Leicester Riders progress to the BBL Play-off Semi-Final next week with a 94-58 victory over the Surrey Scorchers in the second leg of the Quarter-Final.

The tie was evenly poised after Friday’s away leg, but the league champions produced a great first ten minutes to lead the game early and never look back on their home floor to advance.

Tyler Bernardini, Conner Washington and Andy Thomson all poured in 14 points apiece with five players in total reaching double figures in a balanced attack.

The game was tied at 10-10 early on before the Riders made their move with a 10-0 run and established a 28-12 advantage after 10 minutes.

Leicester’s lead continued to grow with a 14-2 start to the second and they were 26 points ahead at the half-time break. The gap reached 30 points heading into the fourth and they closed out the game in a convincing manner to advance.

Tickets will be available to buy online soon for the BBL Semi-Final home leg which will take place on May 7th at Leicester Arena!
