After several weeks featuring on the bench, Kadiri Richard has finally made it into the BBL Team of the Week starting line-up. Reggie Jackson makes his first appearance on the bench.

Ryan Patton (One Health Sharks Sheffield)

This is the sixth time the Sharks sharp shooter has made the team and it comes courtesy of one of the hottest perimeter displays of the entire season. Patton was a remarkable 9 of 11 from downtown against the Rocks as he dished up a master class to the hosts. His accuracy from the arc helped him to 29 points while 3 rebounds, 3 assists and 3 steals all contributed to an impressive performance valuation of 34 – though it was still only the second best display of a super week.


Demarius Bolds (Prestige Homes MK Lions)

Demarius Bolds makes the line-up for the very first time and that is hardly a surprise after the guard claimed a sparkling double-double as his team completed a thrilling win against Jelson Homes Leicester Riders. Bolds racked up 25 points and did the dirty work on the glass to pull down 12 rebounds as well as grabbing 4 steals and dishing up 3 assists in a vibrant all-action performance.


Andrew Sullivan (Mersey Tigers)

The Great Britain captain continues to lead Mersey Tigers by example and he is in contention to catch Trey Moore after chalking up a seventh appearance of the season in our starting five with a great double-double. He ensured Tigers despatched Worthing Thunder with 20 points and 13 rebounds with his best work coming inside where he was almost unstoppable, finishing a highly efficient 9 of 10 shots in the paint.

Mike Tuck (One Health Sharks Sheffield)

Just like team-mate Ryan Patton, Sharks forward Mike Tuck also brings up his sixth appearance of the season and he can have the bragging rights in the locker room after completing the best display of the week. He amassed a performance valuation of 35 against Rocks to surpass Patton after pouring in 32 points and harvesting 11 rebounds. Tuck was perfect from outside where made two triples and also from the free-throw line where he was 6 of 6.


Kadiri Richard (Newcastle Eagles)

Completing a near clean sweep of double-doubles in our line-up comes Kadiri Richard. The dunk champion came up with one of the most impressive stats of the season as he missed out on the rarest of triple-doubles by just one block after finishing the game against Lions with 12 points, 14 rebounds and 9 blocked shots. The display also included a number of ferocious dunks and alley-oops in an exciting and entertaining display of his athleticism.
