Holmes snatches crucial win

BJ Holmes hit a last-gasp three-pointer to hand Sheffield a dramatic 94-92 win over Newcastle and maintain their challenge for the BBL title.

The Eagles held an 11-point lead with just four minutes remaining but the Sharks went on a 15-3 run and, despite the visitors regaining the lead in the final minute, Holmes struck to seal the win.

The result leaves the Eagles six points behind league leaders Worcester with a game in hand while Sheffield are two points further back having played two games less than the Wolves.
