BBL Championship

A rare treat of some Wednesday night basketball for all Sharks fans as Atiba and the team head on down to Devon for a swift rematch against the Plymouth City Patriots. The Pats pushed the Sharks all the way in a defensive battle last Friday before Coach Lyons’ side pulled away down the stretch for an eleven point win.

Wednesday – Patriots v Sharks – Plymouth Pavilions – 7.00pm

Joe Hart – Another deadly shooter on his day, who proved that point with 16 at Bristol on seven of twelve attempts.
