All-Star 5 – Week 12

The stars of the BBL saved some of their most stunning performances of this campaign so far for the opening weekend of the BBL Championship, with this week’s All-Star 5 combining for by far the highest Performance Points total to date. It includes two-time league MVP Rahmon Fletcher and NBA G-League transfer Amir Williams both going through the 40 mark.

Rahmon Fletcher – Newcastle Eagles

Newcastle made their longest road-trip of the season on Sunday, and Fletcher poured in 32 points to lead them past Plymouth Raiders. He proved impossible to handle as he got to the free-throw line 16 times, making 14 of those – the most by an Eagle in a decade – as well as adding eight assists.

Amir Williams – Worcester Wolves

On his BBL Championship debut Amir Williams posted a monster double-double of 21 points and 19 rebounds as Worcester beat Surrey Scorchers on Friday. The 6’11” Michigan native – who has previously played for the Memphis Grizzlies in the NBA Summer League – shot 8-12 (66%) from the floor and also blocked five shots.

Kyron Cartwright – Leicester Riders

In another twice-in-a-decade effort, Cartwright handed out an amazing 19 assists in Leicester’s defeat of Plymouth on Friday night, tying Josh Wilcher who was on the other side. Cartwright was close to a triple-double, adding 11 points and eight rebounds as he controlled the game from the point guard position.

Jamell Anderson – Leicester Riders

Another one from Leicester’s win over Plymouth on Friday, Anderson had a career-best night. He missed just one shot on his way to 23 points, shooting 9-10 (90%) from the field, a perfect 7-7 inside and 3-3 at the line. The British forward added nine rebounds, two steals, a block and an assist.

Mackey McKnight – B. Braun Sheffield Sharks

McKnight took his good BBL Cup form into the Championship, as he makes a third All-Star 5 appearance of the season following Sheffield’s big road win at Bristol Flyers. He shot 7-8 (87%) from the field for 19 points, to go with seven assists, four rebounds and two steals.

Off the bench: CJ Gettys (Newcastle Eagles), Josh Wilcher (Plymouth Raiders), Cortez Edwards (Worcester Wolves), Disraeli Lufadeju (Cheshire Phoenix), Brandon Peel (London Lions), Fred Thomas (Bristol Flyers), Parker Jackson-Cartwright (Cheshire Phoenix).
