Hull Wasps have made it 2 wins from their opening 2 league games this season with a convincing 75-61 victory at Stockport Falcons.

Polish guard Kamil Pilarkski top-scored with 18 points in a contest that Hull never trailed.

A young and well-drilled Falcons side could not cope with another strangling defensive performance by the Wasps in front of a hostile crowd at the Stockport Ball Hall.

The visitors' excellent full-court pressure led to a string of fast-breaks that were converted by the jet-heeled Pilarkski.

When Stockport managed to get to the basket, time and again their shots were blocked by 6ft 10in polish centre Michal Kucmierczyk, who added 12 points.

In another well-balanced attack, forward Jamie Goodwin chipped in with 14 points, point guard John Kelsey scored 12 and guard Matthew Fawcett added nine.
