INGUS Bankevics and Stefan Gill led the Giants to a big win over the visiting Plymouth Raiders.

The two guards scored 20 and 18 respectively, with Gill chipping in with seven assists and seven rebounds.

But it was a team effort that gave the Giants what coach Jeff Jones called ‘our best performance of the season’.

The Giants made a hot start, taking the first quarter 31-15 and leading 49-34 at the half.

They were 73-55 up after three quarters and stretched their lead in the final period.

Five players were in double figures – Bankevics and Gill, plus Ben Eaves (13 and 10 rebounds), Callum Jones (12) and David Watts (12) – with Mike Bernard and Darren Best grabbing 9 apiece and Connor Murtagh hitting 7.
