EJ Harrison
Tha EJ Harrison (186-PG-76, college: Connecticut) fella cant half play! What a display from the veteran guard on Sunday, with 27 points to lead the team to their first victory at the Emirates Arena.

Basketball, of course, isnt a one man sport and he was ably assisted by Achara, who appeared closer to match fitness this week and looked a lot sharper than he did against the Eagles.

How many times was he left wide open? Far too many, in truth, but were hardly going to whinge about that, are we?

The performance was certainly a significant improvement from the week before, but it was hardly the finished article. I feel that it will have done their confidence an absolute world of good, knowing that they can play right to the last basket and grind out a come from behind win against a very good side.
As Sterl commented after the game, the more games this team can get under their belt, the more familiar they will become around each other and, one assumes, the better the team will become.

A word though, about the Manchester Giants. They may be a new franchise, but they are a roster full of BBL veterans who can be relied on night after night to give everything theyve got. How many times has David Aliu (198-F-81, college: Morehead St.) destroyed the Rocks in the past? I feel that they are a team that will be in contention for a top four spot come the final games of the season and the two teams on Sunday were very evenly matched, as the 88-85 score would suggest. They too will only improve as the season progresses.

Back to the Rocks, though. In the last two weeks, we have seen exactly what we were missing last season. A healthy EJ Harrison is one of the best guards in this league. While Robinson perhaps wasnt as convincing as he was against the Eagles, it is early days for him and Ive no doubt that he and E.J. will be the perfect combo.

I cant help but feel, however, that the success of the team will depend largely on just how long big Kieron stays with the club. The fact that he has averaged 18 pts, 12.5 rbs and 3 blocks in his two games, without playing at 100% fitness suggests he is a massive part of the roster. The problem being, of course, that we dont know just how long he will stick around. While he stated afterwards that he was in no hurry to leave Glasgow, he also stated that he doesnt see himself staying the entire season.

That is a worry for me, but I suppose we can cross that bridge when we come to it. For now, lets all just bask in the glory of a terrific, thrilling first home win of the season.
