It’s our first line-up of the new calendar year and we have one debutante who arrives in style with the joint-best BBL performance of the week.
Ashton Khan (Worcester Wolves)
It’s a third appearance of the campaign in our fantastic five for the Wolves’ guard after he played a central role in his team’s convincing win against Surrey Scorchers. Khan finished the contest with a smart 15 points from an efficient six of eight shooting effort. He also came up with four assists, four rebounds, two steals and didn’t turn the ball over once during the game, in a very tidy and impressive outing.
Callum Jones (Manchester Giants)
It’s also the third time that Jones has sealed himself a starting five berth and it comes off the back of the Giants’ guard leading his team to a vital north-west derby victory. He was the standout contributor of a success against Cheshire Phoenix, with the British star amassing 18 points, He was just one assist short of a fabulous double-double after handing out a wonderful nine assists to his team-mates, while also garnering five rebounds and three steals.
Pavol Losonsky (Worcester Wolves)
The Slovak Republic forward was the driving force behind his team’s win against the Scorchers after proving too much of a handful under the basket for the opposing defence. Losonsky last appeared as one of our starters way back during the second week of the season and returns after racking up an exceptional double-double. He accumulated 25 points after sinking a superb 79% from the field and also snapped up 14 rebounds.
Mike Tuck (Sheffield Sharks)
It’s a debut starting slot this season for the BBL veteran after he came up with the joint-best performance efficiency valuation of the week. He could barely miss after making a scintillating and jaw-dropping 90% from the floor against Surrey, en-route to 21 points. As if that wasn’t enough, Tuck also had six rebounds and got it done at the defensive end of the floor with a terrific five steals to help his team to victory.
Antone Robinson (Sheffield Sharks)
In what proved to be very much a twin-turbo approach by the Sharks, Robinson accompanied his partner in the paint with a similarly majestic display against the Scorchers. Dropping an outstanding 10 of his 13 shots, the centre finished with a fine 23 points and wrapped up a stellar double-double after going to work on the glass for 12 rebounds. He also becomes only the sixth player to amass a starting slot four times this season.
Off the bench – Demond Watt (London Lions), Andy Thomson (Esh Group Eagles Newcastle), Will Hall (Glasgow Rocks), Cory Dixon (Plymouth University Raiders), Scott Martin (Esh Group Eagles Newcastle), Kinu Rochford (Cheshire Phoenix), John Barber (Sheffield Sharks).
