Essex Leopards travel to Brixton Topcats looking to get back on track

First published in Sport by

ESSEX Leopards will look to get their Division One campaign back on track when they travel to LSBU Brixton Topcats tomorrow, tip-off 6pm.

The teams have already met in the National Trophy this season, with Simon Cummings (21) and Rowell Graham (19) combining for 40 points in a comfortable 77-63 victory for the Basildon and Brentwood based Big Cats.

Brixton have found things tough going this season and are second bottom in the table with one win from 10 games, having gone winless in the Trophy.

That comes as something of a surprise as Topcats were one of four sides to defeat Leopards on the way to the Division One title last season, with their 84-75 victory coming the day after the Big Cats had won an energy-sapping overtime thriller against Reading Rockets.

However, Leopards gained revenge with a 78-66 win in the return game and lead 6-1 in the all-time series of games between the two clubs.
