Hassan steers Leicester to win

Leicester Riders consolidated third spot in the BBL standings on Saturday night with a 74-55 triumph over second-bottom Surrey United.

Rashad Hassan poured in 27 points for the winners, with Ceslovas Kucinskas' 19-point haul not enough to keep the visitors in the game.

Elsewhere, fifth-placed London Lions were 93-89 winners at rock-bottom Birmingham Knights, Jason Davis leading the way with 21 points and ensuring Brent Benson's 23-point contribution was in vain.

Finally, sixth-spotted Cheshire Phoenix saw off Plymouth University Raiders 92-84, spurred by 22 points from Victor Moses.
