Justin Gray
Bristol Flyers (14-18) hopes of making the playoffs were dashed at the hands of London City Royals, 84-83, Friday afternoon in tense final seconds of the British Basketball League. The Flyers took the lead with 90 seconds to play, 77-75. Royal's Wes Washpun responded with a huge three for the visitors and London City survived a frantic final possession as Coach K's men fell short. With the clock against them, the Flyers put together out one more defensive stop, to give Bristol an opportunity to win the game with 10 seconds to play. The Flyers came up with the loose ball and missed a lay-up and a tip in attempt as the horn sounded. The bitter nature of the loss reinforces the context of the result, which sees Flyers eliminated from play-off contention. Justin Gray had 17 points including 8-9 from the charilty stripe in the loss. The Flyers wrap up the regular season on Friday as they host the worst team in the league, Surrey Scorchers.
