The Wolves first steps towards the British Basketball League Trophy have been bold and encouraging. However, as games have continued to come along, so too has some fierce competition! In the Worcester Wolves game against Sheffield Sharks, they put in an excellent performance – with Javier Mugica leading the way on points. But the Sharks held onto their lead for the majority of the game which ended with a disappointing score of Sheffield Sharks 85, Worcester Wolves 75.
