BBL Championship. Glasgow Rocks welcome Sheffield Sharks to the Emirates Arena with the home side looking to extend their excellent recent run of form. Tip-off is at 5pm and tickets are available.
Glasgow Rocks have been on the up since they started last December with a memorable 92-80 victory over then leaders Newcastle Eagles and followed it up with a crushing 111-57 win over Leeds Force. Those results have acted as a catalyst for a run of form that has taken the Rocks up to third place in the BBL table level on points with the aformentioned Newcastle Eagles who are second on points difference.
While Leicester Riders (currently with a 10-point lead at the summit) look out of reach the Rocks will want to keep winning to secure a second-place finish and a best possible draw for the end of season play-offs. Today’s opponents Sheffield Sharks – fifth in the table but with games in hand – will have the same thought on their minds which should make for a attacking and entertaining game of basketball at the Emirates this evening.
Will the Rocks strengthen their grip on a top three place or can the visitors spring a surprise? All roads lead to the Emirates Arena to find out!
