SHEFFIELD Sharks coach Atiba Lyons says you should never write off his side after a stunning victory in the BBL Trophy final on Saturday.

Sharks beat Leicester Riders 71-69 after losing their four previous meetings by an average of over 20 points.

He said: “It’s probably the sweetest yet (trophy win). We’ve been through so much adversity. We’ve been underdogs before but we’ve never been counted out of a game like this. People expected them to just walk through us.”
