Mike DiNunno
There were mixed fortunes for last week's BBL Trophy finalists on a dramatic Friday night in the BBL.

Leicester Riders saw their club record 16-game win streak come to an end as they were beaten 93-91 by Worcester Wolves, who were led by 24 points from Danny Huffor.

Meanwhile, Cory Dixon scored 32 points as Plymouth Raiders bounced back from their Final disappointment with an 85-62 success over their South-West rivals, Bristol Flyers.

Esh Group Eagles Newcastle ran out convincing 96-65 winners against Manchester Giants as Deondre Parks scored 22, while Cheshire Phoenix edged out London Lions 86-87 on the road with Mike DiNunno (180-PG-90, college: E.Kentucky, agency: Interperformances) netting the late game-winner.

BBL Championship
Worcester Wolves 93 (25,49,70) (Huffor 24, Ziegler 15, Kennedy 14)
Leicester Riders 91 (17,44,61) (Thomson 23, Hampton 17, Washington 14)

Worcester Wolves brought an end to Leicester Riders' club-record 16-game win streak with a thrilling 93-91 victory.

Paul James' side led by as many as 14 in the contest, but needed a late surge to complete the job as they close the gap on the top four.

Danny Huffor netted 10-of-12 from the field for his 24 points with all five starters in double figures, while Jermel Kennedy and Marek Klassen both dished out eight assists.

Worcester opened with a 21-7 run to take early control, but saw their lead cut down to just four points going into half-time.

The home side restored a double-digit advantage in the third period and led 80-70 with 7:06 remaining following a three from Kennedy.

However, the recent Trophy winners battled back with a 10-0 run to tie the game and then used a 7-0 run to take their first lead at 86-87.

Maurice Walker immediately answered and Kennedy netted a dagger three before the Wolves closed out the victory.

The Riders had 53 bench points, led by Andy Thomson's team-high 23, but they drop to 21-3 ahead of Sunday's clash with Glasgow Rocks.

BBL Championship
Plymouth Raiders 85 (20,41,63) (Dixon 32, Corletto/Nicholas 16)
Bristol Flyers 62 (19,31,45) (Cosby 17, Boggs 13, Vigor 9)

Plymouth Raiders bounced back from their BBL Trophy Final disappointment with a much-needed victory as they defeated South-West rivals, Bristol Flyers, 85-62.

Cory Dixon was in inspired form and poured in 32 points to go with 11 rebounds, while Daryl Corletto netted 14 of his 16 points in a pivotal third quarter for his side.

Both teams raced out of the blocks and the game was tied at 14 at the mid-point in the first quarter before Plymouth edged ahead.

The home side went on a 13-0 run late in the second, but a deep three from Hameed Ali ended the first half with Bristol down 10.

Corletto found his range in the third with 11 points in a row as he fired in four triples in total in the quarter as the Raiders extended their advantage out to 18.

There was no let up in the fourth as Plymouth ensured there was to be no fightback from the Flyers with Dixon turning on the style for the home crowd with consecutive dunks in quick succession en route to victory.

A win for Bristol would have put the two teams level, but it's the Raiders who pull away from their rivals with the important head-to-head secured.

BBL Championship
London Lions 86 (29,52,68) (Taylor/Hassan 24, Niktash 21)
Cheshire Phoenix 87 (21,43,69) (Allen-Jordan 25, May-Thompson 22, Brown 14)

Cheshire Phoenix claimed an 86-87 win on the road against London Lions following late heroics from Mike DiNunno.

The American guard was 0-7 from downtown before stepping up with two huge triples in the final minute to continue the Nix's recent win streak.

Dii'jon Allen-Jordan had a game-high 25 points for the visitors with Raheem May-Thompson adding 22 points in the win.

After a delayed start, the Lions were the quickest out of the blocks and they opened up a 29-21 advantage by the end of the opening period.

Navid Niktash raced to 19 points with a string of triples to ensure the Lions remained in command at the break. However, Cheshire hit back in the third and took the lead on the back of a 14-2 burst.

The Lions restored their advantage, but it would be the visitors ahead going into the final 10 minutes by the narrowest of margins.

London went on an 8-0 run to lead 76-71 but the game went right down to the wire with DiNunno tying the game with a three in the final minute.

Taylor held his nerve with two free throws to edge Lions ahead before DiNunno struck again from downtown for the win.

BBL Championship
Esh Group Eagles Newcastle 96 (20,54,72) (Parks 22, Fletcher 17, Martin 16)
Manchester Giants 65 (19,33,47) (Okoro 14, Toluwase 11, Jones 10)

Esh Group Eagles Newcastle returned to winning ways in dominant fashion as they recorded a 96-65 victory over Manchester Giants.

Fab Flournoy's side had lost ground in the title race with recent defeats, but powered their way to a 20th league win of the season.

Deondre Parks put up 22 points in the win in a balanced scoring attack from the Eagles, who were still without Darius Defoe.

The visitors made a bright start and were down by one at the end of the opening 10 minutes before Newcastle broke clear.

34 points were poured in by the home side in the second as they stormed into a 21-point lead at the interval with Rahmon Fletcher and Parks combining for 32 at the half - one short of Manchester's total tally.

The lead continued to grow in the third with Orlan Jackman scoring five straight to move his career BBL tally to 1000 points and he would finish with 12 points and 10 rebounds.

Joe Hart started the fourth with back-to-back triples as the Eagles led by as many as 36 as they completed a comprehensive win.

Jerelle Okoro led the Giants with 14 points, while Callum Jones posted a double-double of 10 points and 10 rebounds in his 200th BBL Championship appearance.
