This Sunday afternoon eight teams will suit-up at The O2 for an exciting never before seen British Basketball tournament with a huge prize of £25,000 for the winning team.
Across a five-hour session the teams will play in a double elimination format; two wins and the team will advance straight through to the semi finals, two losses will result in being knocked out of the tournament with teams winning one and losing one of their opening matches playing a deciding match for a place in the last four.
