BBL Play-Off Round Up : Sat 13 April - Apr 14, 2013

The Jelson Homes DMU Leicester Riders - BBL regular season champions - are through to the BBL Championship Playoff semi-finals after overcoming the London Lions 73-61 on Saturday night, beating them 143-129 on aggregate over two legs.

A dominant final fifteen minutes saw the Riders through in what was otherwise a tight encounter throughout. Anthony Rowe led their scoring with 24 points and 9 rebounds, and over the two legs he scored 40 points and snatched 17 boards. Drew Sullivan was his main support in the second leg, adding 23 points, 7 rebounds and 4 assists in a fiery second leg performance; the pair combined for two thirds of Leicester's points on the night.

The Lions, trailing 70-68 from the first leg, actually took an aggregate lead in the first half as they kept the Riders to just one basket in a six minute spell and led 22-27 after 8 straight points, including 4 for Mike Martin and another Lawson triple, to lead 22-27 and take the lead on aggregate. Rowe, with an 'and-one' play, broke the Riders' bad spell in style and when Sullivan matched that feat soon afterwards they tied the game at 29. And that proved the spark for the hosts as they scored 6 of the last 7 points in the first half, another 4 for Sullivan, to lead 35-31 at the break.

The Lions had the lead again on the night in the third quarter, but would never lead again on aggregate. From 39-40, Rowe was there to immediately put the hosts back in the ascendancy, and Sullivan added a triple to re-establish a 44-40 lead. The Lions came back to tie once more, but a buzzer-beating three-pointer from Zaire Taylor sent the Riders into the fourth defending a 50-45 advantage. Crucially, the Riders showed their Championship calibre as they scored the opening 6 points of the fourth quarter, 5 for Rowe, to make the lead double-digits on the night at 56-45. More importantly, the Lions were not allowed to score for the first five minutes of the fourth, a total of six and a half minutes including the closing stages of the third, as the lead reached 58-45 on Sullivan's basket, from where the Lions could find no way back.

Elsewhere, the Worcester Wolves take a one possession advantage into the second leg of their BBL Championship Playoff quarter-final after beating the Surrey Heat 81-78 in the Midlands, after a fourth quarter fightback. The teams were barely separated in fourth and fifth in the BBL Championship table, and had previously been involved in two close games this season. The Heat host the second leg on Sunday, having beaten the Wolves by two in the South East earlier in the season - a result they will need to better. Alex Owumi (196-G-84, college: Alcorn St.) led the Wolves with 22 points, 6 rebounds and 5 assists, supported by 16 points from Arturas Masiulis. Travis Holmes led the Heat with 22 points and 7 steals.

The visiting Heat had much the better of the first half, as they rattled off an 11-0 burst including a Travis Holmes triple and 5 points from Chavis Holmes in a minute, to lead 5-13. The Heat started the second quarter in a similar fashion, quickly sending their lead into double-digits as they scored the first 7 points of the period, five more for Travis Holmes and two more for Chavis Holmes as they equally shared 16 of the Heat's first 21 points. The first half lead reached its peak midway through the second as Albert Margai hit a three-pointer for 20-34 with 3.40 to play in the half, but it was trimmed to 33-37 after 8 points from Alex Owumi kept the Wolves in touch.

The Wolves had much the better start to the third quarter to provide a hint as to what would come: an early 10-2 run saw back-to-back three-pointers from Stan Ocitti to give them their first lead since the opening minutes of the game at 47-46. But it didn't last as the Heat responded with the next 9, including 5 for Travis Holmes whose triple capped the run at 47-55. Sherrad Prezzie-Blue (180-PG-86, agency: Pro Partner Sports Management, college: Wentworth) ended the third with a three-pointer and that helped to swing the momentum in the crucial last ten minutes. Stan Ocitti's triple got it to within one possession at 64-67 and the game's deciding spell came when Owumi added a three-pointer with 5.51 to play, followed by a pair of Prezzie-Blue free-throws to put the Wolves back in the ascendancy at 71-70. Five lead changes ensued over a nervous three minute spell, and the teams were tied at 75 heading into the final three minutes. Masiulis put the Wolves in front, for good, and Prezzie-Blue made it 79-75. Two free-throws from Chavis Holmes got it back to 79-78, but Masiulis scored the last basket of the first leg with 43 seconds remaining to leave it teetering at 81-78.
