There is another debutant in our line-up this week, while another player from the same club becomes our season co-leader for the most starting five appearances.
Tony Hicks (Surrey Scorchers)
The resurgent Scorchers have been fuelled magnificently by the guard, who has been one of the leading players in the BBL during the current calendar year. Hicks rolled out another stunning effort with 33 points from 70% floor shooting in a thriller at Giants. He also racked up a stellar double-double by handing out 11 assists.
Tyler Bernardini (Leicester Riders)
It may have been a mixed bag results-wise for Riders over the weekend, but Bernardini is still helping the league leaders storm towards a successful title defence. He was at the heart of a win against arch rivals Esh Group Eagles Newcastle with a fine line of 21 points, 7 rebounds and 3 assists, as he lit it up from downtown.
Jonathon Thompson (London Lions)
It’s a first ever slot in our line-up for the versatile guard, with the mid-season arrival helping London Lions to shift up the gears. Thompson was in great form during the match-up against Esh Group Eagles Newcastle as he starred with a classy double-double of 17 points and 10 assists, as well as 2 steals and 2 blocks.
Brandon Peel (London Lions)
The Lions’ forward becomes our co-season leader after retaining his place in our fantastic five once again. In what proved to be a very fruitful week for London, he starred with a sublime contribution against Leicester of 18 points from 8 of 9 floor shooting – as well as completing a double-double with 14 rebounds.
CJ Gettys (Cheshire Phoenix)
The Cheshire big man may have spent some time out with an injury, but the team are making a late surge and was central to an emphatic win against Glasgow Rocks. Gettys showcased his power in the post by shooting 75% from the field en-route to an excellent 25 points and was just one rebound short of a double-double.
Off the bench – Raheem May-Thompson (Cheshire Phoenix), Saah Nimley (Esh Group Eagles Newcastle), Zach Gachette (DBL Sharks Sheffield), Trayvon Palmer (Worcester Wolves), David Kadiri (Manchester Giants), Cory Dixon (London Lions), Jordan Whelan (Manchester Giants).
