London Titans' Great Britain Paralympic bronze medalist Ade Adepitan believes that his team have a chance to close the gap to the Premier Division leaders Sheffield and The Owls.
"Those teams have the bulk of the GB players, so both teams can pretty much start a team of full-time athletes," he told BBC Sport. "If any other teams could do that I think they would catch up pretty quickly.
"I don’t think the difference is that big - this weekend will be very competitive – we’ve been preparing very hard for this."
Adepitan, currently to be seen fronting the Africa series on BBC Two, won wheelchair basketball bronze with GB at the 2004 Athens Paralympics but now has to fit training into his schedule as a presenter.
“The key has always been to manage not just how much I train, but also how much I rest. The hardest thing is to try and get that balance right," he said.
"But I watch what I eat and I know I’m not young any more – I’m going to be 46 in 20-odd days."
The Africa series was filmed in basketball's off-season, so Ade's problem was trying to stay fit while on the road. "Travelling across Africa was really hard," he recalls. "The last trip was about a month – through Mozambique, Zimbabwe and South Africa and then we finished in Mogadishu.
" Oh and then I went on a book tour..."
