Trailblazers in town on Saturday

Leopards return to Essex Arena in Colchester on Saturday evening when they host Derby Trailblazers, tip-off 6pm.
The game is part of a double-header with Essex Rebels facing WBBL powerhouse Leicester Riders at 3.30pm.
Trailblazers have made a perfect start to the league season with wins at Reading Rockets and Team Newcastle before ending Bradford Dragons’ great start to the campaign. The Trailblazers finished their Trophy group with a 2-1 record, but due to Nottingham Hoods’ heavy loss against Riders Loughborough they can’t qualify for the final four. They made a shock exit in National Cup as they went down 100-76 at second division side Liverpool.
Derby and the Big Cats have a quarter of a century of history going back to the original Leopards and Derby Storm with some classic games between the teams.
