The Weekend Wrap Week 12

  Monday, December 11, 2017

Stefan Gill returned from his three-game suspension with a bang, pouring in 25 points to lead the Manchester Magic to the National Cup Final after an 80-74 victory at Team Solent Kestrels.

Magic's captain was backed up by Donte Gittens (18 points) and Ryan Lewis (11 points and 11 rebounds), with all 5 starters hitting double figure as Michael Anumba had 12 points and Lee Goldsbrough 10 points.

Magic will have to wait to find out who their opponents in the final will be as the other semi-final between Hemel Storm and Loughborough Student Riders was called off due to the weather.

Magic are in action on Friday night in the BBL Trophy as they travel across the Pennines to face DBL Sheffield Sharks at 7:30pm, before their last game of 2017 at home to Derby Trailblazers on Saturday (6:30pm).
