After three successive victories in the BBL, Glasgow Rocks player / coach Sterling Davis has urged his team to continue winning games between now and the end of the campaign.
As things stand, Glasgow are 5th in the standings – six points ahead of 6th position – with two tough away fixtures this weekend.
Despite the recent victories, Davis isn’t completely content with the form of his team though, saying ‘we can still do better’.
Speaking exclusively to bblfans.com about how his team have been performing, the American said: “We can still do better. I’m not completely confident. Right now, I am just trying to get us into the habit of winning games.”
“That means different things at different points. Right now it is about executing ourselves well and finding a way to win.”
Glasgow would certainly love to make it four wins in succession on Saturday when they head to Worcester Wolves – who occupy 2nd position at the moment – but Davis knows his players must raise their game.
“It’s definitely a tough test for us, especially playing at their place. They always play tough down at their venue, but I’m feeling pretty good and hoping we can continue the momentum having won three games.”
The trip to face Worcester on Saturday is followed by a second away clash in as many days when Davis and co take on Guildford Heat on Sunday afternoon.
Speaking about the difference between home and away games, Davis admitted that being the visitors makes things more difficult, but he is hopeful that Glasgow can come away with some positive results.
“Guys are comfortable at home, so whoever you are facing you have got to understand that this is going against you a little. A lot of times, it wears you down a little bit.”
“All these things come into play, but when you are playing away from home you can play freely. You are up against it, but as a group this can bring us closer together.”
As for what Davis hopes to achieve in the remainder of the campaign, he is extremely ambitious and admits that he is not content with 5th position, calling on his team to produce a strong finish.
He continued: “I’d love to be first! I’m not content with anything less than that. I think it’s fair where we are though on the basis that we have lost games.”
“You win some; you lose some, that’s the way our season has gone. We’ve lost some we shouldn’t have. We have been somewhat inconsistent.”
“I’ve said it time and time again, we are just looking to have a winning habit. If we can do that and focus one game at a time, I think everything else can take care of itself.”
“Whoever we draw in the play-offs, my main concern is how we perform. If we perform to the level I know we are capable of doing, I think we have a good chance of making a good run towards the end.”
Glasgow would certainly be boosted by a victory at Worcester Wolves. This fascinating contest gets underway at 7pm on Saturday evening.
