A late run by Worcester Wolves dumped the Sharks out of the BBL Trophy on Wednesday night with an 84-70 loss.

Trailing 62-60 after the first leg in Sheffield last Friday the Sharks were on the back foot after finishing the opening two quarters down by 14 overall.

Sharks pulled back to 62-56 (down by eight overall) heading into the final quarter and levelled the match on the night at 66-66.

However, the Wolves, who lead the BBL Championship, scored the next six points and closed the game with the final seven points to win the tie 146-130 on aggregate.
