Manchester Giants rounded off their pre-season schedule with a 97-80 win over Manchester Magic.

The wait is over for Danny Byrne’s men, who start their British Basketball League campaign with a trip to Sheffield Sharks on Friday night.

They finish pre-season with a decent record of five wins from six games, the only defeat coming at Cheshire Phoenix.

Having beaten Magic at home on Sunday, they made it a double in the Battle of Manchester at the Manchester Basketball Centre.

Willie Clayton, who only featured for 12 minutes, once again posted impressive statistics, including 100% field goal accuracy for 14 points.

Callum Jones top-scored for the Giants with 19, and Mike McCall registered 17.

James Jones landed three three-pointers from five for 11 points, and Torry Butler, Barry Webster and Vlatko Granic all hit double figures in points, with Webster also registering four blocks and two steals.
