ridersSoar Media would like to congratulate everybody associated with the Jelson Homes DMU Leicester Riders, who claimed their first-ever BBL Championship title on Saturday evening.

Rob Paternostro’s side have been trailblazers in the league this season, losing just two games in the BBL Championship all year. Winners of the BBL Cup in January, the Riders sealed the title in front of a packed John Sandford Sports Centre on Saturday night, following a 93-70 win over Durham Wildcats.

The title is Leicester Riders’ first since the club was established in 1967 – making them the oldest professional basketball team in the country.

The Riders bring their regular season to a close on Saturday 7th April at Loughborough University’s Sir David Wallace Hall, where they take on runners-up Newcastle Eagles.
