Trey Moore has once again found himself in the BBL Team of the Week with the highest recorded performance valuation for the BBL Team Of The Week! The former league MVP is in good company and is joined by the Molten Player Of The Month for December plus a BBL rookie who only joined his new team recently and yet grabs a place in the BBL starting five.

Trey Moore (Newcastle Eagles)
Trey Moore leads the way after a simply astonishing performance in the massacre of One Health Sharks Sheffield where he finished one rebound short of a sensational triple-double. Not surprisingly his performance valuation was a whopping 46 thanks to a stellar line of 37 points, 11 assists and 9 rebounds. Not only that, but Moore secures successive appearances and makes the BBL Team Of The Week for the sixth time this season as he opens up some daylight between himself and the rest of the challengers still stuck on 4 appearances or less. Moore shows absolutely no sign of slowing down and is definitely one of the form players heading into this new calendar year.

Cody Toppert (UCP Marjon Plymouth Raiders)
After the early season question marks in terms of consistency and the ability to deliver, Toppert is really finding his groove of late and underlining his class as a deadly shooter. It was raining three-pointers on Guildford Heat thanks to the shooter who racked up 27 perimeter points after converting a staggering 9 times from downtown on his way to a superb game and season high 41 points. While Marks and Zabas have been getting a lot of praise for their introduction and role in the upturn of Raiders fortunes, the contribution of Toppert who has made the BBL Team Of The Week previously, shouldn’t be overlooked.


Chez Marks (UCP Marjon Plymouth Raiders)
There is no stopping the prolific Marks who was crowned Molten Player Of The Month For December in recognition of his devastating form of late. He has certainly had the hot-hand all month and done the job with real efficiency which is the most impressive aspect as he makes the line-up for the third time in the last four weeks. He enjoyed a terrific climax to the calendar year with another 25 points against Guildford Heat, this time going 12 of 14 inside as he continued to find his way to the hoop and make most of his shots. His name will certainly be first on the scouting report for opposing coaches in coming weeks as they look to limit the firepower of the free-scoring Raiders.

Charles Smith (Newcastle Eagles)
Just like his team-mate and fellow veteran Trey Moore, Smith is rolling back the years and showing he too is a golden-oldie with successive appearances in the fabulous five. He finished last year with a real flourish and opened up 2011 in a similar vein with 26 points in the rout of One Health Sharks Sheffield – a club he has always loved putting to the sword and for whom he has always reserved his most swashbuckling performances. Smith was on fire from outside against the Sharks as he buried seven triples.


Michael Kingma (Glasgow Rocks)
The Rocks have really picked up during November and December to get their bid for silverware on track and much of that has coincided with the arrival of center Kingma who has helped to give them one of the biggest and most powerful frontcourts in the league. As an added bonus, the big man is now settling into Glasgow really well and that was highlighted by a great performance against Worcester Wolves as the Rocks grabbed the last BBL win of 2010. Kingma just missed out on a double-double after claiming 21 points of an excellent 10 of 11 floor shooting and pulling down 9 rebounds.
