Eagles retain BBL Cup after classy comeback - Jan 17, 2016

Esh Group Eagles Newcastle pulled off a remarkable comeback from 14 points down in the third to defeat Leicester Riders 94-82, and retain their BBL Cup title.

Riders looked in the ascendancy when they established a 68-54 lead in the third, but the Eagles rallied to set up a tense finish before powering to victory with a clinical 13-2 close.

Rahmon Fletcher was instrumental for his side, and picked up the MVP award for the second year in a row with 18 points along with four assists.

Defences were expected to be key leading into the anticipated showdown, but both teams found ways to execute on the offensive end in a high scoring opening period with Riders finding most of their success inside to build an early advantage.

Joe Chapman had closed the gap with seven of his 17 points in quick succession, before Charles Smith scored four of the opening six points in the second to fire Newcastle in front.

TrayVonn Wright began to display his athleticism with four dunks on his way to nine points in the quarter, while Conner Washington provided his usual spark from the bench with five points to help Leicester into a double-digit lead at 50-39 before the half.

Eagles had gone 2-of-14 from 3-point range in the first half, and although they shot better from beyond the arc in the third, the Riders matched their opponents and appeared to be pulling away as they opened up a 14-point cushion

However, back came the defending champions and all of a sudden it was a two-point game on the back of a 12-0 run. The comeback was complete in the early stages of the fourth as the Eagles moved ahead with Drew Lasker scoring four points in a 7-0 burst.

Leicester kept it close and were down one with more than three minutes still remaining, but the Eagles showed their mark as champions with a title-winning win.

Newcastle had six different players in double figures as they achieved a fifth consecutive piece of silverware in the BBL, and continued their winning streak this season.

Riders finally claim the BBL Trophy title after holding off Eagles fightback - Feb 27, 2016

It was fifth time lucky for Leicester Riders as they finally got their hands on BBL Trophy silverware with an 85-77 victory against Esh Group Eagles Newcastle, at the Emirates Arena. Riders led by as many as 17 points in the third quarter, and just like they did to win the BBL Cup Final, the Eagles battled back, however this time there would be a different ending. GB captain Andrew Sullivan (203-F-80, college: Villanova, agency: Interperformances) was hugely influential for the Riders, finishing with a game-high 22 points including some crucial baskets in the fourth to earn the MVP award. Tyler Bernardini (198-G-88, college: Pennsylvania) netted nine first quarter points, helping Leicester into a 16-5 lead midway through the opening period, before the Eagles responded with a 10-0 run. The game was tied at 26 early in the second before nine unanswered points saw the Riders regain control, and Conner Washington's basket before the buzzer helped his side go into the half-time break with a 12-point cushion. Wright increased the gap to 17 points with a three to make it 49-32, but the Eagles began to find their range from downtown to mount another resilient fightback. Late in the third, Rahmon Fletcher (177-PG-88, college: Green Bay) connected with two big triples to cut the lead to six, and the momentum remained with the defending champions as they started the final quarter with an 8-2 run. On three occasions, the lead was cut to a single point, but the Riders held firm and extended their advantage to six points, only for Scott Martin (203-G-88, college: Notre Dame, agency: Interperformances) and Joe Chapman (193-G-84, college: Marquette, agency: I.D.S. Law) to connect with back-to-back triples to tie the game at 72. However, Andrew Sullivan replied yet again with another three of his own to put his side back ahead - and this time for good - sparking an 8-0 run as Riders kept their opponents scoreless in a vital spell before closing out the game from the foul line. Fletcher led the Eagles with 18 points, but their quest for a second consecutive clean sweep was ended in Glasgow.
