BBL Team of the Week – Week 22

The new faces keep on rolling with two more debutantes this week, one of which racked up the best display of the weekend.

James McCann (Leeds Force)
It’s a first ever appearance in our starting five line-up for the Leeds playmaker after he helped his team to record arguably their best win of the entire campaign, as they collected a thrilling victory at Cheshire Phoenix. McCann finished with 25 points in a highly impressive shooting display which saw him go seven of nine inside the three-point line and drop three shots from beyond it. He also had a terrific six rebounds, four assists and four steals.

Bryquis Perine (Bristol Flyers)
The guard comes crashing into the BBL Team of the Week fabulous five for the first time in real style after amassing the highest performance valuation of the weekend. Perine was unstoppable for Flyers as they once again got the better over south-west rivals Plymouth University Raiders. He sunk a majestic 34 points from a spectacular 75% inside and 60% from long-range, while also garnering seven boards as well as three assists, a block and a steal.

TrayVonn Wright (Leicester Riders)
The athletic Riders’ forward grabs his second slot of the season after posting a blistering performance against Durham Wildcats. Making a perfect eight from eight at the hoop and knocking down a trio of three-pointers, the high-flying Wright recorded a classy 25 point haul. He also showed a thirst for hard work on the glass, with his handy work resulting in seven rebounds, to go with an assist and a steal.

Rashad Hassan (Leicester Riders)
It’s consecutive appearances for Hassan in our starting five after he also helped to put the Wildcats to the sword with a powerful and typically efficient effort in the paint. The forward made 10 of 14 from the floor en-route to registering 21 points against his opponents, while also managing to secure a fine double-double. He harvested 12 rebounds to accomplish the feat and now has five starting places in our line-up to his name.

Alif Bland (Bristol Flyers)
The Flyers’ big man came to the party against Raiders and played the perfect accompanying role to the headline effort of his team-mate Bryquis Perine. While his colleague excelled in the backcourt, Bland came up with some trademark fireworks in the frontcourt – including the highlight of four spectacular blocked shots. He also accumulated 22 points from 66% floor shooting and hauled down eight rebounds.

Off the bench – Rahmon Fletcher (Esh Group Eagles Newcastle), Demond Watt (Cheshire Phoenix), Zaire Taylor (London Lions), Makal Stibbins (London Lions), Dominique Coleman (Surrey United), Tayo Ogedengbe (Glasgow Rocks), Ralph Bucci (Durham Wildcats).
