Jay
Couisnard
Jelson Homes DMU Leicester Riders ended a 12 year wait for silverware as they lifted the BBL Cup thanks to an 85-80 victory against Newcastle Eagles.

A crowd of 7,500 saw a thrilling game as Riders' Jay Couisnard (198-F-88, college: UMKC) won the Most Valuable Player award with a 17 point haul.

Riders' coach Rob Paternostro was full of praise for his team: "We finally got what we deserved! This was a great team effort and I feel so proud of the guys! We believed all the way that we could do this, and this is a great day for the club."

Eagles' Joe Chapman led all scorers at the NIA as he netted 29 points for the Eagles in the defeat.

Riders had taken a 65-51 lead into the final break but a furious Eagles' comeback saw player-coach Fab Flournoy's basket with 1:05 remaining gave his team an 80-79 lead but a huge three-pointer from Zaire Taylor gave the Riders the lead once again at 80-82 with 45 seconds remaining and they wrapped the victory up from the foul line.

Earlier in the day, another thriller saw the Ireland Superleague Select side win 83-80 against England Select, and Ukraine star Dmitry 'Smoove' Krivenko won the kickz.co.uk BBL Slam Dunk Contest defeating last year's winner, Nathan Schall of the Manchester Giants.

While the Cup final took centre stage over the weekend, there were three BBL Championship games on Friday night.

Glasgow Rocks maintained their chase of the top four with a 92-82 win at Manchester Giants. Player-coach Sterling Davis led his team with 22 points, while Donald Robinson had 20 and Gareth Murray added 17 points and 9 rebounds. Devan Bailey led the Giants with 16 points. The Rocks used a strong second half performance after the Giants led through much of the first.

One Health Sharks Sheffield leapfrogged London Lions into the play-off spots with a 99-64 victory at the winless Mersey Tigers. Sharks never looked back after a 32-11 first period as Demetrius Jemison led the scoring with 22 points, supported by BJ Holmes who scored 16 and added six assists.

Cheshire Phoenix strengthened their position in the top eight with a stunning 88-87 win at Lions. Tayo Ogedengbe put Lions 87-86 ahead with a minute to play and after Adrien Sturt missed a three-pointer, Chez Marks grabbed the rebound and, on the resulting offence, they found Gabe Haskins for the winning basket with just six seconds to play.

Phoenix were led by 22 points from Alif Bland with Jerome Gumbs contributing 20 points and 8 rebounds. Tayo Ogedengbe led all scorers with 28 points and nine rebounds.

Giants snap up Harris - 12 hours ago
Manchester Giants have signed 6ft 8in British forward Clayfell Harris(203-C-87, college: Wayne St., NE, agency: Promotex) from Leeds Force. Harris, 30, has spent the past two years with the Force and becomes the first new face added to the Giants roster by new coach Danny Byrne. Byrne said: 'Clayfell is a powerful guy that has gone a bit unnoticed. He does a lot of the dirty work that doesn't show up on the stats. 'That said, he is more than capable of contributing 15 points and plenty...   [read more]
