Gareth
Murray
A high-scoring Friday night in the BBL Championship saw four home wins and a contraction in the middle of the table.

Esh Group Eagles Newcastle kept up the pressure on Leicester Riders at the top, as Scott Martin put in one of the performances of the season to see them power past Bristol Flyers 108-94. Martin hit nine three-pointers - including six to dig his team out of a first quarter hole - on his way to a massive double-double of 41 points and 11 rebounds.

Further north, Glasgow Rocks strengthened their grip on third place as Gareth Murray (201-F-84, college: Kalamazoo Valley CC) led them to a 95-82 defeat of Cheshire Phoenix - their first home win over this opposition since March 2014, and their fifth win in the last six games.

Meanwhile, London Lions let their top four spot slip as they were beaten 99-91 on the road at Worcester Wolves, a team that shot 61% from beyond the arc as debutant Trey Zeigler sparked a decisive 13-4 fourth quarter burst.

Finally, live on BBC Sport, Surrey Scorchers took possession of the final Play-off spot outright, and closed the gap on those above them, as they impressed in front of the cameras, and a sold out home crowd, to beat Plymouth Raiders 99-75 behind 25 points from Quincy Taylor.

BBL Championship
Glasgow Rocks 95 (20,44,69) (Murray 21, Elechi 15, Achara 13)
Cheshire Phoenix 82 (16,32,63) (Brown Jr 23, Eaves 18, May-Thompson 11)

Glasgow Rocks have strengthened their grip on third place in the BBL Championship after making it five wins in six games with a 95-82 victory over Cheshire Phoenix at the Emirates Arena.

Phoenix came into this one with five consecutive wins in Glasgow, dating back to March 2014, but they had not won in this campaign since their last win north of the border in December, and have now lost five on the spin.

And Rocks led for the majority of this game, although it was rarely comfortable. Gareth Murray split the teams as he scored five in a 7-2 second quarter run, making the score 32-23 as he and Kieron Achara shared 17 early points.

It was double-digits by the half as Anthony Elechi emerged from the bench to quickly get into double-figures himself on 5/5 shooting, Rocks leading 44-32, and Murray's three-pointer after the break kept the lead at that margin.

Cheshire made it close down the stretch, Frank Eaves scoring four in a 10-2 run across the fourth quarter break that got them back to within one shot at 69-67.

But Jonny Bunyan's crucial three-pointer kept them off, and when Neil Watson did likewise coming out of a timeout the score was 82-75 inside the last four minutes, before Rocks scored the last nine points of the game to make it comfortable.

Glasgow shot 58% on the night, led by Murray - who is the league's most accurate shooter - on 61% and 21 points. Watson also had 13 points, nine assists and six rebounds.

BBL Championship
Esh Group Eagles Newcastle 108 (28,60,84) (Martin 41, Fletcher 19, Jackman/Parks 16)
Bristol Flyers 94 (25,46,76) (Cosby 28, Boggs 21, Ali 16)

Scott Martin turned in one of the performances of the season as Esh Group Eagles Newcastle beat Bristol Flyers 108-94 to maintain the pressure at the top of the BBL Championship table.

Martin scored 41 points, hitting nine three-pointers on 81% shooting, while snatching 11 rebounds and dishing five assists to all-but guarantee himself a spot in BBL Team of the Week. He was supported by 19 points and 9 assists from Rahmon Fletcher, as Eagles maintained a record of having won all 11 BBL meetings with Bristol, all by double-figures, with this the fifth time they've been through the century.

But the teams entered this game on similar form, and Flyers showed that early on as they raced into a 9-0 lead on Hassan Ali's three-pointer. But that was as good as it would get, before Martin came alight. He and Fletcher connected from long-range as the Eagles tied at nine, and they were in front at 28-25 by the end of the first period - Martin hitting an astounding six triples in the opening ten minutes.

He then scored five in a row to get the Eagles further ahead in the second stanza, and it was double-digits when he added five more in a run of ten unanswered, for 60-46 on the approach to half time. Martin had already scored eight of his three-pointers by that stage.

And Eagles were never really threatened thereafter, despite Flyers initially narrowing the gap as Brandon Boggs scored 11 third quarter points, before they got as close as 86-81 on Greg Streete's three-pointer in the fourth quarter.

But Deondre Parks and Orlan Jackman, with back-to-back triples, settled the game and pushed the lead back out to 98-86, and it went through the century when Fletcher scored consecutively soon after.

BBL Championship
Worcester Wolves 99 (21,48,69) (Kennedy 19, Klassen 18, Huffor/Khan 14)
London Lions 91 (31,49,67) (Williams 28, Hassan 19, Niktash 15)

Worcester Wolves strengthened their BBL Championship Play-off position, and closed the gap with the top four, with a 99-91 home win over the fourth-placed London Lions, making it five in their last six games.

Wolves shot 61% from three-point range on the night, led by 19 points, eight rebounds and seven assists from Jermel Kennedy, as he hit all three of his long-range attempts; while Marek Klassen led them with five triples on his way to 18 points.

But it was Lions that were initially doing the damage as former Wolves Alex Owumi and Kai Williams hit early treys, the latter 3/3 in the first quarter, to put the visitors up 17-10.

Kennedy changed all that in the second stanza, scoring seven in a run of 13 unanswered as Worcester snatched the lead at 44-39; only to lose it again when Owumi scored four more in an 8-0 finish to the half.

Lions then added the first five of the third period to go 54-48 in front as Andre Lockhart opened with a triple.

But Kennedy and Danny Huffor - who went through 2,000 career points on the night - responded in kind to put the hosts in front 62-60 and they carried that margin into the decisive fourth quarter.

Debutant Trey Zeigler then sparked the match-winning run as he scored five early points, including an 'and-one' play, in what became a 13-4 start when Ashton Khan and Trevor Setty added consecutive three-pointers, for an 82-71 lead.

That proved insurmountable late on, as the Wolves broke an all-time tie of 16 wins each in league meetings between these sides, maintaining a strong home record over the Lions, now 12-4.

BBL Championship
Surrey Scorchers 99 (26,46,75) (Taylor 25, Ogedengbe/Williams 14)
Plymouth Raiders 75 (21,36,49) (Corletto 24, Nicholas 22, Grady 11)

Surrey Scorchers turned on the heat with a blistering display in front of the BBC Sport cameras as they took down Plymouth Raiders

The Scorchers were beaten comfortably in Devon earlier in the season, but re-paid the favour in style even without key starter, Will Neighbour.

Quincy Taylor impressed with 25 points including a tough fadeaway to beat the half-time buzzer before the home side ran riot in a dominant third period that saw Cory Dixon ejected for a second technical.

Plymouth had made an 0-5 start, but that was as good as it got in the contest as the Scorchers took control of a scrappy opening period.

A 17-2 response opened up a double-digit lead and it would take a moment of brilliance from Taylor to maintain a 10-point cushion going into half-time at 46-36.

Early in the third, a great block from Mike Ochereobia at one end led to a corner three from Tayo Ogedengbe to make it a 15-point game and Surrey went from strength to strength.

The gap continued to grow and hit 31 points when Gabe McCray connected from downtown early in the fourth period. The damage had been done and the Scorchers secured the victory that lifts them above Bristol into eighth.

Daryl Corletto led the resistance with 24 points on a poor night for his side as the Raiders drop to 11-9 ahead of Sunday's clash with Cheshire Phoenix.
