TREY Zeigler says his Worcester Wolves team-mates must continue to “embrace the moment” as they bid to extend their 12-match winning streak.
Wolves have not tasted defeat since losing 96-78 at Plymouth Raiders in the BBL Trophy semi-final first leg more than two months ago.
And Zeigler has yet to lose in a Wolves jersey having finished on the winning side in all 10 of his outings after arriving in mid-February.
Worcester are now preparing for their final two games of the regular British Basketball League season.
They tackle fifth-placed Sheffield Sharks at the University of Worcester Arena on Friday (7.30pm) before travelling to champions Leicester Riders on Sunday (4pm).
And Zeigler insisted they were not ready to take their foot off the gas as they look to keep their scintillating form going ahead of the play-offs.
“I had a similar run to this in college and high school where we reeled some wins off and it is a lot of fun when you are playing like this,” said the 25-year-old forward.
“It doesn’t happen all the time where you are able to win 12 games in a row so you have got to embrace the moment.
“I have not lost so hopefully we can finish the regular season with 14 straight wins which would be a huge accomplishment and then keep it moving in the play-offs.”
Wolves’ impressive run has lifted them to fourth position where they are sandwiched between Glasgow Rocks and Sharks, who also have 38 points, and Zeigler said they were determined to finish in the top three.
“We want to keep playing basketball. If we could play a game every day with how we are playing right now we would love that,” the American continued.
“We have got Sheffield and Leicester this weekend so hopefully we can somehow get third place by winning both games which would put us in a great position to have a chance of getting to the O2.
“All we talk about every day is making sure we stay focused.
“We have had mental lapses in defence and the coach (Paul James) has told us about that so we need to just sharpen up on those things and continue to get better because we know how important the play-offs are.”
Zeigler said he was also relishing the prospect of teaming up with fellow small forward Andrew Bachman and prolific scorer Maurice Walker on court.
Bachman is recovering from a calf injury while Walker is battling back from a hamstring problem.
The duo, who have returned to training, will be keen to feature in Wolves’ remaining games.
“A lot of people don’t know this but we have been doing this (training) with six or seven guys so when we get nine or 10 together we will get even better,” Zeigler added.
“Mo is a big part of our team as he scores and rebounds and Bachs can stretch the floor for us so when we get those guys back it is only going to add to what we have already.”
