Ipswich Basketball Club are hoping to attract a record crowd to Copleston for their first round play-off game with old rivals the Worcester Wolves on Sunday.

The Suffolk side’s senior men’s team, who finished third in the table in their first season in Division Two of the English Basketball League, face the squad who consistently got the better of them over the past two seasons in Divisions Three and Four.

But now Ipswich are the stronger team and will be favourites to win, thus reaching their third consecutive national final four.

Head coach Nick Drane said: “Sunday is a big day, we have a great match day sponsor on board in Scrutton Bland so we want to put on a good show for them, it’s the final home game of what has been an amazing season so we want to go out the right way and of course it’s (assistant coach) Matt Ward’s final home game after three years with the team which will be quite special.

“However, the most important thing is winning and making the final four for the third straight season”.
