Leicester Riders took a three point victory on the road against Glasgow Rocks in the BBL Championship to extend their winning record to 7-1.

Riders opened the game well, taking an early lead from which they never looked back over the home side thanks to aggressive guard play and despite a big performance from Rocks Forward Kiran Achara the Riders held onto a small lead with time winding down in the game. Bernardini knocked down a long jumper to seal victory for the visiting Riders.

Derrick Roland led the scoring for the Riders with 17 points and seven rebounds whilst point guard  Neil Watson added 13 points and 9 assists as well as 6 rebounds in a great all-round performance. Tyler Bernardini showed that has returned to fitness pouring in 16 points off the bench whilst Hassan added 14 and Losonsky 12.
