Glasgow Rocks 72 (19,34,51) (Danny Huffor (193-G, college: Newberry) 19, Green 15, Deaundre Cranston (206-F-88, college: Mississippi) 14)

One Health Sharks Sheffield 64 (16,32,47) (Nathan Reinking (188-G-73, college: Kent St.) 21, Justin Dobbins (203-C/F-87, agency: I.D.S. Law, college: E.Michigan) 15, Tuck 10)

A near double-double by Danny Danny Huffor helped Glasgow Rocks bounce back from successive losses and post an important 72-64 success against play-off rivals One Health Sharks Sheffield.

Danny Huffor scored 19 points and pulled down 9 rebounds at Kelvin Hall to inflict a fifth league loss of the season on the Sharks.

The hosts started strongly with eight of the first ten points in the contest which gave them some early confidence and while Sharks tied the game up shortly before a dunk by Justin Dobbins put them 14-12 in front, Rocks finished the period as they started.

A triple by Gareth Murray helped them to a 19-16 first quarter lead and when Danny Huffor scored five points in a row early in the second period, the Rocks found themselves with an eight point advantage.

However, the Sharks then tightened their grip defensively by holding their hosts scoreless for almost six minutes and also posted a 12-0 run to move in front.

Thankfully for home fans, Deaundre Cranston finally broke the drought and with Mychal Green and Danny Huffor sharing eight points during the last 90 seconds of the half, Rocks held a slender 34-32 advantage heading to the locker rooms.

Both teams continued their struggle for supremacy during the third quarter and it was still the Rocks who prevailed at 51-47 heading into the final quarter where they would eventually make a decisive break.

Still in control at 63-56 with four minutes remaining, the hosts scored seven points without reply and that effectively sealed the win - despite being without the services of experienced duo Sterling Davis and EJ Harrison.

At least the Coach Davis will have gleaned satisfaction from seeing his side win again having lost three of their last four games and it was a solid and efficient contribution by Deaundre Cranston which went a long way to securing victory.

Nathan Reinking top scored in the game with 21 points for the losing team while Mike Tuck claimed a double-double of 10 points and 16 rebounds.
