Welcome back British Basketball League! A stunning game of intense high-energy basketball saw Newcastle Eagles win the first game of the new season down in London.

What an absolute thriller it was as The Eagles picked up where they left off last season.

The last game of the 2019/20 season way back in March saw the game’s most storied franchise take their 25th National Final victory in overtime to win The BBL Trophy. This time in another cup game they went to overtime again before prevailing on the road in sensational style.
