The weekend preview

Updated: Jan 18

Wolves' senior men will continue their fight to remain in NBL Division Two South when they host NASSA on Saturday, tip-off 6pm.

Faith Karahan's team won their last outing against London Stars but saw last week's trip to Westminster Warriors postponed due to court problems, so they will want to continue their good start to 2023 against their east London opponents on Saturday evening.

Despite 17 points from La'Quaren Sayers, the hosts won 77-65 when the teams met at UEL SportsDock in October, and are currently chasing a play-off spot in fourth place with a 8-5 record.

Karahan will need another big game from Sayers if his side are to record their third league of the campaign but he'll also look to Callum Johnstone who scored 21 points in 20 minutes as Wolves academy lost a thriller 80-75 against Coppleston (Ipswich)on Wednesday.

Wolves II also return to action after a week off, travelling to Anglia Ruskin University on Saturday evening where they will look for revenge against a side who inflicted heavy home losses against them in both Division Three and the National Cup at the start of the season.

Due to the National Cup finals there is only a limited amount of junior games this weekend, and the U-14 girls will look to build on last week's 39-point win at Bristol Academy Flyers when they host Ipswich. Allison Day's team beat the Suffolk side in a pre-season tournament but went down 67-39 when tee sides met at Coppleston in October. The win in Bristol lifted Wolves off the bottom of the South Premier, and they face an Ipswich side who are one place above them in seventh spot.

Wolves U-16 girls will be after quickfire revenge at 2pm on Sunday as they host a Luton side who beat them 81-52 in Bedfordshire last week. That result lifted Luton up to fifth in the table with a 7-3 record while Wolves remain second from bottom with one win from ten games.

Wolves U-15 boys will also aim to bounce back after a heavy loss against Luton when they host Stevenage Royals at 4pm on Sunday afternoon. It will be another tough test for Sayers' team as they face a side who are fourth in the table with a 6-3 record.
