Lions kept their confidence up from their Betway British All Stars Championship win at the O2 Arena with an impressive win at the University of Worcester on Friday night.

The visitors led from start to finish with scoring spread around and five players in double figures.

Justin Robinson and Demonte Flannigan led the charge in the first half, with Momcilo Latinovic and Mo Lanegger oozing class in the second.

Lions edged each of the first three quarters by two points, before breaking clear with a decisive 11-0 run in the finnal period to open up a commanding 83-68 advantage with 2:22 left on the clock.

Robinson finished with 15 points, five assists and four steals on his BBL debut, while Flannigan shone with 19 points from 8 of 12 shooting.

Lions: Flannnigan 19, Robinson 15, Latinnovic 14, Lanegger 11, Isenbarger 10, Hall 8, Guede 5, Lockhart 4, Peel 2, Ikhinmwin 0, Roberts, James.
