We’ve come a long way - Edozie

Daniel Edozie believes Bristol Flyers have come a long way after helping the club secure their highest-ever finish in the BBL Championship.

Sunday’s 87-105 victory over Manchester Giants marked end of the Flyers’ fourth regular season campaign in the top flight, claiming the sixth seed heading into this weekend’s play-off quarter-final against Newcastle Eagles.

Edozie joined the Flyers in 2015 and has since helped the club reach the postseason twice in the last three years.

"It just goes to show that the Bristol Flyers are making progress,” he told the club’s official YouTube channel.

"This is my third year with the team and we're starting to finish higher in the table, which is great for the programme, for the players and for Bristol Sport.

History is not on the Flyers’ side entering the play-offs, having never beaten Newcastle Eagles in the 16 meetings between the two teams since 2014.

Flyers staged a remarkable 30 point comeback when the sides met in the play-offs last season, only for their efforts to fall short on the road, losing on aggregate 181-176.

"That’s basketball for you, you never know when a team may make a comeback, but that’s why we love this game,” Edozie added.

"It’s just a matter of showing up from the beginning. Our plan is to go out there and win both games.
With recent talks surrounding the format of the BBL play-offs, Edozie believes that having the second leg at home could be the difference maker, with another sellout crowd at the SGS College Arena anticipated.

"Just playing in front of the home crowd with the intense energy and passion that they have - us as players, we feed off of that,” Edozie explained.

"I think everybody is geared to go, we’re hungry for the play-offs and it’s going to come down to who wants it more.”

Limited tickets for the BBL play-off quarter-final second leg against Newcastle Eagles are still available to buy online.
