Newcastle have already booked their place in one final this season and they now know when they’ll face Sheffield for a place in the BBL Trophy final.
The Eagles will travel to EIS Sheffield on Friday 3rd February, before hosting the Sharks in the return leg on Friday 10th February.
Fab Flournoy’s men will be looking to use the two-legged experience already gained from their cup victory over Leicester – where they drew 90-90 away from home before winning the second leg – to progress.
The Sharks have had an indifferent start to the season, immediately losing their grip on the BBL Cup, which they won last season.
Sheffield were the only club, other than the treble-winning Mersey Tigers, to pick up silverware in 2011.
As a result of the BBL Trophy fixture schedule, the Sharks’ game at the Plymouth Raiders on Sunday 11th December has been rescheduled for Saturday 10th March at 7:30pm at Plymouth Pavillions.
