  1. Capital rivalry is fine for Williams

    As things stand, London City Royals are 40 minutes of basketball away from a first appearance in a BBL final in their first season in the BBL. And that final would be against crosstown rivals the London Lions.

    Royals coach Junior Williams, 42, is determined to be cautious about this. "I don’t say we’re going to win this or that, but just from a coaching standpoint you just try to win every game and the chips can fall where they may after that." he told BBC Sport.

    The chance of a new rivalry in the capital is something that intrigues him. "It’s great for basketball in this country in general but it’s extra special for London basketball," he said.

    "It brings me back to when I first started watching and getting involved in basketball and watched the rivalry of [London] Towers and Leopards, so to have that would be amazing."

    One of the Royals' GB contingent giving the team good minutes this season is Will Neighbour, who is among the top five three-point shooters in the BBL and averages 13 points per game.

    "A lot of people have said that they’ve not seen him play this way before," said Williams. "He's shooting the ball well – as we know he can do - but he’s defending, he’s rebounding, he’s playing in the post, he’s doing a bit of everything."

  2. Preview: Glasgow Rocks v London City Royals

    BBL Trophy semi-finals, second leg - tip-off 17:00 GMT

    Glasgow Rocks welcome London City Royals in the second leg of the BBL Trophy semi-finals.

    London City Royals head into the Trophy semi-final second leg with a 20-point advantage over Glasgow following Tuesday’s 86-66 first leg home win at the Crystal Palace National Sports Centre.

    Unbeaten in league competition since the turn of the year, Glasgow’s only other defeat in 2019 came in the BBL Cup final against the London Lions.

    The Rocks extended their winning streak in the BBL Championship to four games with a win against Bristol Flyers last Sunday - watch that game again on the iPlayer here.

    Competing in their debut campaign, London City Royals have enjoyed an impressive start to their first season in the BBL and currently sit fourth in the Championship table, two points behind six-time champions Newcastle and with a game in hand.

    Royals and Rocks met in the only league game this season between the two in December, when London ran out winners by 14 points.
