Worcester Wolves duo Richie Gordon and Sherrad Prezzie-Blue have been named in the BBL's Team of Week.

The Wolves head coach Paul James told BBC Hereford and Worcester Gordon is in a rich vein of form.

"You run out of superlatives to describe what Richie has been doing this season," he said.

"He has been phenomenal for the team and plays hard both ends of the floor, but he always plays the game with a smile on his face."

The Wolves won both of their league matches last weekend as they moved level on points with Newcastle Eagles at the top of the BBL table.

Before Saturday's comfortable 86-72 victory over Durham Wildcats, Gordon was presented with a gold match ball after being crowned the BBL player of the month for December. He then demonstrated he would not be resting on his laurels as he rattled up 30 points and 20 rebounds.

Point guard Prezzie-Blue has also been in impressive form in recent matches as he totalled 26 points from the games at Mersey Tigers and then at home to the Wildcats.

This tally included an impressive six three-pointers, as well as a raft of assists and rebounds as Prezzie-Blue underlined his key role in the Wolves' title push this season.

Worcester Wolves will return to BBL action on Saturday, 21 January when they will take on Cheshire Jets at the University of Worcester, with tip off at 1900 GMT.
