Glasgow Rocks 85 (23, 36, 59) (Davis 20, Harrison 15, Robinson/Achara 12)
Worcester Wolves 79 (12, 28, 47) (Ocitti 26, Kazlauskas 19, Masiulis 12)


The Rocks secured an 85-79 victory over Worcester Wolves at the Emirates Arena to move up to 8th position in the BBL Championship table with a 2-3 record, replacing London Lions in the final BBL Playoffs qualification spot. Wolves remain 4th with 10 points from 10 games.

Some good Rocks basketball led to a big 25-7 run that finished early in the second quarter, leaving the Rocks leading 27-12.

Wolves fought back though, scoring 9 unanswered points, including 7 from Stanley Ocitti (203-F/C-80, college: Binghamton) to reduce the Rocks lead to 27-21. But that was as close as Wolves would get in the second quarter and the Rocks went into half-time leading 36-28.

In the second half, 8 of the first 9 field goals came from beyond the 3-point line as two 3s from Donald Robinson as well as 3s from Gareth Murray (201-F-84, agency: Prossin Sports Management, college: Kalamazoo Valley CC), EJ Harrison (186-PG-76, college: Connecticut) and Sterling Davis followed by a Robinson dunk saw Rocks extend their lead to 53-37. Wolves again fought back though, going on an 8-0 run that included 2 Arnas Kaszlauskas 3-pointers to halve the Rocks lead to 8 points.

3-pointers from both Kieron Achara and Sterling Davis had the Rocks up by 15 early in the fourth at 66-51, but Wolves kept trying and put together a 21-12 run to bring the Wolves within just 6 points at 78-72.

However, with just 43 seconds remaining the clock was on the Rocks side as Wolves needed to foul to keep the game alive. EJ Harrison made all 4 of his free throws and Gareth Murray converted both his efforts to put Rocks up 84-74 with only 19 seconds remaining. Wolves Stuart Thomson hit a 3-pointer, but missed the chance to make it a 4-point play at the free throw line and Arturas Masiulis (210-C-80) made a field goal for Wolves but they just didnt have enough time left and Rocks won the game 85-79.

Player/coach Sterling Davis led Rocks scorers with 20 points, also grabbing 7 boards in his effort. EJ Harrison finished with 15 points, 4 assists and 3 steals. For Wolves, Stanley Ocitti scored 26 points off 10/15 field goal shooting and 5/8 3-point shooting while also grabbing 9 boards. Arturas Masiulis ended the game with 12 points and 12 rebounds.

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]
