Edinburgh Kings won a basketball double when they added the Scottish League Play-Offs crown to the league title they clinched at the end of March.

They defeated Falkirk Fury 89-69 in the final, pulling away with a strong 27-11 third quarter after a tight first half.

Latvian star Edgars Rekis was named MVP, scoring 24 points.

Edinburgh Kool Kats could not follow the men’s example however and went down 63-48 in the women’s final.

It was their third disappointment of the season having lost the Scottish Cup final and league to Rocks. Pentland Star beat Polonia Phoenix 82-40 in an all-Edinburgh Scottish Women’s Consolation final.

Sheffield beat Lothian Phoenix 62-49 in the wheelchair challenge.
