WORCESTER Wolves will hope to keep their title dreams alive with victory over Glasgow Rocks tomorrow night (Saturday tip-off 7pm).

Paul James’ side, who guaranteed themselves a BBL play-off spot last weekend, will hope to push even closer to current leaders Newcastle Eagles with victory over their Scottish opponents at the University of Worcester.

Both teams go into the match in fine form with Wolves on the hunt for their sixth win on the bounce and Glasgow Rocks having won their last three games.

A win would put Wolves on 36 points which would equal their best ever points tally in a single BBL season.

Worcester have already beaten the Rocks their two previous league encounters this season as well as having the better of them in the BBL Cup.

But Wolves head coach Paul James has warned his team Glasgow have the squad to beat any side on their day.

“The Rocks play hard at both ends of the court and on their day can score the ball as well as any team in the league,” he said.

“Last time we played them we just focused on making sure that we were all on the same page defensively and that we executed our sets properly on offence.”
