Sharks coach Atiba Lyons has told The Star that point guard BJ Holmes will be back in Sheffield in time for the club’s next match against London Lions at the EIS on January 31.

Holmes has returned to America and missed Sharks BBL Trophy victory at Reading Rockets on Sunday. The Trophy quarter-final draw has handed Sharks a long journey to Plymouth Raiders.

The 2014 BBL Trophy quarter-final draw:

Newcastle Eagles v London Lions or Worcester Wolves

Plymouth University Raiders v Sheffield Sharks

Manchester Giants v Glasgow Rocks

Cheshire Phoenix v Bristol Academy Flyers

All quarter-final ties will take place during mid-February, with the detailed schedule of game days and tip-off times to be confirmed soon.
