Fabulous
Flournoy
An exciting weekend lies ahead including the first BBL Cup tie of the season.

Whilst the intensity of the BBL Championship continues, London Lions are scheduled to host Durham Wildcats on Sunday as the BBL Cup gets underway. Even if the Lions may have been thought of as clear favourites when the draw was made, Coach Macaulay and his team could be heading into this one on a four game losing streak. And, with Durham having won at Worcester Wolves, its no foregone conclusion.

Meanwhile in the league, defending champions Newcastle Eagles face a tough double road test this weekend. Fabulous Flournoy (192-G/F-73, college: McNeese St.) and his team are sitting pretty and unbeaten after three games but that perfect record will be put to the test in no uncertain terms when they step out in Manchester tonight and at Glasgow Rocks on Sunday.

The Giants are seeking a third straight home victory of the season and something will have to give when they match-up with the Eagles although according to Giants head coach Jeff Jones, his team know they are also in for a big test.

Not only do they host the Eagles, but they must also travel to Devon on Sunday to face UCP Marjon Plymouth Raiders - the other team installed as a frontrunner to win the title. So, could Jones have had a more difficult weekend?

Only if I was crossing the Arctic circle on foot! laughed the play-caller who is now realising just what it means to be back in the big time.

All this seemed like a great idea a couple of years ago and to be honest, this is the kind of weekend you want, no matter what the results are.

I wanted to get back into coaching in order to challenge the best teams in the league.

I guess I would prefer not to do it on the same weekend, but if you don't want to play and coach in these type of contests, you shouldn't be playing the game.

Rocks against the Eagles always throws up a classic more often than not, and, the Commonwealth Arena will gets its first taste of this rip-roaring rivalry. This could be a fascinating game since both sides have already met each other this season with the Eagles winning relatively comfortably on the opening night of the season.

Another side who faces a weekend double header are Surrey Heat as they try to continue a solid start to the season which has seen them win both of their opening games. That is of course a stark contrast to the beginning of last season when Creon Raftopoulos and his team posted a nightmare start which meant they had to play catch up for pretty much the rest of the campaign.

With wins against struggling One Health Sharks Sheffield and Mersey Tigers in the bag, they will be wary of facing a backlash from their former captain Mike Martin and London Lions this evening at Crystal Palace. Lions are still yet to win a game this season after opening up with three straight losses, and they will want a win behind them to not only get off the mark in the league, but to also build confidence ahead of Sundays Cup tie with Wildcats.

Heat then host Worcester Wolves at Surrey Sports Park on Sunday with the visitors no doubt buoyed by their convincing win against Manchester Giants last weekend and this promises to be an intriguing clash.

Theres also going to be potential fireworks in the north-west too, as Cheshire Jets host Mersey Tigers in a derby game at the Northgate Arena. The only guarantee is that one team will pick up their first success of the 2012-13 season and the smart money will be on the home team who gave a terrific account of themselves against Jelson Homes DMU Leicester Riders last Saturday night despite the loss.

Enjoy the games!
