Leicester Riders celebrated their second BBL Trophy title last Sunday, but full focus returns to the league on a weekend featuring nine games.
Rob Paternostro’s side visit in-form Worcester Wolves this evening before hosting third placed Glasgow Rocks on Sunday in a potentially tricky double-header.
Neil Watson returns to face his former side with the Rocks having lost their last four league games with DBL Sharks Sheffield hot on their heels.
The Sharks go up against Surrey Scorchers away on Sunday with the Scorchers also facing Bristol Flyers in a huge clash between 8th and 9th on Saturday.
It’s a huge weekend on the whole for the Flyers as they also take on South-West rivals Plymouth Raiders, live on BBC Sport tonight, knowing that victory would put them level though they would have the head-to-head.
Surrey currently occupy the final spot in the top eight and forward Jordan Williams believes they have momentum on their side right now.
“I feel like us as a team are finding our rhythm coming together as a team more and more everyday,” he declared. “So that’s definitely building our confidence.
“We’re just taking it game by game, week by week.
“Our home games are going to be really important – we have a great fan base that are always there for us so we fuel off their energy.
“We’re coming close to the end of the regular season and to make the final 8 is close so every game counts.”
Esh Group Eagles Newcastle host Manchester Giants tonight looking to get their title challenge back on track, while London Lions take on two sides in the bottom three as they welcome Cheshire Phoenix before travelling to Manchester two days later.
Cheshire also have a double-header to contend with as they entertain Worcester on Sunday as they still harbour hopes of making a late run into the post-season.
