NEWCASTLE EAGLES
Despite being the most successful club in BBL history, the Eagles visit the WISE Arena off the back of two straight league defeats. Having completed a clean sweep of silverware last season, Newcastle currently find themselves sitting top of the BBL Championship, and have also retained their BBL Cup in front of a 10,000 strong crowd at the Barclaycard Arena earlier last month.

HEAD COACH
Fabulous Flournoy – A former player in the BBL with Birmingham Bullets, the 6ft 3in shooting guard was a student at NCAA Division one college McNeese State University. Flournoy joined the Eagles in 2001, and took on a new role of player/coach during the 2003-04.

ONE TO WATCH
Charles Smith - The 40-year-old BBL veteran leads the Eagles in scoring with 16.6 points per game coming off the bench. Smith has also won five Finals MVP awards - also tied with GB captain Drew Sullivan.
