Nigel Lloyd - Lloyd took over as head coach in 2015 and guided the Lions to a sixth-placed finish last season. A recent head coach of the Barbados national team, Lloyd is no stranger to winning in the BBL as a former league MVP during his playing career.

ONE TO WATCH
Rashad Hassan - The American forward is second in the league in scoring, averaging 18.2 points pr game - Hassan had a game-high 24 points when the teams met earlier in the season.
