Rob
Paternostro
After the recent BBL Cup quarter-finals, it's back to BBL Championship action this weekend.

And, there's one particularly mouth-watering fixture to keep a special eye on, as Molten BBL Coach Of The Month Rob Rob Paternostro (pictured) faces up to the task of locking down Molten BBL Player Of The Month, Colin O'Reilly.

Still standing as the only undefeated team in the league, Jelson Homes DMU Leicester Riders will do well to still have such an impressive tag attached to them come Monday morning.

For not only do they host UCP Marjon Plymouth Raiders, it's a double-header weekend against another title rival since they face Surrey Heat on the road on Sunday.

But for now, Rob Paternostro is focused on a tough game against a Raiders team which is packed with talent and not only O'Reilly.

"Jeremy Bell is as explosive as any player in the BBL," said the play-caller.

"Colin O'Reilly, Matt Schneck and Drew Lasker have all put up good numbers before and have lots of experience in this country."

Gavin Love and his Raiders players also have two games in 24 hours. They continue their journey northwards up the M1 from Leicester and then onto the A1 to face Durham Wildcats on Sunday afternoon.

Dave Elderkin is slowly but surely instilling some real belief into his new-look team, and with a morale-boosting narrow loss to Riders and subsequent win against Manchester Giants during recent home games, they could potentially cause a real upset.

However firstly, Wildcats face one of their longest road trips of the year tonight when they travel down to South London to face the Lions. Vince Macaulay and his team will be confident of racking up a third league success of the season, although they also have a long road trip to contemplate.

In fact they will probably be a little annoyed that Glasgow Rocks have boosted their ranks for Sunday's game at the Emirates Arena.

After a slow start, Rocks are looking to give their play-off and maybe even title ambitions a real shot in the arm, drafting in the powerful Mike Ringgold as they look to move to 3-3 in the standings come Sunday night.

The real banana skin of the weekend could possibly be Newcastle Eagles hosting Manchester Giants. Whilst Giants lost in disappointing fashion at Wildcats last time out, the Eagles found it tough going during early October in a relatively tight game against their opponent.

Consequently player-coach Fab Flournoy expects another tough game when Giants turn up at Sport Central, and was quick to point out the merits of the visitors.

"Giants have a lot of talented players and can put up points in a hurry," he said.

"They have six or seven players who can consistently make the three-point shot with David Watts and James Jones both starting well.

"Stef Gill is as explosive a scorer as there is in our league, and David Aliu is extremely consistent. They have also added Ben Eaves to give them yet another guy who can shoot the ball."

The three teams at the bottom of league table are all in action, with the bottom two teams locking horns. Mersey Tigers are still without a win to their name although they will be buoyed by an improved showing in the north-west derby last Sunday when only narrowly beaten by Cheshire. This means One Health Sharks Sheffield can't take anything for granted when they step out against Tigers.

With a second win under their belt, Cheshire faces a real uphill struggle to make it three tomorrow night when they head to Worcester Wolves. They must shackle the sharp-shooting of Alex Owumi and perhaps hope that the in-form Alif Bland and Shawn Myers can help set up a surprise victory.

Enjoy the games!
