Riders tip-off double-header
JETS face an unusual double-header as they play Sunday and Monday in the BBL Championship this week. First up for the Jets is the visit of the Leicester Riders to the Northgate Arena this Sunday (5.30pm).
While the Riders are in high spirits, the Jets will be trying to pick themselves up after losing the BBL Trophy final 111-95 to Newcastle Eagles.
Head coach Paul Smith said: “The Riders are strong inside and they crash the boards very well.
“The race for the top four is on and that is the major focus for us now.
“There is very little room for error when you look at how close the teams are but if we show the character that got us to two finals this year and treat every game like a cup game then we can finish the season strong.”
Jets then travel to Milton Keynes to face the MK Lions on Monday night.
