Martin is the key - Paternostro

Leicester Riders head coach Rob Paternostro has said his side's BBL tie with Scottish Rocks on Sunday will be a big test for guard Matt Martin.

The 23-year-old is charged with marking Rocks captain Rob Yanders.

Paternostro told BBC Radio Leicester: "He has to give us a solid performance in defence.

"It's not just about limiting Rob Yanders' numbers, I think it's more about containing him and not allowing him to get other people involved."

Paternostro added: "It's a game where they on paper have better guards but on paper we have better big men, so we'll see which side of the ball shows up for this one."
