BBL 16-17 Preview: Week 7

We have another six-game line-up this week that again starts at the Copper Box Arena tonight, while two BBL Cup Quarter-Finals also take place.

Focus
Leeds Force v Glasgow Rocks

Details: Friday 04 November, Carnegie Sports Centre, 7:30pm – BBL Championship

Summary: The visiting Rocks have won five straight games in a run that started with a Cup victory over Friday’s opponents. Leeds returned to winning ways last weekend with a home success over Surrey Scorchers to improve to 2-4.

Season record: Force 0-0 Rocks (0-1 all comps)

Hayden Lescault, Glasgow Rocks guard – “We are playing at a really high level right now and have been growing a lot as a unit.

“Leeds is a really solid team with some good players. They burned us with some of their sets last game, so we have been working hard all week to make sure we are locked in defensively.

“As long as we start the game with a lot of energy and we focus on the defensive end, I’m confident we’ll pull out a victory.”
