“I am so proud of this group who have shown incredible consistency throughout the season, with every player contributing and playing a huge part in this success,” Head Coach Matt Guymon said.
“To win a 3rd league title means so much to our organisation, sponsors and fan base and we hope to continue to build our momentum as we prepare for the playoffs.
“Finally I want to say a big thank you to Solent University and Kestrel Guards for their continued support for performance basketball.”
Solent claim the title with a 16-1 record, heading into this weekend knowing they needed 1 win from 2 games to seal the championship, as they round out their regular season campaign on Sunday against Essex Rebels.
Kestrels add the league title to their inaugural L Lynch Trophy title they claimed last month, to make it two pieces of silverware so far this season.
