One Health Sharks Sheffield 76 (14, 32, 52) (Tuck 20, Patton 18, Babalola 17)

Glasgow Rocks 83 (22, 41, 60) (Green 18, Garrison 15, Murray 13)

Glasgow Rocks secured themselves fifth spot in the BBL on Friday night as they overcame One Health Sharks Sheffield 83-76 at the EIS. Despite the defeat, Sheffield's playoff spot was confirmed as Cheshire Jets defeated Prestige Homes MK Lions 95-78 elsewhere.

Mychal Green (193-G-83, college: Ohio) led the Rocks scorers with 18 points and also dished up 7 assists while his teammate Andrew Wedemire got a double-double of 12 points and 10 rebounds. Sheffield's Mike Tuck led all scorers with 20 points and also grabbed 10 boards.

The opening minutes of the game saw Sheffield open up a 9-8 lead, with 4 of Glasgow's points coming off fast breaks as Mychal Green and Sterling Davis picked up steals. Mychal Green then scored another 2 points off a Sharks turnover to spark a 22-7 run that continued into the second stanza and finished with the Rocks up 30-16. The rest of the half saw more even scoring as the teams traded baskets before Sheffield scored the final 6 points of the quarter, 5 of them scored by Ryan Patton, to head into half-time tailing 41-32.

The Rocks came out of the half strongly, making 4 of their opening 5 third period shots to take the lead to a game-high 17 points at 50-33. 2 three pointers from Nathan Reinking (188-G-73, college: Kent St.) helped Sheffield find their range and they managed to put together a 15-2 run that had them back within 4 points of the Rocks at 52-48.

However, the Rocks scored the last 4 points of the quarter to make it 60-52 and continued the run in the fourth to lead 66-55 with 5 minutes remaining. Three pointers from Ryan Patton and Nathan Reinking had the score at 68-63 with 3:51 remaining but neither side was able to keep the other from making their shots in a period that saw 7 shots and 5 free throws sink without a miss before Ryan Patton missed a 3 with the Rocks 77-70 down. Mychal Green's miss for Glasgow immediately afterwards would prove to be Glasgow's last miss of the game as 4 EJ Harrison points and 2 Gareth Murray free throws was enough to see out an 83-76 victory.

The final game and main event of Day 2 of our last event of the season, the SBC Playoff Finals, was our Senior Men's Playoff Final between the League and Cup Champions Sony Centre Fury, and last years League and Playoff Champions Boroughmuir Blaze. It was Blaze who drew first blood in this one, taking a quick 5-0 lead in the game. It wasn't to last for long though as Fury quickly reversed the lead and before we knew it these teams began to trade basket for basket running up the score in a...   [read more]

Fury storm out of Mariner and on to Playoff Finals - 2 months ago
We headed to the Mariner Centre for one last time on Friday night for a Playoff Semi-Final between Sony Centre Fury and Glasgow Storm. With a Finals spot up for grabs, there was plenty at stake for both teams. Storm showed some nerves in the first quarter, getting off to a really slow start. Falkirk were able to capitalise on this with Keith Bunyan (191-G-77) lighting up behind the arc. Fury worked the ball well as a team and made Glasgow Storm work for extended periods on the defensive e...   [read more]
