Basketball: Sharks seek better spirit

JUST three weeks after winning the Uni-ball League Trophy, Sheffield Sharks' coach, Chris Finch, has blamed a lack of team spirit for a run of three defeats in four games which has knocked them out of contention for the Budweiser League title.

Sharks, who entertain second-placed Newcastle Eagles tomorrow, still have much to play for, though. Finch said: "We are trying to build up momentum for the play-offs. We need to come up with a better team spirit at the moment."
