Leicester Riders centre Barry Lamble says the signing of Great Britain skipper Drew Sullivan has been a major factor in the team's impressive form.

Riders sit fourth in the BBL Championship table having won five of their six league games this season.

Lamble told BBC Radio Leicester: "Drew is really helping us come along as a team and individually.

"We have so many players who are so smart on the court with their basketball intelligence."

Leicester, who this week announced a new sponsorship dealexternal-link with multi-million pound Leicester-based companies, Anand International and Daewoo International (Europe), recovered from their BBL Cup exit against Newcastle to thump Durham Wildcats 97-64 last week.
