BBL 2015-16 Round Up: 1 April

The BBL Championship’s top two came through very different tests on Friday to maintain their title challenges.

Leaders Leicester Riders produced another nerveless showing to edge Worcester Wolves in a thriller while Esh Group Eagles Newcastle showed no ill-effects from defeat to their rivals, brushing aside Bristol Flyers.

Leeds Force also kept their BBL Play-Off dream alive with a win against London Lions and Glasgow Rocks stepped up their push for a top-four spot by thrashing a short-handed Surrey Scorchers.
