player Sherrad Prezzie Blue to run the offence. The 24 year-old started out in EBL division 2 and quickly gained a reputation as one of the most clinical scorers in the league, averaging 27 points a game. US College Graduate Ritchie Gordon fills the vacant centre spot after Justin Dobbins departure to Sheffield.

The wolves have also snapped up NCAA division one shooting guard Tommy freeman from Ohio. He averaged 22 points a game for his college team whilst making a third of those shots from beyond the three-point line.

Coach James Lithuanian connections allowed him to bring Arnas Kazlauskas to the squad. As well as signing European experience from Spain and the east, the wolves welcome back Callum Jones who had a good run out last year. But With all these new additions can the wolves mould to achieve an assault on the playoff places?

Roster:

Coach: Paul James

One to watch: Ritchie Gordon certainly has big shoes to fill with the void left by Justin Dobbins. But with his numbers that should be no problem. The 6’9” Gordon played at Western Carolina University where he averaged 10 points and six rebounds a game, including a 23-point, ten rebound double double in the hammering of Warren Wilson early last season.

Arnas Kazlauskas – Centre
Tommy Freeman -Guard
Sherrad Prezzie Blue – Point Guard
David Watts – Forward
Callum Jones – Guard
Alex Zimnickas – Forward
Carlos Fernandez – Forward

Full roster TBA soon
