Davie named Molten WBBL Coach of the Month for February

Durham Palatinates play-caller Lee Davie has been named Molten WBBL Coach of the Month for the second time this season.

Having also taken the December gong, the coach has scooped the award again after guiding Durham to yet another showpiece Final.

They will compete in the British Basketball Trophy Finals at the Emirates Arena in Glasgow on Sunday 15 March, having beaten Nottingham Wildcats by 92-82 in the Semi-Finals.

Davie also masterminded a WBBL Championship success against Essex Rebels when they outlasted their opponents 80-68, plus most impressively, finishing February with a flourish in the league by beating the title-chasing Leicester Riders by 77-68.

He just pipped Chris Bunten of Newcastle to the award, with the Eagles’ play-caller also registering a flawless 3-0 record.
