Leicester Riders will need to wait until tonight before finding out their opponents in the semi-finals of the BBL play-offs. Riders made it through from the quarter-finals when they narrowly beat the London Lions in both games, winning 143-129 points on aggregate. The only other tie decided at the weekend was the fourth/fifth place tie – when Surrey Heat prevailed over the Worcester Wolves. The Wolves won at home by three, but Surrey won by six at home on Sunday, winning the tie 154-151. Second-placed Newcastle Eagles will take a 15-point lead to Sheffield for their match-up with the Sharks tonight and remain favourites to progress. Sixth-place Plymouth Raiders shocked the third-placed Glasgow Rocks in Scotland yesterday winning 82-71 and will be favourites to progress when the same two teams meet tonight, in Plymouth. Riders will face the lowest placed team to progress, which could be Sheffield, Plymouth or Surrey – with the likelihood now Plymouth. Riders' home leg will be played next Sunday at Loughborough University (4.00) irrespective of the opposition because as it has been selected as the Sky TV live game for next weekend.
