A HARD-FOUGHT win over Lions on Sunday brought Jets a brace of impressive victories for the weekend after they had edged out Brighton Bears 87-85 the night before.
Coach Paul Smith said: 'Neither of our wins were pretty. We had to pinch one at Brighton and grind one out against Lions but it's good that we're learning to win games in different ways. Lions' triangle and two defence really took us out of our flow and a few of our players had off-days but we showed character.
'We lost our head at one point and that wasn't good but we'll learn from that.'
BBL top-scorer Trey Moore was again in imperious form for Jets and while he ended up leading the hosts' points tally, a mark of his ability as a team leader was displayed in the way in which he brought his colleagues into the game early on.
By the end of the quarter, the Texan guard was already Jets' highest scorer with nine but he did not hit register himself until Jets' 20th point, instead choosing to pick out his teammates.
With Jets making another lightning start and leading 30-17 at the end of the first quarter and Lions' biggest inside threat Shawn Jamison benched for picking up three fouls, it looked like the visitors were not going to put up much of a fight.
But Nigel Lloyd's side doggedly fought back in the second and with Brett Longpre on fire from long range they even led (36-35) before trailing 49-41 at the interval.
The ever-alert Moore was embarrassing opponents with relative ease as he earned fast break baskets on at least a hat-trick of occasions and Jets led 76-64 going into the final quarter.
Late on, DJ Harrison was involved in fisticuffs for the second week running as he clashed with BBL campaigner and wind-up merchant, Robert Youngblood.
Both men had been dominant figures of the third period but fell out following an 'unsportsman-like' foul from the Milton Keynes man and Harrison had to be restrained as he threw his mouth-guard at his opponent.
Lions' Jamison had already been fouled out and Harrison followed soon after, being joined on the sidelines in the final minute by Ishua Benjamin and Brett Longpre.
Jets' scorers: Moore (24); Harrison (22); Myers & Herriman (both 12); Davis (11); Singleton (9); Martin (5). nBilly Singleton is holding a basketball camp at Christleton High School for eight- to sixteen-year-olds on Monday and Tuesday.
