Bristol Flyers claimed a clean sweep over the Plymouth City Patriots

Bristol Flyers claimed a clean sweep over the Plymouth City Patriots winning their final regular-season meeting 99-60.

Tevin Olison led six Bristol players in double figures with 23 points on 61% shooting, ably supported by Brandon Mahan with 19, which included five three-pointers.

Spurred on by a vocal crowd, Bristol jumped out to an 11-2 lead, capped off by back-to-back scores from VJ King.

Plymouth’s struggles continued in the first period. Unable to register a field goal in the first eight minutes until James Hawthorne Jr. connected.

The Patriots had missed their first 13 attempts until that score whereas the Flyers fared better, leading 25-7 after the first, shooting 45% from the floor.

Flyers were certainly comfortable in the second quarter, enjoying a 38-16 lead with 3:27 remaining thanks to a basket from Olison.

And the lead only grew larger at the half as the Flyers maintained their solid field goal percentage, while Plymouth shot 22% leaving them trailing 54-20.

Bristol seemed to be on cruise control in the third quarter, as the lead grew to 69-29, leading to a strong finish to the period from the visitors.

The Flyers though still led 71-40 after heading into the final quarter and secured a comfortable victory to stay second in the BBL Championship table.

Bristol Flyers will now have a weekend break, before returning to action on Friday, March 31st with a road trip to Leicester Riders.

They will then return to SGS to face the league-leading London Lions on Sunday, April 2nd. Tickets for this game are completely SOLD OUT, but fans will still be able to watch on the BBL YouTube channel.
