Match Report

Rockets began their last warm up friendly game at Rivermead against old rivals Essex and Herts Leopards with a convincing win by 97 -74. Head Coach Alan Keane gave plenty of court time to the new Academy young men whilst 6 of the 7 new Senior players familiarised themselves with Rivermead itself.

An opening quarter of 41 -25 set the scene as Rockets exploded from the start. By the halftime interval Rockets led by 67-41 with 3 of the new signings already in double figures an with a comfortable 85-52 third quarter advantage Coach Keane left all his academy players get an exhaustive experience of the top division in English basketball. This will prove immensely helpful in the season ahead as Rockets closed out the game 97- 74.
