Wolves Face the Cavaliers
Wolves face a tough test as they go in search of their victory of the season with a trip to Thames Valley Cavaliers on Saturday evening.
The Cavaliers were something of a bogey team for Wolves' predecessors, Leopards, as they won all eight meetings over the last three seasons. The Uxbridge-based side were promoted alongside Leopards in 2018, and have spent heavily in their two years in the top flight - a decision that was rewarded with the runners-up spot in Division One last season.
Their success has continued this season, winning the Oaklands-hosted group of the L Lynch Trophy thanks to Lewis Champion's massive three on the buzzer to give them a 86-83 win against Hemel Storm having beaten Wolves 102-74 in their opening game of the campaign. They have played only one league game, returning from Leicester Warriors with a 90-67 victory last week,
Wolves coach Thomas Baker is looking forward to his side's first away game of the season: "It's been a good week of practice," he said. "We have continued to grow as a unit and have taken positive steps towards the type of team we want to be.
"We know Thames Valley are going to be tough opposition having faced them already in the L Lynch Trophy, but we are looking forward to testing ourselves them."
