The draw for the semi-finals of the 2015 BBL Cup has taken place and the door has been left open for a potential third successive Final between holders Leicester Riders and Esh Group Eagles Newcastle.

However, before Riders can even contemplate their semi-final tie against Bristol Flyers, let alone a third successive BBL Cup Final success; they need to firstly negotiate the last remaining quarter-final match-up.

Rob Paternostro and his side must overcome Glasgow Rocks in the last eight if they want to secure a meeting against the Flyers, who stunned Worcester Wolves last Friday night to reach their first ever semi-final during their rookie season as a BBL franchise.


In the other half of the draw, the Eagles are out to make the Final of the competition for a fourth campaign in a row but standing in their way are Sheffield Sharks.

The Sharks are searching for a return to the Final for the first time since 2011, when they completed back-to-back victories, having won the competition a year earlier.


Ties will take place later this month and during early December with confirmed dates to follow.

BBL Cup semi-finals:

Riders or Rocks v Flyers
Eagles v Sharks

Semi final ties will be played over two legs.


The Final will once again take place at the National Indoor Arena in Birmingham, with the 2015 edition of the event slated for Sunday 11 January.
