Tigers won 108-90 to inflict Towers' first defeat of the season in domestic and European competitions. After a 10-0 second-quarter spurt, Tigers led until the end, holding on despite a late 14-1 run from London. Kendrick Warren top-scored for Towers with 27, while all five Tigers starters hit double figures.

Sheffield Sharks avenged their midweek defeat at Leicester Riders by returning to Loughborough University for a 99-90 win, after the home team led for the first three quarters. Terrell Myers top-scored for the Sharks with 30 points.

London Leopards' three-guard offence of Rashod Johnson, Rod Brown and Jason Kimbrough ran Birmingham Bullets ragged for a 101-87 win, while Nigel Lloyd's 20 points led Milton Keynes Lions to a 71-63 win at Manchester Giants. Kevin Wallace hit 20 in Brighton Bears' 83-74 victory at Derby Storm.
