BBL 2015-16 Round Up: 8 April

Leeds Force caused one of the shocks of the season on Friday as they upset BBL Championship leaders Leicester Riders to throw the title race – and push for the Play-Offs – wide open.

Esh Group Eagles Newcastle took advantage of the opportunity to draw level on points with Riders as they beat Glasgow Rocks and set up a crunch meeting with the Leicester club in seven days’ time.

And London Lions got back to winning ways with a hot-shooting performance against Worcester Wolves.
