This week’s line-up from the league includes two of our Eagles playing off the bench.
Well done Jaysean and Darius.
Here’s the full pick of players from the BBL:
Brandon Parrish (Worcester Wolves)
It’s the second time that the Wolves’ guard has grabbed a slot in our fantastic five, his latest appearance coming off the back of a sparkling shooting effort at Leeds. He came off the bench and torched the Force with 27 points from an eye-bulging 11 of 15 from the floor. He also had 4 steals, 4 rebounds and two assists.
Tyler Bernardini (Leicester Riders)
It’s successive appearances for the Leicester captain as he once again led by example to carry his side to a hard-fought win at Worcester Wolves. Bernardini amassed 25 points, nailing five big triples in that tally and also registering 4 rebounds, 3 assists and 3 steals – as well as hitting the clutch shot during crunch time.

Brandon Peel (London Lions)
It was a magnificent win for London as they clipped the wings of the high-flying Eagles at Sport Central. Leading the way was Peel, with the forward securing an impressive fifth starting berth of the season in our line-up after a majestic 21-point and 15-rebound double-double – plus 4 assists, 2 steals and 2 swats.
Kinu Rochford (Plymouth Raiders)
There was a sense of elation in the air at the Pavilions as Raiders finally snapped their losing streak which stretched back to late November. It’s been a long winter, but thanks mainly to Rochford, they are back on the winning trail after his all-action and near triple-double 15 points, 10 rebounds, 8 assists and 4 blocks against Sheffield.
Alasdair Fraser (Glasgow Rocks)
The Scottish star was on top of his game for Rocks as they closed down Flyers live on BBC Sport in one of a number of highly exciting games on Friday night. Fraser did a great job inside with a stellar double-double of 20 points and 10 rebounds, but also showing his vision with a sweet 6 assists that accompanied 2 steals and a block.
Off the bench – Chris Alexander (DBL Sharks Sheffield), Jaysean Paige (Esh Group Eagles Newcastle), Cory Dixon (London Lions), Darius Defoe (Esh Group Eagles Newcastle), Eric Curth (Leeds Force), Callum Jones (Manchester Giants), Paul Guede (London Lions).
