Sheffield Sharks cup dream over

Sheffield Sharks have been knocked out of the British Basketball League Cup after their quarter final defeat against Bristol Flyers.

Despite a resurgence from Sharks MVP Mackey McKnight in the 4th quarter, the Flyers sank multiple 3-pointers to win 58-81.

Having previously been undefeated at home in the League Cup, the Sharks began strongly in the first half, but were behind 25-29 to the Flyers by the end of the 2nd quarter.

The Flyers dominated the second half of the game, gaining a 42-53 lead by the end of the 3rd quarter.

Whilst the Sharks’ Cup dreams are over, the Championship matches begin tomorrow where they will once again face the Flyers.
