Darius Defoe
There were dramatic second half swings in both of Friday night's BBL Championship games, with the Newcastle Eagles and Manchester Giants prevailing to maintain their respective unbeaten starts to the season.

The Eagles saw off a fourth quarter fightback from the Worcester Wolves to win 81-73 in the North East and record three straight wins to start the season. Darrius Defoe (204-F-84) led the hosts with 26 points and 8 rebounds, while Joe Chapman (193-G-84, agency: I.D.S. Law, college: Marquette) scored 17 points and dished out 9 assists.

The Eagles established a double-digit lead in the first quarter as Defoe scored 9 points and they led 27-15 after the opening ten minutes. They maintained that lead for much of the first three quarters and Defoe put them up at 58-41 in the third. But the Wolves came back from there, finishing the period 9-2 with triples from Stuart Thomson (198-G-88, agency: JEMsports, college: Catawba) and Stanley Ocitti (203-F/C-80, college: Binghamton).

The late scare came when that run continued to become an 18-point swing. The Wolves shocked their hosts with a 13-0 surge in the fourth quarter as consecutive triples from Ocitti, Owumi and Stuart Thomson got them back to within one point at 64-63. And the comeback was complete soon after as a pair of Kaslauskas free-throws gave them a lead that no one could have expected only minutes previously, and their first lead of the game.

The Eagles tied through Defoe and the teams were then tied at 67 and 69 before a crucial Charles Smith three-pointer gave the hosts the edge, and they would not let that lead go again. Damon Huffman (186-PG-85) added another triple and Defoe epitomised his night with an old-fashioned three-point play that made the score 78-71 with two minutes to play, and there was no way back for the Wolves.

Elsewhere, a classic old BBL rivalry was renewed as the One Health Sharks Sheffield crossed the Pennines to meet the Manchester Giants, with the Giants triumphing by 99-87 after a storming second half comeback. James Jones (193-G/F-83, college: Whitworth) had 27 points and 6 assists, with his 12 third quarter points proving crucial; David Watts (206-F-83) added 20 points and 7 rebounds. Gage Daye (188-G-89, college: Bloomfield) led all scorers with 30 points in vain for the Sharks.

The Sharks used a 16-3 first quarter tear to lead 20-30 and led by as much as 22-37 in the second period and 42-52 in the third. But from there three Jones three-pointers sparked the comeback as the Giants rattled off 18 straight points in what became a 20 point swing in just eight minutes as they established a 72-62 lead of their own. By the time Micah Williams (193-G/F-88, college: E.Tenn.St.) scored a three-pointer for the Sharks, they had gone scoreless for five minutes and trailed 72-65 going into the fourth quarter.

The Sharks did score the first two baskets after the break but James Jones was there again for the Giants with a three-pointer, and he scored again before Watts hit a triple and Gill and Aliu scored to see their lead peak at 85-71. And from there, still with five minutes to play, the game was settled.
