PAUL Smith rang the changes tonight to try to ensure his squad were as fresh as possible in Scotland after their disappointing exit from the BBL Cup on Friday, but they were pipped at the last by the Glasgow Rocks.
Quemont Greer started the game on the bench and assistant coach John Lavery was named among the replacements as Gareth Murray started the game at forward.
The Jets kept things close early on as they closed the first period 19-18 down, but in the second they broke open the game with a 34-23 quarter victory that saw them take a 10-point lead into the break.
Jeremy Bell was again the bedrock off the performance, scoring a game-high 33 points with Murray adding an impressive 21 in a shaken-up Jets side.
But in the third quarter the Rocks hit back and reduced the Jets' lead to just a point. Both sides began to flag in the closing period and as Quemont Greer fouled out of the game it was the Rocks who edged it with timely three-pointers from player-coach Sterling Davis and Nick Livas and a clutch of free-throws at the death as the game just slipped away from the Jets.
