London United got off to a crucial weekend of games against Worcester Wolves in disastrous fashion crashing to their first defeat of the season against a really fired up team on Saturday night.

London new the importance of maintaining their run of wins especially in the knowledge that they must return to Brunel to play closest rivals Sheffield the very next day.

The game started fairly well for London as they took an 18-19 1st quarter lead with Mumuni leading the way with 7 points and Callender and Reid looking bright in the paint.

The 2nd saw Wolves battle hard to regain the lead after London pushed 10 points ahead from Mumuni, Vear and Callender although the big crowd home advantage really helped them gain motivation as they fought back to take the half by 2 points at 36-34.

The 3rd quarter saw Wolves go on a 12-2 scoring run to take a 61-47 lead in the 9th minute giving United a tough ask, especially as Wolves were playing good team defence denying United's big men the easy looks they have been able to work previously.

The last quarter saw United desperately try to get back into the game although they could only trade baskets as Mumuni and Reid went to work however they trailed by 12 with 2 minutes to go and had two fouls to give before putting Wolves on the foul line. With 1 minute remaining United forced Worcester to make their foul shots and they duly responded with 5 from 8 as United hit the last 5 points of the game to finish 11 down at 83-72.

Top scorers for LU; Mumuni 29, Reid 15 and Deppisch and Callender 8.
