Newcastle Eagles have been crowned British Basketball League champions for the sixth time after beating Surrey United this afternoon.
The Eagles won 106-58 in their final Championship game of the season.
By Sunday the Eagles could, should and probably will be the champions of the British Basketball League.
Newcastle are in Birmingham on Saturday and Surrey on Sunday.
They're the league's bottom clubs and if, as predicted, the Eagles win both games they will clinch their fifth title in seven years.
Durham are also in action; they face Leicester on Sunday but the Wildcats' play-off status won't be decided until the Easter weekend.
