Big Cats look to slay Dragons

Leopards continue their fight for Division One survival on Saturday when they host Bradford Dragons at Oaklands College, tip-off 5.45pm.

The Dragons will arrive at Oaklands in eighth spot with six wins from 13 games and Leopards will be looking to avenge an 86-77 loss in Yorkshire back at the beginning of October in a game they should have won.

Chris Mellor’s team defeated Division Two North leaders Newcastle University 97-88 in the National Cup before losing 87-77 at home against the all-conquering Solent Kestrels. Leopards will be hoping for a repeat of last season’s results between the teams as they won 91-79 at home but went down 100-85 on the road. The game will Leopards up against point guard Albert Margai who helped them win the Division One title in 2015.
