BBL 2015-16 Round Up: 19 February

There was drama everywhere you looked in the BBL Championship on Friday.

Overtime was required to separate Leeds Force and Bristol Flyers – and decide their season series.

Glasgow Rocks trailed until the final four seconds before some last-gasp heroics secured victory against London Lions and Esh Group Eagles Newcastle rallied from a losing position and scored the go-ahead basket with just 44 seconds remaining in their thrilling battle against Sheffield Sharks.

There was an important win for Worcester Wolves too, as they ended a tough week with a win against Manchester Giants.
