WORCESTER Wolves secured a BBL Playoff place for just the second time in their history after another superb win on the road against Guildford Heat.
Sherrad Prezzie-Blue top-scored with 23 points as Wolves' recored their fifth consecutive victory on Sunday and kept the pressure on BBL Championship leaders Newcastle Eagles with a comfortable 100-78 win.
The victory moved second placed Wolves to just two points behind Newcastle in the table on 34 points.
With a huge 22 point gap between them and ninth placed Cheshire Jets, the win guaranteed Paul James' side a place in the end of season playoff competition.
Despite playing the Jets less than 24 hours before, the Wolves squad showed no signs of tiredness at Surrey Sports Park.
Guildford went into the game with a spring in their step after a good run of results saw them climb the table and be in with a chance of making the end of season play offs. But Wolves proved far too strong for their London based opponents.
After a tight start, Wolves' Lithuanian star Arnas Kaslauskas kicked his team into gear with back-to-back three pointers to give Worcester a seven point lead at the end of the first quarter.
Baskets from David Watts extended their lead in the second period as they looked to gain full control of the match.
Trailing 40-26 the hosts were given some hope when an ambitious basket from Martelle McLemore found the target just before half time.
But Wolves refused to let the basket affect their game and scored the first six points of the second game to put the game out of reach for Guildford.
Paul James' side scored steadily throughout the rest of the second half.
Club captain Callum Jones revelled in the absence of Spanish forward Carlos Fernandez and wrapped up another impressive win with a basket at the final whistle to mark 100 points for Wolves.
