The BBL Cup Final is one of the highlights of the British Basketball calendar, and this year it is returning to the NIA in Birmingham, on the 13th January. 

It will be the Newcastle Eagles taking on the Jelson Homes DMU Leicester Riders, in what promises to be an epic showdown. What with the Riders having Great Britain Captain Dew Sullivan, and the Eagles having Fab Flournoy - the most successful coach in the history of the BBL, and reigning league MVP, Joe Chapman. 

Last season, the Eagles won the cup, having beat the Plymouth Raiders 115-94 in the final. 

As well as the final showcase in January, there will also be international basketball, with the England Select team, taking on the Ireland Superleague Select team. 

Following that, will be the BBL Dunk contest, where dunkers from all over the country will battle it out for the Slam Dunk title.
