On Friday at the Emirates Arena, Bunyan played 15 minutes and hit five in the Glasgow Rocks 85-80 League win over Manchester Giants, a crucial win that maintained the Rocks chance of a play-off spot. Bunyan then hit the road to Ayr on Saturday and in a tight game that required him to be on court for 35 minutes, he hit 10 points in Fury’s 17th consecutive league win. On Sunday, on the road again and again playing Manchester , this time in the BBL Trophy quarter finals Bunyan was the Rocks assist leader dishing out five and scoring two points in the narrow Rocks win.
Former Fury star Kieron Achara was not in action as his table topping side in Bulgaria , Lukoil Academicals had the week off – the GB star is having a solid season and a League medal looks very much on the cards.
