SHEFFIELD Sharks player-coach aired his frustrations with his team on Twitter after their humiliating loss against London Lions on Tuesday.

The Sharks threw away a 19 point lead late in the third quarter in the capital and ended up losing 78-70 to a Lions side that they could have leapfrogged in the BBL Championship table.

And with no match this weekend Lyons clearly felt the need to blow off a bit of steam and to reassure Sharks supporters that he wasn’t pleased with the way his team coughed up such a large advantage.

He posted: “Please note my players aren’t off the hook with this whole situation. To lose is tough to not lose as a team is inexcusable.”

Point guard Gage Daye was equally straight to the point. Daye battle foul trouble throughout the loss and wrote on Twitter: “Tough L (loss) tonight man.”
