Preview: Bristol Flyers v London Lions

Bristol Flyers v London Lions
BBL Championship
Saturday, April 16th
SOLD OUT

Bristol Flyers host London Lions in the last home game of the season on Saturday night (7.30pm).

All the key information on Saturday’s BBL opponents can be found below.

LONDON LIONS
Although Lions have already secured a place in the BBL play-offs, they could still finish anywhere between sixth and eighth so will not be short of motivation for Saturday’s game. Last season the Lions made it all the way to the BBL play-off final in front of a near 15,000 crowd at the O2 Arena, where they fell to the Newcastle Eagles 96-84

HEAD COACH
Nigel Lloyd – Lloyd took over the role of Head Coach for the Lions after Vince Macaulay opted to lift himself out of the coaching seat to focus on off-court activities. He recently coached the Barbados national team in the Caribbean Championships in the summer, and is no stranger to winning in the BBL. The former league MVP has taken a fresh look at the squad this season, with Joe Ikhinmwin and Blayne Freckleton being two of the few survivors of a radical cull which has seen a flood of new players arrive in the capital.

ONE TO WATCH
Nick Lewis – The 6’3″ dynamo was a huge contributor to the Sheffield Sharks over the last couple of seasons, before signing for the Lions in the summer. A member of the GB U20s team that qualified for Division A in the European Championships two years ago, Lewis has been a constant in the BBL, notably winning the BBL Trophy in 2013 and scoring a last second tip-in to help his side knock the Leicester Riders out of the BBL Play-Offs last season.
