BBP: Worcester Wolves 'Silverware is a realistic aim'

The Worcester Wolves have done some shrewd business since the end of the 2012/13 BBL season with signing of Leicester Riders' Zaire Taylor amongst the names joining the roster.

The Wolves will be hoping that they can build upon last season where they managed victories over the Newcastle Eagles and Leicester Riders in various competitions, finishing up the season the play-off quarter-finals.

Colin Taylor is the press officer for the team and he believes that the roster will be in a better position to compete.

He said: "We have a roster which is as good if not better than last season and we had injuries and the visa issue with Prezzie-Blue."

"Last season was a missed opportunity for the team and we couldn't do it when it mattered, it was an achievement to beat Leicester at their home and an achievement to get close to the Trophy final."

"We've raised the bar over the last few seasons, we're near the top of the table, we have a new arena and silverware is a realistic expectation."

Taylor was also looking forward to the rivalry the team have with the Leicester Riders who they face in their opening home game at the University Arena.

He continued: "The games I've gone to both home and away with Leicester have been sold out and we play them in our first home game, which could be the biggest game in the teams history."

"We arguably have the best backcourt in the BBL with Zaire Taylor and Alex Owumni, so it should be interesting."

"We are hoping we can get more production out of Zaire than he gave at Leicester and he was very productive at the Riders."

Colin Taylor also revealed a new signing in the form of Serbian/Portuguese star Stefan Djukic.

He added: "We are finalising the signing of a 6ft 7 forward who has played in Europe in the top division."

It means he faces Arsenal defender Rob Holding in the final.
Courtois discussed his passion for the NBA after the game: “I don’t really have a team. I know a few players at the Lakers and at the Knicks, so I like to follow the players I really know well. I’m very excited to see Joel Embiid and the Philadelphia 76ers in London for the NBA London Game 2018 for example, I think it will be a great game and hopefully they will win as well.”
Fosu-Mensah then concluded by sharing his excitement for the NBA London Game 2018, “I’ve always wanted to see an NBA game and the London Game is going to be my first one ever, so I’m really excited to go. It’s going to be a grea…
