Leicester Riders excited ahead of BBL Cup Final

Leicester Riders take on arch rivals Newcastle Eagles, in the final of the British Basketball League Cup this weekend.

Head coach Rob Paternostro and experienced forward Andrew Sullivan are aiming high ahead of the tussle for silverware:

The big showdown will take place at Birmingham's National Indoor Arena on Sunday, where the Riders will be contesting their fifth major final in a row, after winning three out of four possible trophies last season.

They will also be looking for two BBL Cup victories on the bounce, after beating the Eagles 85 - 80 in a close-fought encounter in the same fixture last year.
