Newcastle Eagles underlined their dominance of the British Basketball League by completing a second clean sweep in four years with a 96-84 defeat of London Lions in the BBL Play-off Final at The O2 on Sunday, but it was a diminutive point guard who stole the show.
Eagles rode out a hot start from the hometown Lions, spurred on by a record crowd of 14,700, to seize control with an excellent all-round display capped by a 23-point, nine-assist and six-rebound MVP performance from Rahmon Fletcher.
The 5’10” guard crossed people up, dropped dimes and finished tough shots on his way to MVP and helped Newcastle to their fourth title this season.
