JETS' play-off hopes were given a huge boost at the weekend after they romped to a double triumph.
Billy Singleton's men produced two outstanding displays against Brighton Bears and Sheffield Sharks to end a run of five matches without a win and lift them back into the play-off zone.
Speaking after the 104-94 victory over third-placed Sheffield Sharks, the play-er/coach admitted he was relieved to get back to winning ways.
He said: 'We trained very hard last week and our guys are really maturing. This was an excellent weekend for us.
'The likes of Phil Gilbert, Damon Bailey, John Simpson and Anthony Martin, are really maturing. As the season goes on, people take more responsibility and they step up. Those guys did it this weekend and I'm really proud of them.
'We have a very young team. We're still a forward short but we're going to take the positives from this weekend and try to move on.'
Jets began the match slowly and the Sharks quickly took a three-point lead to end the first period 27-24 ahead.
But the home side have produced some sterling performances at the Northgate Arena this season, despite their inconsistent form, and in the second stanza they took control with Shawn Myers inspiring his side to a six-point lead.
The Sharks then reduced the lead to five points at the end of the third with McKinney top scoring with 34 points.
But Jets were in no mood to let their lead slip and a 13-3 run to close the match during the last three minutes of action proved to be the decisive difference between the teams.
Phil Gilbert top scored for Jets with 32 points, with Shawn Myers notching 28 and Billy Singleton 18.
The win followed Saturday's 96-88 triumph at Brighton Bears where Phil Gilbert starred with 28points, while Billy Singleton took 19 and Shawn Myers 18.
Jets face a tough trip to BBL Championship leaders Scottish Rocks on Sunday, tip-off 5pm.
