In the first of a new feature, we will be looking back at the last week in the BBL and bringing you the best and most memorable quotes. This could be from the club themselves, players, pundits or coaches.

This is going to be a regular feature on BBLFans, so let you know if you have heard some interesting thoughts from someone so they can feature here next time.

This week, Matt Scheck looks for Cheshire to turn on the style at home, Sterling Davis targets 1st position and we bring you the best from the world of Twitter! Enjoy!

“There are so many games left and they are coming thick and fast. We need to focus on what’s ahead of us, not what’s been done, however great. The key thing is for us to remain focused and healthy.” Marjon Plymouth Raiders coach Gavin Love

“I made the decision not to play him on Sunday. He wanted to play but I thought his confidence might have been knocked a bit and he would have been wary of opening up the wound.” Worcester Wolves coach Paul James on the fitness of Carlos Fernandez who could return to action this weekend

“It will be good to see them so soon. There is a sense of revenge but we just want to get the win. All the games at this stage of the season are huge. There’s no time to have an off night against any team.” Sheffield Sharks centre Mike Tuck on meeting the Mersey Tigers this weekend, the team they lost to last Friday

“We normally get a coach ride and arrive at least two hours before tip-off. We relax for about an hour, then get onto the court. We just get the players to try and relax as much as they can and get their mindset right.” Guildford Heat coach Creon Raftopoulos gives some insight on away games

“If we come out on our home court and try to establish ourselves we’ll be fine. We just have to assert ourselves a little bit. We need to focus more on ourselves than who we are playing.” Cheshire Jets’ Matt Schneck is ready for this weekend’s home clash with Plymouth

“We are one of the teams in the league who are chasing them and it is important to get wins against a team you are chasing. But there is still a long way to go, we just have to hope we are getting into a rhythm and let the chips fall where they may.” Leicester Riders coach Rob Paternostro talks up his team’s chances at league leaders Newcastle

“I’d love to be first! I’m not content with anything less than that. Whoever we draw in the play-offs, my main concern is how we perform. If we perform to the level I know we are capable of doing, I think we have a good chance of making a good run towards the end.” Glasgow Rocks player / coach Sterling Davis is an ambitious man
