GB International, Ovie Soko had a winning start with the London Lions, British Basketball League Champions, as fans turned out in huge numbers to cheer him on.
Former Love Island friend and winner, Amber Gill, headlined a list of celebrities and musicians that packed court side to see the star dribble and dunk his way to a star performance in the Lions’ 88-72 win over the Glasgow Rocks at the Copper Box Arena based in the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.
“I normally visit the US and when I do, I watch the Orlando Magic” said Amber, “But this is thrilling! The guys are great, and it was awesome to see Ovie win”.
It wasn’t just Amber who clapped and cheered, hordes of existing and new fans gasped as Ovie threw some magnificent passes to two-time League MVP Justin Robinson with the Lions who were just too good for their opponents from the North.
Over 2,000 fans thronged the venue and most had a chance to take pictures and get autographs at the end. The word on the street is to get there early next time as the Lions have two more home games before Christmas as they seek to defend their title.
