We present a debutante backcourt duo this week.
Cardell McFarland (Bristol Flyers)
After a number of appearances on our bench, the Flyers’ guard finally books a starting slot after taking his team to a huge win against Leeds Force. McFarland was just one assist away from a wonderful double-double and not far away from a triple-double either. He corralled 23 points and dished up nine assists to his team-mates, while also pulling down eight rebounds on an excellent night of work which was the joint-best display of the weekend.
Danny Huffor (Cheshire Phoenix)
It’s also a first place in our starting line-up this season for Huffor, although he has been no stranger to the accolade in the past – mainly while at Glasgow Rocks. And, it was a nice line against his former team that thrust him into our fabulous five after he came up with a massive 28 points against his ex-employers. He was also one rebound shy of a double-double and did some stellar defensive work which culminated in a super six steals.
Kinu Rochford (Cheshire Phoenix)
Still holding the best individual performance of the BBL season so far back on Week 10, Rochford returns to our line-up for a third time off the back of some excellent play against the Rocks. He shot 54% from the field as he cut down the Scottish side with 18 points, while also amassing a mesmerising double-double after harvesting a brilliant 16 rebounds. Also showcasing his passing vision, the forward handed out seven assists in an all-action outing.
Pavol Losonsky (Worcester Wolves)
It’s also a third appearance of the season as a starter in our All-Star Five for Losonsky, who helped Wolves to get over the postponement of last Friday’s game with Leeds because of a traffic collision, by driving his team to success against Glasgow Rocks in the BBL Trophy Quarter-Finals. The forward produced one of the best shooting nights of the entire season as he made an astonishing 10 of 11 from the floor en-route to 26 points, while also completing a double-double with 10 rebounds.
Mike Tuck (Sheffield Sharks)
If his two fellow forwards thought they had great displays to their name, the Sharks’ big man was just as impressive. For he produced the joint-best performance of the entire weekend in Devon to take Sheffield into the last four of the BBL Trophy at the expense of Plymouth University Raiders. Tuck harvested 28 points from 57% shooting and also contributed nine rebounds, two steals and assist, to extend his side’s scintillating winning streak.
Off the bench – Antone Robinson (Sheffield Sharks), Neil Watson (Leicester Riders), Demond Watt (London Lions), Kieron Achara (Glasgow Rocks), Scott Martin (Esh Group Eagles Newcastle), Quincy Taylor (Cheshire Phoenix), Daryl Corletto (Plymouth University Raiders)
