Wolves and Wildcats claim wins

Will Creekmore scored a game-high 26 points as Worcester Wolves beat Manchester Giants 95-80 to move two points clear in the BBL Championship.

Zaire Taylor also had an impressive game for the leaders as he contributed a double-double of 23 points and 11 assists for the Wolves, who now have 14 wins from 17 matches this season and move clear of the Leicester Riders.

Cheshire Phoenix relied almost exclusively on their starting five as they defeated Plymouth University Raiders 100-84, with Dominique Coleman (30 points), Reggie Middleton (28 points and 10 assists), Victor Moses (21 points and 14 rebounds) all making big contributions to the win.

In Sunday's other game, Durham Wildcats eased past Surrey United 79-69 to leave the second-bottom side still searching for their first victory.
