The league title is back up for grabs following Feltham Warriors U18s' brilliant 92-75 win over leaders Kingston Wildcats on Saturday.
A close game was expected from the top-two clash, so it came as some surprise even for Feltham as they romped to a 17-point victory.
But coach Alan Keane put it down to the attitude, desire and intensity showed by his youngsters.
He said: "They got it spot-on in what could be the most important game of their young playing careers.
"Right before the game it was clear to see all 10 players had a focus and look in their eyes, and that they were ready to play and take control on their home court."
KC Onwuka typified Feltham's determination from the off with some fine block shots, while Cioke Fletcher commanded the rebounds at will.
At the other end, Kingston were no match for Feltham's scoring sensations Dominic Harriot and Junior Jack, who notched 38 and 28 points respectively.
With Omar Abdi steadying the ship at point-guard, and AJ Cheema, Ben Ohene and Nathanael Parchment contributing strongly off the bench, Warriors went in at the break 24 points up.
Kingston came out fighting, but an outstanding full-court pass from the youngest player in the side, George Mandro, set up another basket for Onwuka.
U16 star Ben Ohene showed why he's more than at home stepping up to U18 level with some fine play at both ends of the court.
Big scores from Parchment, Cheema and Abdi kept Feltham in front, and they saw out the game with some superb team play and ball movement.
Keane added: "This was an important win for us, but the attitude, desire, focus, chemistry and intensity we brought to this game goes beyond the scoreline.
"For the first time this year we played as good as we could from start to finish, and this stems from how we approach each game.
"KC Onwuka was really big for us, and his all-round play is improving game by game."
Meanwhile, the U16s landed the club's first piece of silverware for the season by winning a mid-season tournament at Windsor.
Ohene led the scoring charts throughout, while Joel Joseph, George Fletcher, Joe Pompilis and Shakir Rahim led the way for Feltham.
Having already played three games, fatigue set in during the final and it went down to the wire before Ohene fittingly settled it in the last minute.
Fletcher and Pompilis played with poise and leader-ship and Rahim was a giant in defence, while rebounding giant Dalvin Nyack and sharp-shooter James Richarsdon were on fire.
