Durham Wildcats claimed their first ever win in the BBL as they defeated Cheshire Jets 74-72.
Their key to victory was a second quarter blitz that gave them a 17 point half time cushion which proved too much for the Jets to pull back.
Despite being down 45-28 at the break, however, the Jets took the game to the wire, with the teams tied at 66-66 and 70-70 in the dying stages, before the Wildcats were able to snatch the win at the death.
It was Durham’s debut in the Championship, having lost their five previous games this season in the BBL Cup and BBL Trophy.
