Jonny Bunyan returns for the Glasgow Rocks - Sep 12, 2012

Jonathan
Bunyan
Jonny Bunyan (182-PG-92), will return to the Glasgow Rocks for another season after an impressive debut with the club.

Jonny is widely recognised as Scotland's most promising point guard and proved his worth during the 2011/12 BBL season intermittently stepping into the role in the absence of Rocks import, EJ Harrison, who missed half the season due to injury. During his time on the court, Bunyan was very productive shooting 44% from the field including 38.1% from beyond the 3 point line. He also chipped in with 1.2 rebounds and 1.2 assists per game.

Coach Sterling Davis will be hoping to see Jonny continue his rise through the pro ranks and become an influential player within the Glasgow Rocks Franchise."JB showed a huge upside last season considering it was his first season in the BBL. What stuck out the most was his heart and willingness to not back down from anyone. When he came in the game teams definitely respected him which is a credit to his confidence in his ability."

Bunyan will also continue to play for his local National League Team, Clark Eriksson Falkirk Fury, and will be looking to lead them to a championship after narrowly missing out last season. Fan favourite, Jonny Bunyan had the following to say about his return to the Glasgow Rocks: "I am really excited about coming back to the Glasgow Rocks for the 2012/13 season. I enjoyed playing against the best players in Britain last year, and I can't wait to get back into it again. I have been working hard on all facets of my game during summer and feel confident that I can really contribute to the team throughout 2012/13."

Jonny has represented Scotland at all age groups - Cadet, Junior and Senior. He was Scotland junior men's captain in 2010 in the European Championships in Israel and made the Final Cut for the U/20 Team GB squad this summer. Jonny's Scottish heritage makes him a valuable commodity for the Glasgow Rocks as he stands as a great role model for any young aspiring Scottish Basketball Players.

"I am very proud to be Scottish and it makes me even prouder to be able to play for the only Scottish Professional Basketball team. I think there are a lot of talented basketball players in Scotland, hopefully we will begin to see more and more of them making their presence felt within the BBL in the coming years."

Jonny Bunyan has joined the Rocks in their pre-season training camps and will be looking to impress during their first friendly fixture against the USA Select Squad on the 9th September, 5:00pm at Kelvin Hall.

With only 3 weeks to go until the official start of the BBL season the Glasgow Rocks squad is almost complete with a further 2 player announcements scheduled for
release later this week.

Fury storm out of Mariner and on to Playoff Finals - 3 days 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]

Boroughmuir shock Saints to make League Championship final - 5 days ago
Boroughmuir Blaze are through to the final of the Scottish League Championship play-offs against Falkirk Fury at Oriam on April 1 after upsetting the seedings by defeating St Mirren 83-77 at the Lagoon Centre, Paisley. For once it was the unsung forwards of the Capital side who earned the plaudits with a brave batting effort against the bigger Saints. Former Edinburgh Kings player Mateusz Kruczynski (194-F-83) led Blaze with 19 points, Jordan Green adding 16 and Luke Gibson 13. But the gu...   [read more]
