Basketball: Leicester Riders fans tell of cup joy
Chris Stone, 52 Oadby
"I thought we had blown it when it came down to 78-78 until that three-pointer from Zaire Taylor. I thought Drew Sullivan held us together throughout the game, he's a tremendous player. It's a wonderful day, a lot of these people come week in, week out and it means a lot to them. It's just a great day for the oldest club in British basketball."
Greg Ellis, 24 Wigston
"It was a really tight game. When it got close, the big players stepped up to make the big plays and that was the difference. When it got to 78-78, I was nervous."

"That was amazing, words cannot describe it. I didn't think we had lost it because you can never give up, never surrender. It was an absolutely amazing atmosphere. This definitely means we could go on and win more this season."
Joe Hawkins, 35 Leicester
"It was a brilliant game – I was worried that we might lose it in the end, but it was a brilliant finish to a brilliant game. Drew Sullivan was the one that got us going."
Dominic Stanford, 29 Coalville
"I brought my five-year-old daughter to her very first game and she absolutely loved it. I thought we might have lost it at the end there, but it was absolutely awesome."
Angie Stamford Coaville
"I am originally from LA and I really enjoyed it, it was really good. It's great to have the opportunity to watch basketball in this country."
Rachel Harvgreaves, 29 Glenfield
"What an incredible match! I thought we had it in the bag but when they brought it back I almost couldn't watch at the end. But all credit to Rob Paternostro and the guys, they did a great job. I'm sure this is the start of things to come."
