Gettys gets handed Molten BBL Player of the Month gong

Cheshire Phoenix standout CJ Gettys has been rewarded for some outstanding displays by being handed the prestigious Molten BBL Player of the Month award for November.

The centre has proved a handful for opposing defences ever since he tipped off his BBL career back in September and looks to be getting stronger with every game.

Gettys guided Phoenix to three wins from their five games during the month and averaged a spectacular November double-double .

He amassed 20 points and 11.2 rebounds per game – also making a number of weekly BBL All-Star Five line-ups. Gettys was sensational on the offensive glass, with 30 boards to his name and he also fired 56% from the field.

Gettys fought off competition from David Kadiri of Manchester Giants and Tre Bennett of Leeds Force, who both also enjoyed successful individual months.
