BBL Cup quarter-final matchups confirmed

The matchups for the BBL Cup quarter-finals are now set after the final game of the group phase was completed on Monday night.

Plymouth Raiders, Manchester Giants and Newcastle Eagles were the three group winners, while defending champions Worcester Wolves joined Cheshire Phoenix and Sheffield Sharks in an early elimination.


Plymouth Raiders v London Lions, 16th December – 7pm

Newcastle Eagles v Bristol Flyers, TBC

Manchester Giants v Surrey Scorchers, 16th December – 7:30pm

Leicester Riders v Glasgow Rocks, TBC

There will be a separate draw for the semi-final ties, which will take place in January.

Of the eight remaining teams in the competition, London Lions are the most recent winners with their triumph in 2018 with Newcastle having taken the title on five occasions since the inaugural edition in the 2003-04 season.

Bristol Flyers made the quarter-finals despite having to forfeit their opening two games, resulting in 20-0 losses against Surrey Scorchers as they edged out Worcester with a seven-point victory last week.

In the final game that took place tonight, already eliminated Sheffield defeated a much-changed Leicester roster to ensure Newcastle finished as the winners of Group 3.
