Leicester Riders grabbed victory over the Surrey Scorchers in the BBL Championship to move ahead of Newcastle Eagles in the Championship table.

The Riders took a huge 92-61 victory over the Scorchers at the Leicester Sports Arena to improve to the top spot of the BBL Championship for the first time since the early stages of the season.

The home team came out on fire with a huge 33 point first quarter and a 21 point lead after the first ten minutes thanks to quick scoring from Wright, Sullivan and Watson.

The home side Riders continued to push the ball and up their defence in the second period to drive the lead further, up to a 40 point lead at the half. The second half saw much of the same as the Riders completed a strong team performance to seal the victory.

Riders join sporting neighbours Leicester City Football club as they move to the top of the BBL table with seven games remaining but due to a very hectic final couple of weeks in the BBL Championship it is all still to play for!

Riders travel to Worcester on Friday before returning home to face the Raiders a the Leicester Sports Arena on Sunday 3rd April!
