Rocks lose their crown


Scottish Phoenix Honda Record Rocks  83  (29,45,65)  (Je.Williams 28, McGee 17, Perre 16)
TCS Chester Jets  86  (23,51,66)  (McCord 21, Huntley 20, Davis 18)

TCS Chester Jets progressed to the BBL Championship Play-off Semi-finals courtesy of an 86-83 road
success over last season's Play-off champions Scottish Phoenix Honda Record Rocks on Sunday evening.
Rocks enjoyed a 14-3 first quarter tear and led 29-23 heading into the second period, but Jets
turned the game to their advantage in the second stanza to lead by six themselves at 51-45. Jets'
advantage was down to a single point by the end of the third at 66-65 and the game remained close
through the final quarter. Rocks led 82-78 late on, before a Michael Nurse three pointer trimmed the
gap to one point at 82-81 with 1.19 to go. Billy Singleton put Jets ahead at 85-82 with a bucket and
two free throws inside the final minute. Terrance McGee had the chance to bring Rocks back level
after he was fouled by John McCord attempting a three point shot, but he made just one of his shots
from the charity stripe. Singleton bagged another free throw to make it 86-83 and McGee's last gasp 
 three-point attempt, which would have forced overtime, rimmed out. Jerry Williams led all scorers
with 28 for Rocks; John McCord added 21 for Jets.
