Baker happy despite loss

Despite seeing his side go down 86-77 at Bradford Dragons, Leopards’ coach Thomas Baker believes they are making progress:
“This was our best game of the year so far” he said. “We came out the blocks and really committed to our style and we reaped the rewards too.
“We rode their comeback and managed to enter the half still ahead. What hurt us was a lack of discipline down the stretch and we became tight in the decisions we made, they showed their experience and closed the game out.
“Now we are in basketball games and we are making things more competitive we will learn from what happened in this one and be better for it.”
Leopards had only trailed by a single point going into the final five minutes but were outscored 12-4 down the stretch as the home team collected their first win of the campaign.
