Plymouth Raiders unable to end 2014/15 season on a high

raidersPLYMOUTH Raiders were unable to end their season on a high as they were beaten 100-85 by Glasgow Rocks at the Pavilions on Sunday.

The home side were undone in their final BBL match of a troubled campaign by Rocks’ Tayo Ogedengbe and Danny Huffor, who combined for 63 points to secure the Scottish outfit fifth place in the BBL.

Jay Marriott’s men had won both previous meetings between the two teams this season, but Rocks produced a third-quarter rally to head into the play-offs with a fourth straight win.

Sterling Davis’ side settled the three-way fight for fifth after outscoring Raiders 28-17 in the third period to wrestle control of the contest.

Ogedengbe and Huffor stepped up in the absence of club player of the year, Kieron Achara, as the former scored 34 points off 70 per cent field-goal shooting and the latter connected on five triples on his way to 29 points.

Rocks won the battle from beyond the arc, successful with 14 of their 29 three-point attempts compared to the hosts’ eight from 37.

Pierre Hampton ended the season with a 23-point, 10-rebound double-double but could not prevent another defeat, which sees Raiders finish the season in 10th.
