New look Rocks striving for success

Glasgow Rocks have had one of the most changeable rosters in the BBL this season, making numerous signings, cuts and a mid-season coaching change.

British forward William Hall and American shooting guard Warren Gillis are the latest additions to the roster, names familiar to the Rocks faithful. Both having already enjoyed spells in Glasgow.

The pair arrive ahead of the temporary departure of many of Glasgow’s key rotation players, the likes of Gareth Murray, Kieron Achara and Jonny Bunyan selected by Scotland for Commonwealth Games duties.

General Manager Daniel Bajwoluk has been quick to point out his admiration for Hall, after the player enjoyed a successful stint in Glasgow last time around – averaging 12.7 points and 6.9 rebounds per game.

“Will has always been on our radar, especially after his excellent season with us back in 2015/16,” began Bajwoluk.

“He is a versatile big man that can do a little bit of everything on the floor, but most importantly he has a very high basketball IQ and will mix well with the group of guys we currently have on the roster.”

On Sunday, the latest version of the Rocks welcome Cheshire Phoenix.

Ben Thomas’ Phoenix have proven to be comeback kings this season, something the Rocks are all too familiar with: Cheshire erased a twelve point deficit to defeat the Rocks in the Cup.

Both teams will be confident of victory, however, the Rocks having earned two points at The Cheshire Oaks Arena earlier in the season.

Tip-off is 5pm at the Emirates Arena, Sunday 11th March.
