Head Coach Rob Paternostro was delighted to win it again!
“What a feeling. I am so proud of the guys and the effort. To play back-to-back games this weekend and to put on the performances like they did makes it special.”
Riders Captain Tyler Bernardini was of course pleased to seal his third BBL title.
“To win it (the BBL Championship) three times in a row is pretty incredible. It’s not usually done. To win this league is not very easy and we have done it this year, with this new group and I think a lot of people didn’t think we would be here.”
