Rocks look to finish BBL season on a high

Rocks are getting ready for their final two games of the 2018/19 BBL season as they face a double-header,  playing against Worcester away followed by Plymouth Raiders at home.

In the final weekend of the BBL regular season, Rocks face a road trip to Worcester followed by a return home for their final matchup with the Plymouth Raiders.

Rocks are yet to lose to the Worcester Wolves this season, but face them away from home for the first time on Friday. Wolves have had a tough season, sitting dead last in the BBL standings with a 5-26 record. The team saw a slight resurgence under interim coach, Tony Garbelotto, picking up a few wins later in the season but have still struggled against the top half of the league.

Nevertheless, Rocks will need to be wary of the threats posed by swingman, DeShawn Freeman who has been averaging 18 points and 10 rebounds since he joined the club at the tail end of 2018. Darrell Combs has also been a major player for the Wolves, with the point guard averaging 13 points and 4 assists per game.

Rocks will then return to the Emirates to face the Raiders as they look to claim the head-to-head against the Plymouth side. Raiders are an up and down team but still a team to be wary of. Plymouth has arguably three of the best players in the league in Rashad Hassan, Josh Wilcher and Donte Nicholas, but unfortunately their supporting cast have left a lot to be desired, causing them to have a lack of depth in big games. Despite this, Raiders are a tricky matchup due to their solid defensive play and ability to knock down the three ball.
