SHEFFIELD Sharks will look to build on last week’s BBL Trophy victory when they resume their chase of a play-off berth tomorrow night at the EIS (7.30pm).

Last Friday the Sharks beat Glasgow Rocks 84-81 in overtime to book their place in the Trophy’s last four.

Point-guard BJ Holmes was declared fit from a shin injury just before tip-off and he showed he was ready to play by scoring a game-high 25 points.

Tomorrow Sharks meet an in-form Durham Wildcats side who have win three of their last four matches.

However, Sharks have had the better of the two meetings between the side this season having won 74-58 at the EIS in October and 88-73 in the north east in early December. The teams are level on points in the BBL Championship. Sharks are eighth and Durham tenth.
