The Friday Preview - Apr 19, 2013

The penultimate weekend of an already fabulous 2012-13 season, will see four teams battle it out for a BBL Play-Off Final place at Wembley Arena.

Four of the top five teams in the regular season made it safely past the quarter-final stage, with Marjon Plymouth Raiders hoping to upset BBL Championship winners Jelson Homes DMU Leicester Riders and Surrey Heat hoping to upset runners-up Newcastle Eagles.

The Riders will be favourites to advance as they continue their quest to seal a spectacular BBL treble, having already scooped the BBL Cup and the league title.

But, according to Raiders' Andrew Lasker (188-PG-82, college: Point Loma) he's just happy to see how the chips fall in what promises to be a fantastic two-legged tie.

"It doesn't matter since there's 80 minutes of basketball and that will prove who's the better team" said the guard.

And, having claimed a great road win at the Emirates Arena against Rocks in the last round before finishing the job on home soil, Lasker was dismissive of having to play at home first this time, before heading to Loughborough on Sunday.

"I'm not bothered who's at home first, we have the same goal as the previous round - to win both games.

"The better team will win the tie, that's what happened in the quarter-finals. The best four teams are left in and the best two sides will be in the final."

The Raiders were of course the only lower seeded club to prevail and interestingly, all three regular season fixtures ended up in home wins - the Devon club managing to come up with one of the paltry three losses Riders incurred during their wonderful title run.

With individual accolades for Riders' head coach Rob Paternostro and Drew Sullivan having been handed out this week, as well as places for other players in the various Teams of the Season, it's likely the favourites will be in bullish mood when they step out at the Pavilions tonight.

Surrey Heat have to do things the other way around by hitting the road first and heading up to the north-east this evening to take on Newcastle Eagles at Sport Central.

The Heat can draw real strength from the fact they have already won on the Eagles' home floor this season, although head coach Creon Raftopoulos is preferring his players only think about the basics and what has served them so well this term.

"We have to remind ourselves it's a long eighty minute game and we must stick to what has been working for us this season" insisted the play-caller.

"Sharing the ball and helping each other on defence is what we need if we are to have a chance of reaching Wembley."

The Heat showed great heart and spirit in their quarter-final clash with Wolves, at one stage falling 15 points behind in the tie during the second leg before producing a magnificent late fight back - something which will focus the minds of the Eagles for sure on Sunday night at Surrey Sports Park.

They are clinging to the last remaining piece of silverware in the cabinet from last seasons' clean sweep, with player-coach Fab Flournoy keen to lock down Holmes brothers Chavis and Travis, to give his team the best chance of making it to Wembley Arena next weekend.
