Fabulous
Flournoy
There's an action-packed weekend in store with no fewer than nine BBL Championship match-ups to savour.

With Newcastle Eagles having had half of their trophy cabinet emptied already, by way of their BBL Cup Final loss to Jelson Homes DMU Leicester Riders last month and last weeks' BBL Trophy quarter-final loss to Worcester Wolves, player-coach Fabulous Flournoy (pictured) must pick his team up as they resume their defence of the most coveted of their possessions - the league title.

The Eagles are still locked at the top of the table in an intense battle with Riders, for whom incidentally, the clean sweep is still a possibility. And, both clubs are in action twice this weekend, which could potentially see them prized apart come Sunday night, with Cheshire Phoenix the club who could have the most decisive role to play.

The Eagles host Phoenix at Sport Central this evening and then make the 700 mile round trip to Devon to face UCP Marjon Plymouth Raiders 48 hours later in a classic BBL rivalry which so often throws up a dramatic game. Earlier in the season, the Eagles came back from the dead in the final quarter to steal victory at the Pavilions.

This is something Gavin Love and his team will have at the forefront of their minds when they step out, and they will no doubt be intent on extracting revenge. They will also be looking to the red-hot form of BBL leading scorer Michael Ojo to continue, and especially against a weakened Eagles team unlikely to have injured playmaker Damon Huffman back on board.

Before the Eagles arrive, Raiders complete the first part of a home-court double-header when they clash with fourth placed Surrey Heat, who have really struggled to maintain the pace near the top of the standings lately and are rapidly falling out of the title race.

Riders meanwhile also face Cheshire, albeit after they firstly entertain Manchester Giants on their home floor tomorrow, no doubt keen to avoid any complacency against the visitors who claimed a terrific win against Surrey Heat last week.

Jeff Jones and his Giants players won't be thinking too much about the challenge of facing Riders just yet since they firstly go to One Health Sharks Sheffield tonight. Both clubs are locked in an incredibly intense battle for a play-off spot, each one of four teams currently sat with eight wins to their name.

There's also an intriguing battle brewing higher up the table, with a number of teams bidding to land a top four finish. Eagles and Riders look dead-certs to take two of those slots, and so the likes of Worcester Wolves, Glasgow Rocks and London Lions are all hunting down Heat and Raiders who still have fewer losses to their name in the battle for the two other berths.

Having dealt a real psychological blow to Heat by sneaking into third spot (albeit having played more games), Rocks will want to maintain their momentum, but will be wary of visiting a Durham Wildcats team who are either stone cold or scorching hot of late - and very rarely in between.

Perhaps the biggest beneficiary in the fight for the top four could be Worcester Wolves. Buoyed by their outstanding BBL Trophy win at Eagles last Friday, they have two home games which could really put them in a hugely improved position by the end of the weekend.

They welcome winless Mersey Tigers tonight and then play London Lions 24 hours later, knowing it is essential they take two wins, because a tenth loss of the campaign would put them back on their heels, at a time when they are enjoying being firmly on the front foot and relishing a BBL Trophy semi-final in coming weeks.

Enjoy the games!
