Preview: Bristol Flyers v Glasgow Rocks

Bristol Flyers look to get their bonfire weekend off to a bang, when they return to the SGS WISE Arena to host the Glasgow Rocks.

All the key information on Saturday’s BBL opponents can be found below.

GLASGOW ROCKS
Originally established as the Edinburgh Rocks in 1998, the team rebranded as the Scottish Rocks in 2002 following a move 45 miles west to Glasgow. The club once again renamed to become the Glasgow Rocks in 2009 following a new long-term agreement with Glasgow City Council. The team moved into their current home at The Emirates Arena in 2012, where games are played in both the Main Arena and the smaller Sports Hall.

HEAD COACH
Sterling Davis – After retiring from his playing career in the summer, Davis now focuses on coaching duties and moulding together a new-look side. Sterling had spells with a number of BBL clubs during his playing career, including Sheffield Sharks (2004–2006), London Towers (2003) and Brighton Bears (2001–2003). He scored a career-high 42 points on March 1st 2011 in a game against the Guildford Heat.

ONE TO WATCH
Kieran Achara – The 6ft 10in forward made his debut for the Rocks in 2010 during an 80-76 win over the Sheffield Sharks. The GB international was part of the British national team, which took park in the London 2012 olympics, and Achara played a major role in the only victory of the tournament for the team against China.

LAST TIME OUT
Bristol Flyers could not hold on to their fourth quarter lead, as Glasgow Rocks stormed from behind to snatch a 97-91 victory on the road at the WISE Basketball Arena. Click here to watch the highlights.
