Worthing looking to overcome the Storm Worthing Thunder will be looking to take advantage of Hemel Storm’s recent dip in form when they visit in Saturday’s NBL Division 1 clash at the Worthing Leisure Centre. The two teams have met once this season with Hemel coming away with a 91-89 win in November, with Worthing giving away a ten-point lead early in the fourth quarter. Since that game though, Worthing have enjoyed a steady surge up the standings with Coach D’s side landing as high as second before losses to Leicester Warriors, Solent Kestrels and more recently Team Northumbria leaving them fourth in the table. Thunder though will be looking to continue their solid home form this season, which has seen them lose only once in the league all season. And if they defeat the Storm by more than the two points that Hemel beat Worthing by, then the south-coast outfit will own the crucial head-to-head. Hemel will be coming into this game having suffered two losses in their last three games. Before that, they captured the National Cup by disposing of the Manchester Magic. Coming off last weekend’s trip to the north-east, where Thunder split their two games, captain Brendan Okoronkwo believes that his team are better on their home floor and that they need to gain momentum, heading into the post-season. “Building moment in the second half of the season and into the Playoffs is key,” Okoronkwo said. “We’re a much better team protecting our home court and with Hemel’s recent form after winning the cup, we should have the upper hand going into the weekend.” Thunder’s NBL Division 1 game against Hemel Storm, tips-off at 7:30pm on Saturday evening.
