Tommy
Freeman
Saturday night in the BBL Championship saw the Worcester Wolves and Jelson Homes DMU Leicester Riders consolidate their positions in the top four, while the Mersey Tigers continued their charge towards the playoff places.

The Wolves won their seventh game in a row as they beat the One Health Sharks Sheffield 95-80 to maintain the pressure on the Newcastle Eagles at the top of the table. For the Sharks, it was their second defeat in consecutive nights. The Wolves did all of the damage in the second half as Tommy Freeman (195-F-88, college: Ohio) hit 22 second half points on his way to 30 for the night, ably supported by 22 from Sherrad Prezzie-Blue.

After being separated by no more than four points in the first half, the teams were still tied at 44 midway through the third quarter. The Wolves made the decisive run from there as a 14-6 spell, including 7 for Freeman, saw them take a 58-50 lead inside the last three minutes of the third. The Sharks would get no closer than 6 as the hosts pushed their advantage into double digits in the fourth quarter.

Elsewhere, the Jelson Homes DMU Leicester Riders won their third home game in a row in condemning their bitter rivals the Prestige Homes MK Lions to their sixth straight defeat on the road with an 88-71 victory. The game settled the head-to-head between the two teams in Leicester's favour.

After a strong first quarter, the Riders settled the game with a run around the fourth quarter break. Bradd Wierzbicki led their scoring with 27 points, while Ayron Hardy wasn't far off a quadruple-double with 20 points, 12 rebounds, 8 assists and 7 steals.

The Riders had a commanding lead by the end of the first as Wierzbicki scored 14 points, including 8 in a 10-2 surge that made the score 29-18. They pushed that lead out before being pegged back to 46-37 as the teams went in at the half time break.

They remained close up to 60-53 with three minutes left to play in the third quarter, before the Riders made what proved to be the decisive run. They finished the period 10-2 with Ayron Hardy scoring 8 of those points to take a commanding lead into the fourth quarter at 70-55. That momentum carried into the fourth as they scored the first 6 points, Wierzbicki starting the run as he moved onto 27 points for the night. The lead reached its peak at 80-55 on Hardy's basket with a little over five minutes to play.

Finally, the Mersey Tigers have recorded back-to-back road wins this weekend as they beat the Durham Wildcats 56-86 in the North East, condemning their opponents to their eighth straight defeat. It is the second time that they have won on Durham's floor, after also beating them in February.

The Tigers used a strong defensive showing for the second night in a row, but at the other end were led by 20 points and 12 rebounds from Myles Hesson and 17 points from Matt Otten.

The visiting Tigers led from the second minute throughout and raced into an early 4-15 lead as Sam Cricelli hit 5 points, and the team missed just one of their opening eight shots through the first five minutes - that would set the tone as they shot 72% in the first half and 63% for the game.

It was decided as the Tigers subjected their hosts to a five minute scoreless spell in the second period; they notched 8 points during that time, with Otten and Cricelli starting that run, to lead 18-35. And the lead was soon through the twenty mark as Otten scored consecutive baskets - the second a steal and lay-up - to make the score 20-41 with three minutes to play in the half. That was followed by a third quarter in which the Tigers allowed their hosts just six points and despite a valiant fourth quarter effort the game was done.
