Congratulations to our very own Donald Robinson for making the BBL Team of the Week starting five this week after two excellent performances over the weekend.
Surprisingly, this is Donald’s first appearance in the starting five – but with the form he’s hitting right now we’re sure it won’t be his last!
Here’s what the BBL website had to say about his inclusion:
It was a great individual weekend for Donald Robinson who grabs his first place in our line-up, after two excellent performances He racked up a game high 26 points against Jelson Homes DMU Leicester Riders at the Emirates Arena, although it wasn’t enough to ensure a win. However, 48 hours earlier, another vibrant display by Robinson was enough to help Rocks clinch a hard fought win at Manchester Giants and ensure a debut BBL Team Of The Week slot. He helped to hold off a strong finish by the Giants with an excellent 25 points, six rebounds, four assists, two blocks and one steal.
After an inconsistent start to the season “The Don” is emerging as the Rocks main offensive threat, commenting in today’s Herald: “I don’t feel any pressure. I’m just doing what I have to do to help the team and I know scoring is one of the main things on me. So I’m stepping up to do that.
“I know I need to be more aggressive. It’s been a big transition for me coming here out of college due to the size of all the players but it was set out to me that I had to adjust and learn.”
