Basketball: Kings face rookie Rocks

Edinburgh Kings will face another rookie team, Glasgow Rocks, for the first time in the Scottish basketball league at St Maurice's High, Cumbernauld tomorrow at 12.30pm.

But, although they are nominally all one club, any resemblance the new outfit have to the former professional tenants of Meadowbank who now play at Glasgow's Kelvin Hall, is minimal.

Rocks, who have made a respectable enough start to the league, appear to have no playing links with their big brothers who put impressive back-to-back away wins together in the BBL last weekend after an abysmal start to their campaign.

Kings will be wary of a banana skin however, particularly as they will still be without vet student star Michael Kirkpatrick, on study leave, and Latvian student Martins Bremze.

Fireworks are guaranteed tonight at both the Lagoon Sports Centre and the Mariner, where arguably two of the best fixtures so far take place simultaneously, tipping off at 8.00pm.

At Paisley, St Mirren entertain a Stirling Knights team raring to go after their home victory last weekend over Troon Tornadoes, who tonight are away to Fury at Falkirk in a clash which always provides sparks.
