Coach James crowned Molten Kevin Cadle BBL Coach of the Month

Head Coach Paul James has been named the Molten Kevin Cadle BBL Coach of the Month after guiding his team through a flawless December.

The play-caller made the most of home comforts during the period as Raiders racked up four wins at the Pavilions, tipping off their impressive unbeaten spell with a 94-79 success against Cheshire Phoenix.

They were they put to the test in a historic fixture which witnessed the first ever visit from the London City Royals and Raiders were up to the task as they claimed a hard-fought 84-77 triumph.

A hat-trick of wins in the BBL Championship was then notched up in style as the Devon franchise racked up their highest score of the campaign with a massive 115-100 victory against Surrey Scorchers.

Raiders then celebrated a fruitful finish to the calendar year with an 86-74 derby win against Bristol Flyers, which catapulted them into the BBL Trophy Quarter-Finals.

James had to fight off a strong claim from London Lions’ head coach, Vince Macaulay to land the accolade.
