Leicester Riders coach happy with win over Wildcats

Leicester Riders remain third in the BBL Championship after a comfortable 97-69 win away to Durham Wildcats.

Great Britain captain Andrew Sullivan topped the scoring for the Riders on Saturday with 18 points.

The victory comes after last weekend's 74-64 home win against Sheffield Sharks.

Head coach Rob Paternostro told the club website: "That was our third win in a row after losing two in a row and we just want to continue to build."

Paternostro said: "The phrase 'team basketball' sometimes is over-used but I thought today we certainly showed that from start to finish.

"Give them credit, they played right until the end. Our first unit did a heck of a job defensively and third quarter was as good as we've played on the defensive end all year and I was very happy with our guys and their effort."
