After winning six BBL games in succession, Worcester Wolves are a team searching for further success in the 2012 season, including the chance to get revenge over the Leicester Riders later this month.
At this stage, Worcester sit second in the BBL and with many important matches to come, they are currently enjoying a well earned break until their next fixture on the 24th March.
Since the narrow victory over Glasgow Rocks at the weekend, the players are remaining active though as they look to maintain their focus ahead of several fixtures in quick succession.
Press officer Colin Taylor revealed to bblfans.com: “Although a break may be well-deserved, these players thrive on staying active. Indeed quite a few of the players will be representing the University of Worcester in this weekend’s BUCS Championship in Sheffield.”
“This organisation is proud to have had strong links with UoW since day one of its existence, and the players are keen to uphold the fabulous record of the UoW.”
Worcester trail the Newcastle Eagles at the top of the BBL of course and even though many are looking forward to the clash with the league leaders on the 6th April, Taylor insists that the players aren’t looking that far ahead.
He continued: “There are several tough games ahead before we can even consider Newcastle. Sharks on 24 March – twice in Sheffield we’ve let them snatch the win in the dying seconds. Those two losses will be motivation enough for that one.”
“In Chester on 25 March – they’re still scrapping to make the playoffs so we can’t relax for that one.”
“30th March in Leicester – apart from playoff seedings, we definitely owe them. On the 28th December, the University was rammed. One of our biggest crowds for years and we were pummelled.”
“Our guys know what needs to happen on the 30th. Aside from having it written down somewhere that the Newcastle game is on 06 April, no one is looking beyond the next game.”
Next up for Worcester is a home game with the Sheffield Sharks on the 24th March.
