Newcastle Eagles were presented with the BBL Championship trophy after the match against Mersey Tigers at Sport Central.
The Eagles were crowned champions on Wednesday night when Plymouth Raiders lost against Leicester Riders making the lead unassailable.
Player/head coach Fabulous Flournoy told Sky Tyne and Wear: “It is just a fantastic achievement for the club and another milestone.
“We need to be appreciative of it and we need to remember it and take it into the playoffs.”
The Eagles’ leading points scorer Joe Chapman lifted the trophy, a year after injury threatened to end his career.
Flournoy said: “Joe deserved it. To come back from where he was last season and to play on the level he is playing on now, he needs just a little thank you.”
