Leicester Riders will travel to face Loughborough Student Riders on August 26th in professional level pre-season clash as the teams prepare for their seasons.
The two teams will face off at Sir David Wallace Sports Hall at Loughborough University to open the two team’s pre-seasons for which tickets are now on sale below.
The Leicester Riders side begin their preseason looking for top preparation ahead of a BBL title defence that starts at the end of September. The roster will feature two Loughborough Alumni, Tyler Bernardini and former sports scholar Conner Washington as well as high level professional players such as former Great Britain Olympian Drew Sullivan.
Head Coach Mark Jarram’s side will look to form a strong group of young players featuring a number key returning players form last season as well as a number of fresh faces for next year. The team’s success on the court last season means that they will take on tough opposition in the top flight Basketball England league, Division One.
