Newcastle Eagles have won a clean sweep in British basketball.
They won their fourth trophy of the season by beating Leicester Riders 71-62 in the BBL Play Off Final.
In a tense match the Riders had a 21-12 lead by the end of the first quarter.
The Eagles brought it back to 31-31 by half time and had got in front 56-49 by the end of the third quarter.
Missed free throws from the Riders and an excellent performance from Paul Gause for the Eagles were key.
Player coach Fabulous Flournoy was so committed that he ended up hurdling the Leicester bench late in the game as he tried to keep the ball alive.
And the Eagles commitment paid off as they claimed the BBL play Off title.
