Summary:

Birmingham’s Barclaycard Arena will stage a repeat of the 2015 BBL Cup Final when Esh Group Eagles Newcastle and Glasgow Rocks contest the 2017 edition on Sunday.


Eagles were triumphant, 84-71, on that day, paving the way for a clean sweep of top-flight silverware. Fab Flournoy’s side defended the title 12 months ago too, fighting back from 14 points down in the third quarter to overcome Leicester Riders.

Rocks, meanwhile, will be aiming to lift the Cup for the first time and end their long wait for silverware, which stretches back to the 2003 BBL Play-Off title. And they appear well equipped to do, boasting one of their best line-ups since that post-season success.

Season record: Eagles 1-0 Rocks
