James Jones
The opening night of the BBL Championship saw wins for the reigning champions, the Newcastle Eagles, last season's runners-up, the Jelson Homes DMU Leicester Riders, and this season's new boys, the Manchester Giants.

The Eagles were dominant in the middle two quarters of their game against the Glasgow Rocks to emerge 72-65 winners in the North East. Joe Chapman (193-G-84, agency: I.D.S. Law, college: Marquette) picked up where he left off to lead the Eagles with 23 points and 8 rebounds, while Charles Smith added 18 and Darius Defoe had a double-double of 10 points and 11 rebounds.

They scored the last 8 points of the first quarter and carried that momentum into the second to establish an early double-digit lead at 25-15. They went on to restrict the Rocks to just 7 second quarter points as they led 35-21 at the midway point, and the first 6 points after the break pushed the lead through twenty on a Kareem Maddox (202-F/C-89, college: Princeton) dunk. The Rocks revived themselves only for Charles Smith to hit two three-pointers in quick succession to halt the visitors. The Eagles then scored the first 6 points of the fourth quarter to keep the lead around 20, before a valiant effort down the stretch made the score respectable for the Rocks.

Elsewhere, the Riders overcame the One Health Sharks Sheffield 55-71 on the road. Jorge Calvo's trio of three-pointers in the first quarter lit up a 10-2 run that gave them a lead at 16-21 that they would not relinquish. That was followed by a dominant second quarter that included an 11-0 surge up to the half time break as new big man Rob Fraley scored 17 first half points and Jay Couisnard (198-F-88, college: UMKC) hit a three-pointer on the buzzer. The Sharks restricted their visitors to just 7 third quarter points, but it wasn't enough as the Riders kept them at arm's length, Fraley scoring 23 and GB Olympic player Drew Sullivan adding 13.

Finally, the Manchester Giants returned to the BBL with a dramatic last minute 85-84 defeat of the London Lions in the North West. James Jones (193-G/F-83, college: Whitworth) led the scoring with 29 points, while Mo Williams added 15 and David Watts 13.

After a slow start, the Giants had much the better of the first half and led 41-36 at the break. But the Lions put them under pressure in the third quarter and had them on the rack in a 20-5 spell that saw the visitors head into the fourth with a 55-62 lead. The pendulum swung once more as Stefan Gill scored 8 early fourth quarter points to tie the game at 68, and the Giants pushed on as Watts and Jones added triples in an 11-0 run that helped them lead 83-77 going into the final minute. But an 'and-one' play from Duane James (196-F-83, college: Binghamton) and a Devon Bailey turnover that led to another James score saw the Lions back in at 83-82 with 30 seconds to play. Mike Martin then stole the ball from Stefan Gill and converted at the other end to give the Lions a dramatic late lead - a seven point swing in 40 seconds. Bailey atoned for his mistake by making 2/2 from the free-throw line to give the lead back to the Giants with23 seconds to play, and the roles were truly reversed as Duane James turned the ball over with 18 seconds left, forcing Perry Lawson to foul James Jones. He missed both free-throws, only for Mike Martin to continue the role reversal as he turned over with six seconds remaining leaving the Giants to just keep the ball to secure the victory.
