Esh Group Eagles Newcastle v London Lions

Details: Friday 16 December, Sport Central, 7:30pm – BBL Cup, SF Second Leg

Summary: The second leg will decide who plays Glasgow Rocks in the 2017 BBL Cup Final. Newcastle have the upper-hand courtesy of their 80-87 road win last week, but the Lions can draw confidence from their impressive double-digit win at Sport Central earlier in the season.

Season record: Eagles 1-1 Lions (2-1 all comps)

Zak Wells, London Lions centre – “We have a big challenge ahead of us being down 7 and having to play away but it sure is one challenge we are ready for.

“There are some slight adjustments we need to make but for the most part I think we are satisfied how we played on Sunday. We were getting good open shots a lot of the times but we did struggle from behind the arc.

“Most importantly there is no one within our camp that has any doubt we are capable of progressing to the finals and we will be giving it our all come Friday.”
