Glasgow Rocks 85 (21, 46, 68) (Ringgold 18, Fantazia 17, Murray 13)
One Health Sharks Sheffield 65 (23, 34, 46) (Williams 16, Holmes 13, Tuck 10)

Glasgow Rocks beat One Health Sharks Sheffield 85-65 Sunday afternoon to retain fifth spot in the BBL Championship table. The victory is Rocks fourth in their last five games and keeps them fifth with 22 points from 19 games, just ahead of Worcester Wolves, who have two less points but a game in hand following their win at Durham Wildcats. Sharks meanwhile remain in the final BBL Playoffs spot, sitting eighth in the table with 14 points from 19 games.

The teams appeared closely matched in the first quarter, as they fought a tight opening quarter that featured a total of seven lead changes with neither side able to take a lead of more than 4 points and that pattern continued in the second half until Mike Ringgold (200-F-87, college: Rider)s putback midway through the quarter changed the lead-holder for the tenth and final time. That started a run which saw Rocks prevent Sharks from making a field goal attempt as they outscored them 16-3 for the rest of the quarter, to take a 46-34 lead into half-time.

They maintained that momentum after the break, extending the run to 24-5, ending the run with a pair of 3-pointers scored by Brice Fantazia (193-G-85, college: Culver Stockton) and EJ Harrison that put them up 54-36 with 3 minutes of the quarter played. Baskets scored by Mike Tuck and Demetrius Jemison closed the gap a little before Rocks went on a 7-0 run and further extend the lead out to 61-40 with 3:32 to play in the quarter. Sharks BJ Holmes assisted on an Andrew Bridge trey then scored one of his own to twice bring Sharks back to within 18 points before the Rocks pulled back ahead, leading 68-46 at the end of the quarter.

In the final quarter, a spell that saw Sharks block 2 Rocks shots and also steal the ball off them led to a 7-0 mini-run, pulling them back to with 15 points at 68-53. But Rocks immediately hit back with a 7-0 run of their own as Fantazia made a three-pointer and 2 assists to go back in front 75-53.

Rocks Mike Ringgold led all scorers with 18 points, scoring all of his points from the field where he made 9/10 attempts, and also had 10 rebounds. His teammate Andrew Wedemire also had 10 rebounds as well as 3 steals. Brice Fantazia finished with 17 points, including 9 from long range and 8 assists. For Sharks, their scorers were led by Micah Williams with 16 points, while BJ Holmes scored 13.
