What they said:

“It was a great team performance tonight. Everyone had a role to play and fantastic support from the Eagles fans. Plenty of smiles on the and off the court,” – Drew Lasker, Eagles guard.

“Two games in two days is tough, but we managed to grind one out [on Friday] and grind another one out [at home] and things are starting to come together and find our feet with each other. With Jalan out, I had to step up. Thankful to my team-mates for getting me the ball and to my coach for trusting me and giving me the confidence to go out there and play,” – Lewis Champion, Flyers guard.

“It was so tough coming off a road game [on Saturday]. It’s hard on a back-to-back, we knew we had to come into the game mentally strong. It’s still early days and it’s better to face adversity now see where we can improve and get better through the season,” – Ashton Khan, Phoenix captain.

Meanwhile, London Lions moved to a 3-1 start with a 73-80 win on the road over DBL Sharks Sheffield, who bounced back to defeat Cheshire Phoenix 61-78 on Sunday, behind 22 points from Dirk Williams.

Ben Thomas’ Nix had impressed in a 94-116 victory over Surrey Scorchers less than 24 hours earlier as the trio of Jordan Session, Daniel Norl and Momcilo Latinovic starred in their side’s third win of the campaign.
