Leicester Riders face another three game week in the BBL and FIBA Europe Cup this week as the team play host to Falco Vulcano in FIBA Europe Cup, travel to Bristol to face the in-form Flyers for the first time this season and then return to Leicester to face the Eagles on Saturday night.
First the Riders will take on Falco Vulcano in FIBA Europe Cup on Wednesday night at the Morningside Arena in Leicester at 7pm. On the road the Riders draw close to Falco throughout the game, falling just short in the final minutes. On home soil the Riders will be looking to overcome the tough Hungarian side and get back to winning ways.
On the road the Riders will face the Flyers on Friday night in the BBL in front of a sold out SGS Wise Arena where Bristol have already made some noise in the league this season.
With key additions Fred Thomas and Justin Grey, the Flyers have started the season 5-1 sitting second in the league and will prove a tough test on the road in the middle of a busy schedule.
The BBL Cup then begins for the Riders with the Newcastle Eagles coming to the Morningside Arena. The Riders were able to perform well on the road, despite being short handed, but the Eagles will be looking to come back from the loss to test the Riders once more.
