I’ve been practising my five point shots - Falzon

Tevin Falzon says he’s been working on his five point shots ahead of Sunday’s British Basketball All-Stars Championship at the Copperbox Arena.

The day-long tournament returns for the second time this weekend, featuring a unique take on the standard rules of basketball.

Promoted by Matchroom Sport, the competition features an added All-Star five-point line and a two minute Power Play at their disposal, during which any points scored are doubled.

"I’m interested to see what it will be like,” Falzon told Bristol Flyers TV.

“Playing 12 minutes games with running clock and having a five-point line will be very interesting.

“It will definitely be fun and we’re going to go there trying to win it - that’s the goal for sure.

“We just need to play regular basketball and play as hard as we can. I’m sure there will be little adjustments that we are going to have to make. 

"We want to continue on what we have built and play our game the best we can.”
Flyers made the semi-finals of the competition last season
Last season Flyers made it all the way to the semi-final stage of the competition, before being knocked out by eventual winners, London Lions.

“When I saw that we were playing in this tournament, I was definitely practising my five-point shots,” Falzon joked.

“Me and my brother were practising over the summer, so I think I might have to pull one out!"

The second British Basketball All-Stars Championship will be available to watch LIVE on Sky Sports Arena and Sky Sports Mix this Sunday from 1-6pm (October 14th).
