Glasgow Rocks player-coach Sterling Davis has claimed his side has under-achieved, despite their catalogue of injuries and absentees.

The Kelvin Hall outfit have only had their full line-up available seven times in 29 games this season but still sit in fifth place in the BBL.

However Davis is refusing to make excuses for his short-handed squad.

“Could we have done better? I think so,” the American said.

“I say we’re under-achieving because I have expectations for us as a group to get through adversity regardless.

“We’ve had everything you can deal with, especially the last few weeks when we’ve been playing without guards. That’s been really tough. But I still think we can turn some of these games into wins.”

Davis admits he must quickly figure out how to re-integrate EJ Harrison into his line-up after the American guard’s absence.

The Rocks captain re-joined the his team-mates on Tuesday after spending three weeks in the USA following the death of his father.

However with BBL leaders Newcastle visiting on Sunday, Davis says Harrison’s comeback can’t come too soon.

“It will be big for us, just because of having that veteran leadership at that one position,” he said.

“But the most frustrating thing is that we now don’t have much time to get that chemistry going, headed into the play-offs, because there have been so many disruptions with guys going in and out. That will be a huge challenge.”
