Jordan Ratinho was the MVP for the Sheffield Sharks in their narrow defeat on Sunday.

Atiba Lyons’ side trailed for most of the game, but looked to have snatched a victory with 1.24 left on the clock as they took the lead for the first time.

It wasn’t to be, however, as the visitors fought back to claim a last-gasp 76-77 win that ended the Sharks’ six-game unbeaten run at home and put a dampener on the weekend following their good result a couple of days later. On a personal level, though, it was a strong showing from Jordan Ratinho, who hit a game-high 19 points.

On Friday evening, against the London Lions, they completed a comeback to take the game into overtime, and a free throw from Isaiah Reese secured the 78-71 victory for the hosts – Rodney Glasgow Jr walked away with the MVP award with his 12 points and and eight assists.

The Sharks remain in second place in the BBL table.
