WORCESTER WOLVES
Two weeks ago, the two teams met in the first game of the live coverage on BBC Sport and Bristol Flyers will be out for revenge after ending a 12-game losing run last weekend.

HEAD COACH
Paul James -  A veteran of the British basketball scene as a former player for his hometown team Leicester All-Stars in the 80s, James moved into coaching at Bracknell Tigers before making his name at Guildford Heat. James was named BBL 'Coach of the Year' following a league and cup double in 2007, before leading the club into European competition the next season. Leaving Heat in 2009 James was then appointed Wolves head coach later that year.

ONE TO WATCH
Maurice Walker - Worcester’s newest signing has had a double-double in each of his four games so far for the Wolves. Currently averaging 24 points and 11.5 rebounds per game, the big man scored a game-high 21 points when the teams met in front of the BBC cameras two weeks ago.

OFFICIALS
Taking charge of Friday’s game will be Andy Thackray, Ian Price and Ian Spearman
