Sheffield Hatters will face Loughborough Student Riders in the semi-finals of the England Basketball Final Fours on April 27, after remaining unbeaten throughout their season.

The Hatters completed their league campaign at the weekend, with a 104-80 victory over Sevenoaks Suns.

If Hatters beat their Loughborough Rivals at the Amaechi Basketball Centre, they will then face the winners of the other semi-final - either Nottingham Wildcats or Barking Abbey - in the VCARS.co.uk Division 1 Women Final on April 28.

Tickets are available for either day, priced £10 for adults and £5 for concessions.

A weekend ticket for both days is also on sale, priced at £18 and £8.

Tickets pre-booked in advance via the England Basketball Website are eligible for a discount.

Hatters’ U16s, meanwhile, stormed into the next round of the play-offs with a comfortable 104-45 win over Barrow Thorns on Saturday.

Seven early points from captain Georgia Gayle set the tone, and Hatters never looked like letting their lead slip.

Scorers: Georgia Gayle 38, Eleanor Goodwin 22, Grace Brownell 17, Jo Lowry 10, Grace Twomey 10, Millie Dooley 4, Courtney Bennett 2, Zoe Silcock 1.
