Davis earns reward for Rocks’ run

Have your say

Glasgow Rocks’ Sterling Davis has been named Molten BBL coach of the month for November after guiding the Emirates Arena-based team to a fantastic run of results to help bury 
memories of their slow start to the 2012-13 season.

The player-coach was just a whisker away from harvesting an unbeaten run during 
the month but had to endure 
a gut-wrenching 72-71 BBL Cup defeat at One Health Sharks Sheffield.

That solitary loss came right 
at the start of November, 
and was followed by a five-
game winning streak as Rocks began the process of getting themselves back to the fringes 
of the BBL Championship title race.

The first game was an 85-79 home win against Worcester Wolves, with the Rocks’ faithful at the Emirates Arena then seeing their side overpower London Lions by 87-73.

Perhaps the most impressive work came towards the end of the month, when Davis and his team recorded three consecutive road victories, including a 
monumental weekend win double at the title-chasing UCP Marjon Plymouth Raiders and Surrey Heat.

The last win of the month came as Rocks, minus GB forward Kieron Achara, staved off a late surge by Manchester Giants to chalk up an 83-77 victory.
