Zaire Taylor
Four of the top six all secured victories on an action-packed Sunday in the BBL.

Leicester Riders bounced back from their first loss in 17 on Friday with a 93-84 victory against Glasgow Rocks with Brandon Clark netting 23 points.

The Rocks dropped to fourth as DBL Sharks Sheffield mounted a fourth-quarter charge to beat Surrey Scorchers 78-86 and move up a place.

Meanwhile, Worcester Wolves continued their winning run as they defeated Cheshire Phoenix 91-103 in overtime with Maurice Walker scoring 22 points in the win.

London Lions were another team to split a weekend double-header as they recorded an 88-96 win away at Manchester Giants with Zaire Taylor (193-G-86, college: Missouri) and Rashad Hassan combining for 43 points.
BBL Championship
Leicester Riders 93 (23,45,75) (Clark 23, Hampton 22, King 16)
Glasgow Rocks 84 (17,44,57) (Watson 24, Achara 23, Lescault 17)

Leicester Riders returned to winning ways with a 93-84 victory over Glasgow Rocks at Leicester Arena, on Sunday.

The Riders paraded their recent BBL Trophy title pre-game and have their sights firmly set on further adding to their trophy cabinet after restoring a four-point lead at the top of the table.

Brandon Clark made his first six shots from the field on his way to 23 points with Pierre Hampton and Taylor King adding 22 and 16 points respectively.

The home side set the tone with an 11-2 start, but the Rocks settled and closed the first with back-to-back triples. Glasgow took their first lead in the second as Neil Watson scored five straight points against his former side.

Drew Sullivan's three-point play edged the Riders back ahead at the half and they produced a dominant third period, outscoring their opponents 30-13 including a 14-0 run.

Glasgow started the fourth on an 8-0 run to close within 10, but the Riders held firm and closed out their 22nd league win of the season.

Watson had 24 points with Kieron Achara adding 23 points and 12 rebounds with the Rocks now dropping into fourth spot.

BBL Championship
Cheshire Phoenix 91 (26,53,67,88) (Brown 25, Anderson/Allen-Jordan 16)
Worcester Wolves 103 (19,42,64,88) (Walker 22, Setty/Kennedy 16)
after Overtime

Worcester Wolves dominated the extra period to claim a 91-103 overtime success against Cheshire Phoenix in a battle between two of the most in-form teams in the league.

The game was tied at 88 at the end of regulation, but the visitors stepped up with six points from Trevor Setty to help his side record their eighth consecutive win.

Maurice Walker netted 22 points on 10-of-11 shooting, while Setty and Jermel Kennedy added 16 points apiece with seven players in total reaching double figures.

Both sides made strong starts, but it was a 10-0 run that saw Cheshire pull away in the opening period. The home side carried that into the second and went into half-time with a double-digit lead at 53-42.

Worcester tightened things up on the defensive end in the third as they held their opponents to 14 points and moved ahead off the back of a 13-3 spell before Cheshire edged back in front.

The lead changed hands throughout the fourth and Mike DiNunno had the chance of a second game-winner of the weekend but his 3-point attempt was swatted into the first row by Kennedy as overtime ensued.

Wolves made their move and a 15-1 run secured the victory as they close on the top four with their 15-12 record.

Earl Brown scored a game-high 25 points in vain for Phoenix as their win streak ends with the Play-Offs beginning to look out of reach.

BBL Championship
Manchester Giants 88 (18,36,67) (Trobo 18, Toluwase/Jones 17)
London Lions 96 (28,52,70) (Taylor 22, Hassan 21, Wells 12)

London Lions bounced back from Friday's agonising loss with an 88-96 win on the road away at Manchester Giants.

Zaire Taylor and Rashad Hassan combined for 43 points in the win as the Lions consolidated their place in the top eight with a 14-12 record.

The Lions also had three other players in double figures in a balanced attack with GB's Zak Wells going 6-of-7 from the field for 12 bench points.

The visitors set the tone with a 13-4 start to take early control and they led by 10 at the end of the first period. Yorick Williams fouled out in the second and saw his team go on to trail by 16 heading into half-time.

However, the Giants came out firing in the third and made six triples in the period including a trio from Harold Trobo as they closed the gap to a single point at 67-68.

Taylor scored the final points of the third and the Lions used an 11-2 run to restore their double-digit advantage and managed to keep Manchester at bay to secure the win.

Trobo had 18 for the Giants as their valiant fightback came up short and they now have a 4-24 record.

BBL Championship
Surrey Scorchers 78 (22,50,67) (McCray 25, Rollins 14, Ogedengbe/Taylor 13)
DBL Sharks Sheffield 86 (15,39,56) (Riley 22, Rembert 17, Guercy 13)

DBL Sharks Sheffield overturned an 11-point deficit heading into the fourth as they defeated Surrey Scorchers 78-86 on the road.

The visitors poured in 30 points in the final period to complete the turnaround with Malcolm Riley leading four other players in double figures with 22 points.

Rashawn Rembert added 17 points from the bench, while Tony Wroblicky posted a double-double of 12 points and 14 rebounds.

The Scorchers made a bright start with a 9-3 opening on their way to building a seven-point cushion before pulling away late in the second.

Gabe McCray netted twice from downtown in a 9-0 burst to move to 18 first-half points as the Scorchers took a 50-39 lead into the break.

Sheffield closed the gap in the third, but the home side kept them at bay with a 17-17 quarter keeping the gap at 11 ahead of the final 10 minutes.

The Sharks seized control with a pivotal 20-2 spell to start the fourth as they stormed into a 69-76 advantage before closing out the win from the foul line.

McCray finished with 25 for Surrey as their winning run came to an end, though they remain in eighth.
