Ogedengbe looking to make it three wins in a row

The Surrey Scorchers are looking to make it three wins on the bounce when they welcome the Worcester Wolves to Surrey Sports Park on Sunday.

The Scorchers previously beat the Wolves 84-80 in October.

Surrey pulled off an upset last weekend, defeating Glasgow on the road which saw Tony Hicks and Gerald Robinson combine for 54 points.

Josh Steel also poured in 20 points in his first start for the Scorchers.

Tayo Ogedengbe said: “It was a great win. It felt good to execute our game plan and come away with a win.”

Ogedengbe and Steel attended a mini-camp with the England national team in Manchester earlier this week. The camp consisted of 24 players battling it out for a place on England’s Commonwealth Games team for 2018.

Bristol Flyers head coach Andreas Kapoulas is the head coach of the national team, with his coaching staff boasting experience, including Team GB legend Drew Sullivan.

Ogedengbe said: “The camp was very productive. It was a very high standard and very professional. The coaches got the best out of the players.”

Returning to practice with Surrey, the veteran emphasized his belief that the team can push on with yet another win.

He added: “We have a bit of a different game plan as the team has changed since we last played them, but generally it’s the same focus.

“We can definitely score the ball but our main focus has been on defense so we are expecting more on that side.”

Tip-off on Sunday is at 2pm at Surrey Sports Park.
