Chuck ready for play-off push

Forward Chuck Duru believes that a battling performance at Hemel Storm on Sunday can pave the way for Leopards to launch a run at the play-offs.
The Big Cats suffered a heart-breaking 96-95 loss at Storm, but it was a much better display than the 41-point loss at Division One leaders Solent Kestrels the previous day as Duru acknowledged:
“I think we had a lot of positives to take away from the game against Hemel, especially off the back of the poor showing against Solent the night before” he said.
“We battled hard against a talented and experienced team and aside from the poor start in the third quarter, many would agree we were the better team for the majority of the contest.
“Credit to Hemel as they made big shots down the stretch which ultimately was the difference. We can now turn our focus to the league and improving our position and making a push for a top eight finish.”
