Kapoulas - "I'm very proud of our team's efforts."

Andreas Kapoulas admitted he was very proud of his team's effort to make the semi-final of the inaugural Betway British Basketball All-Stars Championship.

Flyers beat Newcastle Eagles and Worcester Wolves to advance from the group stage before losing to eventual winners, London Lions at the penultimate hurdle.

The Betway British Basketball All-Stars Championship introduced some exciting new innovations as the top eight BBL teams compete for a record-breaking £100,000 prize fund.

Matches were just 12 minutes long with a 20-second shot clock, while an All-Star five-point line offered rewards for those willing to brave a shot from distance. Teams will also had a two-minute Power Play at their disposal, during which any points were doubled.

"It's was very different to what we're used to," Kapoulas told Bristol Flyers TV.

"It was great to see our team to make a run to the semi-finals - we showed a lot of class and great 
spirit and I'm very proud of the way the guys went around things today.

"Our focus now fully turns to the league, we've made very positive steps during pre-season and now is the time to put it all out there on the court."
