YESTERDAY Glenn Scott was at work selling phones - tonight he will be making some of the big calls for the Rockhampton Rockets in their grand final clash.

The 2014 Queensland Basketball League men's and women's grand final series are set to be the icing on the cake for arguably the region's most popular sporting teams.

The Rockets meet local rivals Mackay Meteors at a sold-out Hegvold Stadium, which holds just under 1000 fans, in a three-match series.

The first match will tip-off at 7.30pm tonight.

The boys will be looking to claim back-to-back titles for the first time.

While they light up that court, the Rockhampton Cyclones will take on the Mackay Meteorettes at Mackay's Candlestick Park in their first ever QBL grand final.

Their first match also tips off at 7.30pm.
