Riders crowned champions after blowout - full report - May 14, 2017

Leicester Riders made it a treble winning season as they hammered Newcastle Eagles 84-63 at the O2 in Sunday's play-off final.
Former Eagles Andy Thompson (180-G) led the way with 18 and eight rebounds points as Rob Paternostero's side made up for last season's loss at the London venue. Pierre Hampton picked up the MVP award as he finished with 14 points and as many rebounds
Even a scoreboard malfunction couldn't stop a dominant Riders' side as they led from tip to buzzer
Riders lost the tip but took a 6-0 lead on a pair of treys Shane Walker and Brandon Clark and 15 hit seven straight t points as they opened a 13-4 lead to force a timeout from Eagles' coach Fab Flournoy.
A timeout from the Eagles made little difference, and although Fletcher drained a trey it was 29-11 in Riders' favour at the end of the first period.
Leicester went into half-time with a comfortable lead after dominating the first 20 minutes against Eagles.
Hampton exceeded his season by half-time average with 11 points, and Rob Paternsotro's team have never looked in danger as Thompson also added 11 first half points against his old club.
A big three from Eagles' Scott Martin cut the lead to 20 but Riders went into the locker room with a comfortable half-time lead. A Shane Walker basket with 6:11 on the clock saw Riders' lead grow to 58-31 with 6:11 on the clock to force an Eagles' timeout, and a pair or Fletcher free-throws made it 58-48 at the midway stage of the third quarter.
That was as good as it got and Bernardini drained a trey to send his side into the final break ahead by 28 at 72-44.

The lead went beyond the 30-point mark in the fourth and the celebrations started early as a hat-trick of trophies were secured. Regular season MVP, Rahmon Fletcher finished with 16 points for the Eagles as they were unable to add to their BBL Cup title.

Eagles win BBL Cup and make history - Jan 16, 2017

Esh Group Eagles claimed their third consecutive BBL Cup title after defeating Glasgow Rocks 91-83 in front of a large crowd at the Barclaycard Arena.

Rahmon Fletcher (177-PG-88, college: Green Bay) netted 29 points and dished out six assists to claim his third successive MVP award with Deondre Parks adding 25 points.

The Eagles led by as many as 23 points in the contest and held off a valiant late run from Glasgow to secure another BBL piece of silverware.

Neil Watson made a hot start with two triples in a 10-0 start before Fletcher got the Eagles going with seven points to close within a point.

Another triple from Watson followed as the duel continued with both players up to nine points by the end of the first with the Rocks up by one.

The Eagles went on 13-1 run as Fletcher moved to 15 points to help the Eagles open up a nine-point gap.

The advantage doubled as Newcastle closed the half with a 10-0 run including a corner three from Drew Lasker and a pull-up triple from Deondre Parks before the buzzer.

Gareth Murray netted back-to-back 3-pointers early in the third, but the Eagles went on another run to further increase their lead with Scott Martin making it a 20-point game.

Parks ended the third with another triple to make it 72-49 with the Eagles already seemingly out of reach.

However, the Rocks did not give up and mounted a determined late surge with Watson moving to 28 points as the gap was cut to just seven points in the final minute.

The damage had been done and Newcastle were able to celebrate a historic success.

Fab Flournoy equalled a BBL Cup Final record by finishing with five steals in the win to tie Tony Holley's 2005 record.

BBL Trophy Final
Leicester Riders 91 (27,47,72) (King 20, Hampton 16, Robertson 14)
Plymouth Raiders 58 (7,26,41) (Corletto 20, Dixon 14, Nicholas 10)

Leicester Riders defended their BBL Trophy title in style with a dominant 91-58 victory over Plymouth Raiders.

Taylor King (203-F-88, college: Concordia Irvine, agency: HMS) picked up the MVP award after finishing with 20 points and 10 rebounds with Pierre Hampton adding 16 points in less than 15 minutes.

King set the tone with the first five points of the game while it took Plymouth four minutes to open their account with a three from Daryl Corletto, who had 20 points in defeat.

The defending champions closed the opening quarter with a 15-0 run as King netted another three at the buzzer to make it 27-7.

King quickly moved to 15 points on 5-of-5 shooting early in the second before Plymouth responded with a bright spell to cut the gap to 12 with a 12-2 run capped by a Corletto three.

However, Riders put together another strong finish with Eric Robertson netting from beyond the arc to extend the lead beyond 20 points as they kept their opponents to the lowest first half total in Trophy Finals history.

Leicester continued where they left off in the third as the lead continued to grow and they would establish a commanding 72-41 advantage to take into the final 10 minutes.

Corletto ended a five-minute scoring drought for his side in the fourth with another three before Shane Walker and Brandon Clark scored from downtown as the Riders closed out the win.

The final winning margin of 33 was another Trophy Finals record, beating the previous mark of 25.
