|There is a new season leader, as well as three debutantes – including a historic first spot for a non-BBL player who crashes our line-up.
Darrell Bethune (Levett Essex Leopards)
As a former Leeds Force player, the guard knows all about the BBL and was the main architect of a giant-killing for the second tier side. Bethune inspired Leopards to a famous Trophy win against Manchester Giants by adding to the great work of his team-mate Mike Martin in the paint with a dazzling 32 points from the backcourt. He also had five rebounds and three assists.
Danny Huffor (Worcester Wolves)
Our second debutante is no stranger to our line-up from the past and finally gets his first starting slot this season. Huffor was the standout performer for Wolves on BBC Sport as he rained down a deluge of triples on the Sharks. He finished with 31 points after making a scintillating seven of nine from downtown. He also added five boards and two steals on a great night of work.
Pierre Hampton (Leicester Riders)
The forward took Riders into the Quarter-Finals of the BBL Trophy in a pulsating clash against Glasgow Rocks. Hampton grabbed his debut place in our fab five after torching his former team with some great inside-outside shooting. He was a fantastic 10 of 13, including a perfect three of three downtown, as he scored 23 points and harvested a double-double with 10 rebounds.
Anton Grady (Plymouth Raiders)
Continuing his rich vein of form, Grady was instrumental in helping Raiders ease their way past Scottish-side, Boroughmuir Blaze in the BBL Trophy. The Devon club kept pounding the ball inside and Grady came up with the goods after making a clinical 12 of 17 on his way to 30 points. He also completed a nice double-double with 11 boards to sent his team into the last eight of the competition.
Scott Martin (Esh Group Eagles Newcastle)
In a great boost ahead of Sunday’s BBL Cup Final, the so-called ‘quiet man’ of the Eagles has thrust himself into the limelight as the first player to rack up a fourth starting appearance. Martin did it in style with the joint-best performance efficiency valuation of the entire season, when racking up a brilliant 34 points, 11 rebounds, five assists and three steals at home to Cheshire.
Off the bench – Leslee Smith (Bristol Flyers), Peter Hooley (Plymouth Raiders), Earl Brown Jnr (Cheshire Phoenix), Hayden Lescault (Glasgow Rocks), Richard Bell (Manchester Giants), Rahmon Fletcher (Esh Group Eagles Newcastle), Andrew Bachman (Worcester Wolves).
