DRUGS: "Ever So Moreish"

Chad McKnight is a hungry player. Hungry for trophies. Hungry for championship success. Hungry for playoff glory. And, as it appears when it’s late at night, especially hungry for Mars bars, Doritos, pizza and a chocolate milkshake.

There was some mystery in the past few weeks over the disappearance of McKnight (rumours he was on the couch listening to Led Zeppelin and watching the Wizard of Oz are unfounded) but the Heat cleared this up with a recently released statement:

'The Guildford Heat were informed by English Basketball on the 8th February of Chad McKnight’s failure of a test for marijuana. The Heat immediately terminated Mr. McKnight’s contract with the club…he assured the club this was a one-off incident which he very much regrets."

McKnight has been a real powerhouse this season and is a front-running factor the Heat are positioned where they are. Understandably, the Heat take a very serious stance on the failing of a drugs test and will act accordingly. For the Rocks, this is an opportunity to take advantage of a weakened squad.

In the last meeting between the two, the Rocks were defeated 88-82 at the Spectrum Centre in Guildford in what was a charge led by point guard Brian Dux. As ever, Mike Martin continued his starring role at Guildford with a healthy 16.

With fourth place (and home court) all but secured at Braehead, it should be interesting to see how the Rocks fare against the now shaken “best team in the BBL”.
