British Basketball League Regular Season

Another massive Thursday night game awaits the B. Braun Sheffield Sharks this week. In town are the Surrey Scorchers, who are having their best season in recent memory and are currently just one place and one loss away from the Sharks in the standings. The Scorchers have only one defeat in their last five outings and can note victories over the Sharks on the last two occasions they have met. The Sharks need to bottle the winning mentality they achieved in last Thursday’s win against Plymouth as they look to protect their excellent record at the Canon Medical Arena.

Thursday – Sharks v Scorchers – Canon Medical Arena – 7.45pm

Ones To Watch

Justin Robinson – The veteran two-times MVP was as influential as ever as Surrey claimed a 74-80 road win in Bristol. Robinson dished 8 dimes as well as making 12 points as the Scorchers continued to climb the standings.

Abdul Mohamed – One of the Scorchers’ standouts of the season, who contributed a double-double in the Bristol victory. Mohamed’s all-round game garnered 11 points, 11 rebounds, 3 assists and 4 blocked shots as Surrey secured seventh place with their 12-16 record.

Saiquan Jamison – Another spectacular outing for Surrey’s double-double machine. 15 points and 12 rebounds came on 6 of 11 shooting with an assist, a steal and a block to boot in the South West. Averages 9.5 points and 9.8 rebounds for the season.

Andrew Lawrence – Lawrence’s veteran knowledge is proving invaluable alongside that of Justin Robinson as the Scorchers record their best season for some time. Made 3 of 5 shots from beyond the arc on his way to 15 points overall from just under 20 minutes on court against the Flyers.

Shark Bites

The Sharks go into their clash with the Scorchers holding a 2-1 advantage in the three previous regular season games. However, the Scorchers hold a narrow 227-226 points scored advantage, meaning that whoever wins this game will take the head to head for the season.

Surrey have won the two most recent games between the clubs, one in the British Basketball League Trophy and the other in regular season play. The last time Surrey won 3 games on the trot against the Sharks was in late 2012.

The Sharks 97 points against Plymouth recently was their highest score against a fellow British Basketball League team since putting up 102 against Newcastle Eagles on 4th February 2022. The 37 point winning margin in that game had only been achieved by the Sharks once before – on 4th November 1999.

Winning by 37 was the joint 28th biggest margin of victory in club history. However, it was not the biggest win against Plymouth. Both 42 and 43 point wins have been previously achieved.
