Leicester Riders coach Rob Paternostro says reaching the 20-win mark for the third time in four seasons is a wonderful reflection on the club.

Riders beat Plymouth Raiders 96-72 on Wednesday to go third in the BBL Championship table.

"It's been a great season, and great to work with these guys," Paternostro told BBC Radio Leicester.

"Getting to 20 [wins] means a lot. It's a testament to everybody at the club and what we've been able to build."

Riders play their final road game of the season at Worcester Wolves on Saturday, before facing newly-crowned champions Newcastle next week.

"They'll both be tough games, two teams who shoot the ball well, they're good teams," Paternostro added.

"It's a tough league, but we've had a good run and I'm proud of my guys."
