BBL 2015-16 Round Up: 9 April

Saturday night in the BBL Championship saw a shuffling of the pack in the top four as Leicester Riders and Worcester Wolves both bounced back from defeats.

Riders did so emphatically, to go clear at the summit of the table, as 20 points from Tyler Bernardini led them to a 77-56 win over Sheffield Sharks for an eighth-straight home success.

Wolves, meanwhile, took that opportunity to jump above the Sharks into third place in the BBL Championship, with an 82-77 defeat of Bristol Flyers courtesy of a second-half comeback and 16 points each for Pavol Losonsky and Perris Blackwell.

Leicester Riders 77 (16,33,51) (Bernardini 20, Gruis 15, Watson 15)
Sheffield Sharks 56 (17,30,41) (Tuck 22, Robinson 14, Odister 7)

Bristol Flyers 77 (23,43,58) (Streete 22, Seilund 20, Lee 11)
Worcester Wolves 82 (20,37,63) (Blackwell 16, Losonsky 16, Couisnard/Jordan 15)
