Levett Essex Leopards: Leopards looking for top-three finish
Levett Essex Leopards will continue their push for a top-three finish when they host Derbyshire Arrows at the Brentwood Centre, on Sunday. Tip-off is 4pm, with pre-game coaching sessions bookable through www.leopardsbasketball.co.uk starting at 2pm, and it is the first of three home games for the Big Cats in March.
Arrows are one of the Leopards’ oldest rivals having knocked them out of the play-offs in both of their first two seasons in the NBL. But it will be the Big Cats who go into the game as favourites as the Arrows will arrive at the Brentwood Centre in eighth place with six wins from 16 games.
One of those ten league defeats for Pete Kelly’s side came when Leopards visited Killarmarsh Leisure Centre in January 27 points from captain Dougie Bennett and a strong third period paved the way for an 81-69 Leopards’ victory.
