Glasgow Rocks 77 (20,39,58) (Harrison 25, Green 15, Murray 15)

Jelson Homes DMU Leicester Riders 76 (18,34,54) (Cameron Rundles (185-PG-88, college: Wofford) 23, Hardy 21, Drew Sullivan (203-F-80, agency: Interperformances, college: Villanova) 15)

Glasgow Rocks waved goodbye to Kelvn Hall with a hard fought 77-76 win although it remains to be seen if it will be enough to help them reach the 2012 BBL Play-Off Final next weekend.

There was little to separate the teams during the initial exchanges with Riders 9-8 ahead after the opening five minutes of action which was dominated by both defences. Baskets by Bradd Wierzbicki and Drew Sullivan threatened to open up some daylight but it was the hometown Rocks who made the next decisive move.

Trailing by five points, they completed a 15-5 run either side of the first quarter break to move 23-18 ahead as they turned a five point deficit into a five point lead. EJ Harrison helped his team extend their advantage to seven points and it briefly looked like the game might get away from Riders.

However, they rallied and led primarily by BBL Team Of The Year member Cameron Rundles, Riders managed to make it a one-shot game at 37-34. But, the Rocks went into the locker room with the momentum once again after finishing with a flourish thanks to a big dunk by Gareth Murray (201-F-84, agency: Prossin Sports Management, college: Kalamazoo Valley CC).

The Glasgow club continued to hold the upper hand when the teams returned to the floor for the second half until the impressive Great Britain forward Drew Sullivan helped Riders level the scores at 41-41.

Any visiting fans hoping it would be the start of their team taking command were left disappointed as Rocks posted an impressive 15-4 run with a three-pointer by Andrew Wedemire giving the hosts a healthy double digit lead.

Once again however, Riders showed their resilience as they scored nine of the last eleven points in the quarter to claw their way back into the game heading into the final ten minutes with the Rocks advantage a more modest 58-54.

That lead was then wiped out completely when Cameron Rundles scored from downtown to tie the game up at 68-68 heading into a nervy finale. Riders briefly got in front and still led 74-73 with just over 90 seconds remaining after free-throws by Bradd Wierzbicki.

But, a couple of baskets by the influential Murray in the closing moments helped the hosts take a slender lead into what promises to be a fascinating second leg.

EJ Harrison led the way for Rocks with 25 points having shot a breath taking 73% from the field while backcourt partner Mychal Green had 15 points and seven assists.

Ayron Hardy (195-F-88, college: Jacksonville) and Drew Sullivan both posted impressively efficient scoring nights for Riders with Cameron Rundles top scoring with 23 points.

In the third and final game of 2017's Celtic Clash, Scotland Senior Men returned to Oriam to challenge a Wales squad who had just come off a tough 85-55 loss to Ireland a day earlier.
