Well what a day this turned out to be? It has to be said that you could have gotten unbelievable odds on these two teams competing for the BBL Play-Off Final for 2010. By all accounts the Newscastle Eagles and the Sheffield Sharks, the top two in the BBL this season were odds on to be here. But neither could get past their Semi-Final opponents.
The BBL Championship is the flagship competition of the British Basketball League and features all member teams playing a 33-game regular season, from September to April. Matches are played according to FIBA rules and games consist of four-quarters of 10 minutes each. Two points are awarded for a win, with overtime used if the score is tied at the final buzzer – unlimited numbers of 5-minute overtime periods are played until one team is ahead when a period ends.
