The British Basketball League will pay tribute to legendary former coach Kevin Cadle, who passed away this week.

Cadle coached in Manchester in the mid-1980s and finished his career with an astonishing 80% win record from 496 matches as a coach.

In total, he won each trophy five times in the BBL (plus a Cup title in the season before the inaugural BBL campaign). Cadle oversaw a jaw-dropping period of dominance at the helm of Glasgow and Kingston between 1988 and 1992, when he masterminded a stellar run which collected 14 out of the 15 pieces of silverware on offer.

All BBL games this weekend will be preceded by a 24 second applause immediately prior to tip-off.

Giants CEO John Dwan said: “Kevin made a huge contribution to British basketball and is significant part of the history of our club and others.

“He was a popular and well loved individual who leaves a huge mark on the game in this country.”
