Gettys: Cup victory was for the Cheshire Phoenix fans

Cheshire Phoenix made history with their first-ever BBL Cup title and first piece of silverware in over a decade as they overcame Worcester Wolves in the Final at Arena Birmingham.

“It means more to me to get this win for the club and fans than it does myself,” began C.J. Gettys.

The dominant centre stuffed the stat sheet, amassing 19 points, 8 rebounds and 3 assists to help lift Cheshire to victory.

“Entering the game we were confident in our game plan.

“It was a simple one at that: to play together as a unit and win the hustle plays.

“We did exactly that for pretty much the three quarters of the game.

“They got out to a fast start but we knew that we had to play harder & we did.”
