Brentwood Centre date for Essex Leopards
11:00am Saturday 22nd March 2014 in Sport
BASKETBALL: ESSEX Leopards will look for their 10th win in 11 games when Leeds Carnegie visit the Brentwood Centre on Sunday, tip-off 4pm.
The Big Cats are now up to second spot in EBL Division One following their 76-70 victory against Worthing Thunder and are the only team who can prevent Reading Rockets retaining the title.
The game will be something of a revenge mission for Robert Youngblood and his team as a controversial end to their game against Carnegie in January saw them lose 64-61 with both Youngblood and his assistant Roger Malpass subsequently banned for a game by England Basketball for comments made to the referee.
Carnegie will arrive at the Brentwood Centre in seventh place in Division One with an 11-9 record, and look a good bet for the post-season play-offs.
