BBL : The Friday Preview - Oct 12, 2012

Atiba Lyons
This weekend will see the completion of the first round of the BBL Cup.

With London Lions having already booked their spot alongside Jelson Homes DMU Leicester Riders, Newcastle Eagles, Worcester Wolves and UCP Marjon Plymouth Raiders who received first round byes, six clubs will battle it out for the last three remaining quarter-final spots.

Mersey Tigers face Surrey Heat at Knowsley Leisure and Culture Park but won't exactly be favourites to progress after having been soundly beaten by the Heat in their first game of the season.

They have at least drafted in some reinforcements, so perhaps the result is not as predictable as it looks on paper and after all, the Cup just loves to shock and spring occasional surprises.

Another team struggling to find a way to win this season is One Health Sharks Sheffield who of course won the competition a couple of seasons ago and they host Cheshire Jets with head coach Atiba Lyons (pictured) looking for his players improve on some critical fundamentals.

"The Jets will be a tough team for us," admitted Lyons.

"We have struggled so far this season taking care of the ball and rebounding so that is our focus this game.

"We need the mind-set to limit easy transition points and turnovers for scores."

Glasgow Rocks meanwhile step out at the Emirates Arena for a second time but searching for not only a place in the last eight of the BBL Cup, but also a first success at their new home having crashed to the Eagles last Sunday after a horrific final ten minutes.

They face a Manchester Giants team who started the season in buoyant fashion before the honeymoon came to a shuddering halt and was replaced by a worrying three game losing streak which Jeff Jones and his team will do well to end when they cross the border.

In another packed weekend of non-stop action, it's not just the BBL Cup which sees court time since there are also a number of intriguing BBL Championship fixtures too - including the north-east derby.

Newcastle Eagles are flying high as expected after a flawless start to the new campaign and they host a Durham Wildcats team at Sport Central tonight who can't, and surely won't, be taken for granted by the high fliers.

Especially since Dave Elderkin and his players have already chalked up a win at Worcester Wolves and then came within a whisker of a subsequent road victory when they were only just edged out by London Lions.

Coach Elderkin has pin-pointed Charles Smith as the main danger although also gave an insight into just how hard it will be to shackle the free-scoring Eagles' forward.

"They used to say Larry Bird only needed half an inch to get a shot off and Charles is not quite there, but it's probably no more than an inch," smiled Elderkin.

"He just uses his body really well to create his own shot out of nothing.

Also riding high along with the Eagles are unbeaten Jelson Homes DMU Leicester Riders who host London Lions whilst Surrey Heat who has only one loss to their name so far will go up against One Health Sharks Sheffield on their home floor, having already picked up a comprehensive road victory against the Yorkshire club.

Finally, Worcester Wolves probably didn't expect themselves to be sat with a 1-3 record after four games but they can go a long way to improving their situation this weekend since they have two league games where they will be targeting maximum points.

They host Mersey Tigers tomorrow night and then make the trip to Northgate Arena on Sunday to match-up with Cheshire Jets.

Enjoy the games!
