Sam pleased with weekend’s work

Leopards’ captain Sam Newman was pleased with his side’s pair of wins as they moved up the NBL Division One table
Newman dropped an incredible 13 assists to go with 19 points, five rebounds and four steals in Saturday’s 24 point victory at Manchester Magic and then added another eight dimes and 16 points as the Big Cats completed a four game sweep of Reading Rockets with a 93-78 win.
“This weekend was a chance to solidify our push for the playoffs and separate ourselves from the lower section of the league and we did just that” said Newman.
“Two wins dictated by how well we performed as a team and executed our game plans. But as the weekend draws to a close we turn our focus to Hemel who we already know are capable of putting wins up against anyone in this league.”
