Sharks coach Atiba Lyons has been rewarded for his team’s excellent recent form by being named Molten BBL Coach of the Month for November.

Lyons led his team to six wins from seven matches during the month, a run which sees them just two-points off the top of the BBL Championship and holding a three-point lead heading into the second leg of the BBL Cup semi-final against Newcastle Eagles.

Sheffield’s only loss during the month was away at London Lions. Sharks began December with victory at Surrey United on Sunday and travel to Plymouth Raiders this Sunday.
