- National Teams
Watch Leicester Riders take on Dinamo Sassari on the road in the FIBA Europe Cup live on Wednesday evening (7:30pm tip).
Riders will be short-handed – without Americans DeAndre Burnett and JR Holder, along with dual passport holder Kiefer Douser – after all three have suffered injuries, making the task even tougher. It is a must-win game, as Leicester need to win all three remaining games to have a chance of advancing.

The BBL champions dropped into the group phase of the competition following a two-legged defeat against Bakken Bears in the Basketball Champions League qualifiers.
