Leeds Carnegie are through to their first National Trophy final after a 97-78 away victory over Leicester Warriors.

Leeds will face Reading Rockets in the final – a team that has convincingly beaten Carnegie twice this season.

The National Trophy is effectively the league cup for Division One and should Carnegie defeat Reading it would mark a clean sweep of England basketball league cups for Leeds and head coach Matt Newby, who have previously won the Division Two Patrons Cup and Division 3/4 National Shield.

Division One top scorer Adrian Fenyn tallied 20 points for Carnegie, Shaun Clifford adding 11.

"It's been an amazing experience with these kids," said WWE superstars American Alpha tag team Jason Jordan and Chad Gable.
