Westminster Warriors are still looking for their second win of their National League Division One season after falling to a strong Derby Trailblazers side.

Derby won 94-72 on Saturday, despite the best efforts of Warriors trio Arif Sempala (11), Dreyshun Brown (12) and Justin Hitchman (14).

Warriors now sit at 1-4 this season ahead of Saturday’s game against London Lions II, formerly known as Barking Abbey, who are still looking for their first win and sit bottom of the table with an 0-5 record.

The academy side of British Basketball League and EuroCup competitors London Lions is a very young, inexperienced squad, with 17-year-old Great Britain youngster Nedas Cholevinskas currently leading the scoring with 11.5 points per game as the team averages 66.4.

Warriors will see this as a great opportunity to get that second win on the board and get a streak going ahead of a short stretch of home games, in order to pull away from the sides at the bottom of the division. 

But they need the support of their local community and are calling on spectators to get a ticket and support them at Moberley Sports Centre, Kensal Rise on Saturday (5.30pm).

“One game at a time, one play at a time," said high-flying guard Sempala.

"We’ve definitely been improving week by week and have shown glimpses of what we’re capable of. Playing at home in front of our amazing supporters, means we’re that much more fired up to win. You don’t want to miss it!”
