Sheffield Sharks v Bristol Flyers
Friday, March 25th (7.30pm)
Bristol Flyers will be hoping for a Good Friday when they travel to Sheffield Sharks to begin a doubleheader of away games this Easter weekend.
All the key information on Friday's opponents can be found below.
Having banked the BBL Trophy in 2013, Sharks have flirted with making other Finals, but not quite managed to take that final step, and last year finished in seventh place in the BBL Championship. Despite their impressive BBL performances, Sharks have won the play-offs just once, defeating Cheshire Phoenix in 2004. Sharks look well on course to qualify for the play-offs once more, sitting comfortably in fourth in the BBL table.
Atiba Lyons – Joining Sharks as a player in 2006, Lyons made the step up to coach in 2008. During his tenure in Sheffield, Lyons has won two BBL Cups, one BBL Trophy and led the team to two second place finishes as well as runners-up in the 2011 play-offs.
ONE TO WATCH
Mike Tuck - Tuck is one of the most reliable players in the BBL, having served the club for a number of seasons. The Canadian forward currently averages 14 points and 8.4 rebounds per game. Tuck top-scored with 16 points when the two sides met earlier in the month.
Taking charge of Friday’s game will be Simon Unsworth, Dale Aitcheson, and Mac Calldener.
LAST TIME OUT
An exciting finish saw Flyers hand Coach K the perfect birthday present with a 69-65 win at the WISE Arena.
