The Sky TV cameras will be at the MK Basketball Centre on Tuesday night for the first live televised game of the season when the home-town Lions host Worcester Wolves in the BBL Championship. Coverage begins at 7PM on Sky Sports 3.
Lions’ coach Mike New is excited to be on TV, but knows his side face a tough test against the high-flying Wolves:
“It’s great to be back on Sky and live games are even more exciting. We need to produce a win and my guys really need to step up now.
“Wolves are playing the best basketball in the league at the moment. Richie Gordon, Sherrad Prezzie-Blue and Tommy Freeman have been solid for them, and provide a strong nucleus to play around and lead from different areas of the floor.”
Paul James, the Wolves coach is expecting a difficult game when his team make the trip to Milton Keynes: “I have not had a chance to see the Lions as yet but they look to have a lot of scoring talent. They have almost six players averaging double points and that will make them tough to beat. Demarius Bolds is a real scoring machine and new players to the BBL, Daniel Northern and Howard Crawford, are going well also.
“It’s really exciting to be back on Sky Sports and this being the first live game of the season adds even more excitement.”
