Surrey Scorchers lose on the road in the BBL Championship to the Glasgow Rocks 103 – 76.

It was another loss for Coach Raftopoulos’ team, as they could not seem to find their form at the Emirates Arena.

MPU

It was a game of misfires from the Scorchers as they struggled to score on the road, putting together a shooting success rate of only 50%.

The first quarter appeared promising, as the Scorchers were leading by six with five minutes to go. But Rocks were quick to put a stop to any winning run, helped by a series of fouls from the Surrey side.

With Jordan Williams resting with injury back in Surrey, the team struggled to stay within touching distance of Glasgow in Q2 after a number of missed shots off the glass.

They returned to changing room at half-time visibly frustrated, down by 9 and with a lot of work to do.

It was the Glasgow Rocks that came out firing in the second half, as Greg Pryor made several three-point shots in quick succession to extend their lead.

There were no answers from Surrey, despite Quincy Taylor scoring a BBL career high of 28 points in his total 40-minute stint on the court.

Trailing by 20, Scorchers found themselves even lighter on the ground, as Caylin Raftopoulos and Captain Ogedengbe fouled out in the final quarter.

The game ended with another disappointing defeat for the Surrey Scorchers as they now sit 11th in the championship standings, one below Glasgow Rocks in 10th.

Surrey Scorchers will return to Surrey Sports Park on the 8th of December, as they take on local rivals London Lions. Click here to buy your tickets.
