The Cheshire Phoenix won the BBL Cup for the first time since 2002 when they beat the Worcester Wolves 99-88 in the final at Arena Birmingham.
Malcolm Riley led Cheshire’s scoring with 26 points and Robert Sandoval and Tevin Falzon added 12 each.
Michael Ojo hit 18 for Wolves, who also had 16 points from Dallin Bachynski.
In the WBBL Cup final, Nottingham Wildcats won their first final at the sixth attempt, 70-66 over Caledonia Pride with Ashley Harris scoring 19.
There was little to choose between the Wolves and the Phoenix in a first half when Worcester’s big man Bachysnki had the better of his highly anticipated battle with Cheshire’s seven-footer CJ Gettys with 13 points.
In the second half, the growing influence of Cheshire point guard Sandoval started to become the deciding factor. He controlled the ball and also hit nine points in the third quarter as his team posted the game’s first 10-point lead (67-55) with a three from former GB international Devan Bailey.
