CHESTER Jets have conceded the BBL title following their one-point defeat at rivals Brighton Bears on Saturday.
Head coach Robbie Peers said before the game that victory in Sussex was essential to keep them in the hunt for the title, but Jets are still one of three qualifiers so far for the Championship Play-off Finals at the end of the season.
Jets bounced back on Sunday night with a gritty performance to beat Scottish Rocks 76-71 at the Nortrhgate Arena, despite having Kenny Gregory sidelined with a knee injury.
It meant Peers had to rely on his starting five from start to finish which made the victory even more commendable.
Club skipper Pero Cameron led from the front with an inspirational performance to finish top scorer with 26 points.
Jets will now be hoping Gregory responds to treatment in time to take his place in Saturday's BBL Trophy Final in Sheffield against London Towers.
