Rodman back for Brighton double
Dennis Rodman enters the court
Rodman helped Brighton sell out the Burgess Hill Triangle
Basketball legend Dennis Rodman will play two matches in as many days for Brighton Bears next week.

Rodman, 44, will line up against Newcastle Eagles at the Brighton Centre on 14 February and then face London Towers at Crystal Palace the next day.

Brighton Bears head coach Nick Nurse insisted there had been an overwhelmingly positive response to the 6'7" forward's return.

"The fans wanted to see him again and so we are obliging," said Nurse.

"In the end, it was an easy decision for us to make although we wanted to canvass our fans first to gauge what they wanted."

Rodman scored four points on his debut for the Bears as they defeated the Guildford Heat 91-88.

Nurse added: "Dennis could not have done any more for us on Saturday. He was absolutely superb and I think he enjoyed the experience and the reception he got.

"We could have sold out the Triangle eight, or maybe 10, times over so I hope those fans who were disappointed on Saturday will now have the chance to see one of the legends of the game in action."
