Karol collects Molten BBL Coach of the Month award for November

Mariusz Karol has claimed his first ever BBL individual award after being named Molten BBL Coach of the Month for November in recognition of guiding London Lions to a flawless run.

In a shortened month due to Great Britain action, the Polish play-caller posted a perfect month after overseeing three wins from three games.

Lions started off with a crushing 86-70 victory against Glasgow Rocks at the Copper Box and in what is his rookie season at the helm, Karol then followed it up by leading his side to a pair of road wins.

The first came at Plymouth Raiders as Lions returned to the capital with a hard-fought 75-70 success and they were back in the south-west the following weekend to rack up a similarly tight 67-63 triumph at Bristol Flyers.

Karol fought off stiff competition from Rob Paternostro of Leicester Riders who also went 3-0 during November.
