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.
