Basketball: Leopards and Sharks face fixture pile-up

Click to follow
Sheffield Sharks and the Leopards, who meet in next weekend's National Cup Final, have to fit in three more games each before then as the demands of the Budweiser League and League Trophy gather pace, writes Richard Taylor.

Leopards must bounce back from a 17-point defeat against London Towers tonight when they face Thames Valley Tigers, who want the former Derby and Hemel American, Jason Siemon.

Sheffield are away at Leicester City Riders, whose coach, Bob Donewald, has stripped their veteran guard Gene Waldron of the captaincy after the club ended a run of seven defeats with victory at Crystal Palace.
