Glasgow Rocks player-coach Sterling Davis will be offered a new deal at the British Basketball League club despite his failure to land a trophy in his four years at the helm.

The Kelvin Hall outfit end the regular season today against Milton Keynes Lions with no hope of finishing higher than fifth in the standings.


After their recent slump, Davis’ men will be rank outsiders when the BBL play-offs begin next weekend. However Rocks chairman Ian Reid is opting to keep faith in the American rather than seeking a fresh face.

“There are no thoughts whatsoever about making any changes,” Reid said. “We’ve spoken about a new contract and I’m not looking anywhere else. 

“It’s very easy in sport to think that changing coach will revolutionise a team. Most successful basketball teams have that consistency. And we’re hopefully building a dynasty rather than looking short-term.”

With the visitors out of play-off contention, Davis will look for a win this afternoon to lift his side’s ailing spirits. And he seems likely to accept the challenge of re-building his squad this summer.

“The directors have always been behind be 100 per cent and I cherish that relationship,” he said. “It’s good to have that consistency.”
