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.

Fury extinguish Blaze to complete SBC Triple Crown - 28 days ago
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 - 1 month 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]
