The Leicester Riders are set to feature in our first webcast this Friday, January 8th.
Things are looking good for the Riders. A long winning streak has earned their coach, Rob Paternostro the Molten BBL Coach of the Month award for December. It’s a deserved win, the Riders have still only lost once this season in all competitions.
Paternostro masterminded his team’s safe passage into another BBL Cup Final and ensured Riders remain well-placed in 2016 to continue to challenge Esh Group Eagles Newcastle for the BBL Championship title.
They started December with a BBL Cup Semi-Final second leg victory against London Lions, completing the job and wrapping up a coveted berth at the Barclaycard Arena in Birmingham on Sunday 17 July against the Eagles, with a 75-65 success.
The first of a trio of BBL Championship triumphs and also consecutive road wins came at Manchester Giants, as Riders eased their way to a 76-66 victory.
This Friday they return to the Copper Box to take on this season’s less fancied London Lions, although with the exciting win against the Plymouth University Raiders still uppermost on their minds, the Lions will be looking to continue their recent good form.
