WBBL: Game Preview

Wolves' WBBL team will be looking for revenge when they host Essex Rebels on Saturday afternoon.


The sides met at Essex Sports Arena earlier this month, and it came down to the dying seconds before Rebels snatched a 74-72 victory - and Wolves coach Lee Ryan knows what his side have to do to take the WBBL Championship points on Saturday afternoon:

"Last time we faced Essex it came down to the last plays of the game to separate us" he said. "They have continued to play with belief and quality so we will have to be at our best to get a result.

"We are looking for an improved defensive performance this Saturday, holding their free scoring players below their averages will be key for us to get the win."


Rebels are enjoying their most successful WBBL season, going into the game having won five of their last six games and are third in the table with an 8-3 record. Lucrezia Costa led Rebels with 20 points when the teams met, and heads into the weekend averaging an 11.9 points, 10.3 rebound double-double while Andrea Kohlhaas leads them 15.8 points per game and adds 6.5 boards.


Wolves go into the game on the back of a 69-64 win in Durham last weekend with Greeta Uprus leading them with 18 points and six boards, and she is averaging 13 points and 5.4 rebounds per game. Meanwhile Lauren Milligan's 7.6 rebounds and 2.3 steals leads the team, and she is also second in team assists with 2.3 per game.
