|We may be into March, but still the debutantes keep on flowing and we have two more fresh faces in our starting five this week!
Jack Isenbarger (Leeds Force)
The Force guard caught fire in the capital as he inspired his side to a superb road win at the Copper Box Arena. Isenbarger hangs on to his starting place from Week 21 after he made a spectacular eight triples from ten attempts for Leeds, with his majestic 34 points leaving Lions stunned. It was the best performance of the entire weekend as he also made four of six inside the three-point line in a blistering shooting effort.
Frank Eaves (Cheshire Phoenix)
It’s a first ever appearance in our fantastic five for Eaves after he also produced in a big way from downtown. He had the hot-hand as his team eased past Leeds last Friday in a nice home-court success which witnessed him harvest 21 points – helped from a four of five return from the perimeter. He also mustered four assists and three rebounds on a memorable night at the Cheshire Oaks Arena.
Earl Brown (Cheshire Phoenix)
The other main driving force behind Cheshire’s triumph in front of the BBC Sport cameras was Brown, who did the business by shooting 57% as he registered a nice 22-point haul. In an all-action display, the forward also garnered six rebounds, handed out three assists, blocked two shots, grabbed a steal and didn’t commit any turnovers to take his side to victory.
Pierre Hampton (Leicester Riders)
The forward is warming up nicely ahead of the big BBL Trophy Final in a couple of weeks and Hampton was pivotal in Riders completing a vital comeback win against Cheshire in the league last Saturday. After sealing a sweet six of seven inside for 13 points, he also completed a nice double-double after hauling down ten rebounds, as well as dishing three assists.
Tayo Ogedengbe (Surrey Scorchers)
It’s taken a while for one of the most popular and well known faces in British Basketball, but Ogedengbe has finally nailed down a place in our line-up for the first time this season. The forward used all of his athleticism and power to propel Scorchers to arguably their best result of the season as he finished with a superb 27 points, four rebounds and three steals against the Rocks in Glasgow.
Off the bench – Rashawn Rembert (DBL Sharks Sheffield), Hameed Ali (Bristol Flyers), Rashad Hassan (London Lions), Kieron Achara (Glasgow Rocks), Deondre Parks (Esh Group Eagles Newcastle), Anton Grady (Plymouth Raiders), Gareth Murray (Glasgow Rocks).
