Charles Smith sank 37 points as Newcastle Eagles shaded Cheshire Phoenix 103-100 in a high-scoring clash in the BBL Championship.

Smith needed to be at his best to keep the Phoenix at bay, especially as they had Reggie Middleton in fine form, the Cheshire player scoring 39 points in a thrilling game.

Although he may have lost the scoring battle, Smith also pulled down 10 rebounds and dished out six assists in a brilliant individual performance.

In the BBL Trophy, Glasgow Rocks made it safely through to the BBL Trophy quarter-finals after defeating Leeds Carnegie 84-48 in a lop-sided contest.
