What is the BBL

There are 12 British Basketball League teams from across the nation, all competing for four possible pieces of silverware: Championship, play-offs, Cup and Trophy.

The Championship winners are those that come out on top of the league table at the end of the season which this season was the Leicester Riders.

The top eight teams from the table then enter the end-of-season play-offs, culminating in today's final at the O2 Arena.

The BBL Cup is a knockout competition and was won by the Newcastle Eagles in January.
