Worcester Wolves were handed their biggest defeat of the season so far on Sunday whilst Leicester Riders returned to winning ways following two loses in a row.

Having just come up short on Friday to the Wolves, 104-100, Plymouth Raiders were keen to pick up their second win of the season in front of their home fans. Thanks to a combined 34 points from both Rashad Hassan and Tyrell Johnson, who also picked up a double-double with his additional 13 rebounds, Raiders were able to do just that, handing Worcester their biggest loss yet, 83-53.

In Glasgow, Leicester Riders also had their wishes come true, as having been handed two loses in a row, the Riders were hopeful of returning to their winning ways. Jesse Chuku’s 21 point performance and an additional 18 points and eight rebounds from veteran Andy Thomson ensured they did, as they emphatically defeated Radisson Red Glasgow Rocks, 66-88.
