Rodney Glasgow Jr: Influential point guard set to stay at Sheffield Sharks for another season

Influential point guard Rodney Glasgow Jr is set for another year with the Sheffield Sharks after committing to the club for next season.

The 29-year-old, who hails from New York, joined Sheffield ahead of the 2021-22 BBL Championship and quickly established himself as a key part of coach Atiba Lyons’ roster.

What Sheffield Sharks captain Mike Tuck said about retirement following Glasgow ...

He averaged just under 12 points and five assists per game as well as four rebounds.

“Rodney’s re-signed already,” Lyons told The Star.

"We’re excited to have him back going forward as a British guard.”

Injury forced Glasgow to miss most of Sheffield’s BBL play-off double-header against Glasgow Rocks – and his creativity was sorely missed as the Sharks crashed out at the first-round stage for the second year running.

Also missing was Antwain Johnson, who averaged an impressive 18 points per game in the 13 matches he played after signing in February.

"We’ll have to wait and see,” Lyons said when asked about his future.

Exit meetings with the current squad are due to take place this week.

"I’d probably like to keep all of them if I could,” added Lyons.

"It sounds good but then we talk about figures and what they may want and what role they may want and it changes.”

He continued: "Everybody here this season deserved a chance to come back next year.”

Meanwhile, Leicester Riders will play London Lions in the BBL play-off final at The O2 in London on Sunday.

Patrick Whelan, Leicester’s leading scorer, was today named in the BBL team of the year alongside Dan Clark of the Manchester Giants, Cheshire Phoenix pair Teddy Okereafor and Mike Ochereobia and Plymouth City Patriots’ Rowell Graham-Bell.
