THE defending Budweiser League champions, Thames Valley Tigers, joined the group of teams at the top of this season's table with an 81-56 win over London Towers last night. Eight first-quarter points from the American forward Tony Holley helped them to a 20-9 lead, before they stretched their advantage to 38-20 at the interval. London rallied briefly in the third quarter, but Tigers pressed home their advantage with style, scoring 25 points in the closing eight minutes.
