Worcester's star basketball team could be bringing home a trophy later today as they take on Newcastle Eagles in the BBL Play-Off final.
They will be playing at Wembley Arena with tip off starting at 3pm.
The coach of the Birmingham A's under 18s team that is though to the final of the national cup is proud of the hard work put in by the players, as they beat Lewisham Thunder in the semi-final.
Nigel Lawson says his team is determined to bring home the trophy.
The Birmingham A's under 18s basketball team are through to the Sureshot National Cup final, after they beat Lewisham Thunder by eight points.
Callum Lawson, who is also in the England under 18s national team, netted a number of three-pointers to help the A's to a 75 - 67 win.
The competition is the basketball equivalent of the FA Youth Cup, and they will take on a team from Newham (NASSA), in London, in the final in two weeks time.
Defending BBL Cup champions Leicester Riders knew what to expect against Newcastle Eagles, having beaten the same opposition by a five-point margin in the same fixture last season.
Their arch rivals will feel hard done by this time, after making a fist of it from the tip-off.
Veteran forward Charles Smith was a constant threat throughout - topping the score-chart with 27 points - to fire the Eagles into a 64 - 69 point lead with less than three minutes remaining on the clock.
But the Riders rallied as a team, snatching the cup from the Eagles grasp - a collective effort saw forwards Andy Sullivan and Jay Couisnard notch 19 and 18 points respectively - and in the final seconds, Couisnard scored two free-throws, to tip the scales in the Riders' favour and retain the cup.
