Congratulations to Gareth and Coach Sterl for making the BBL Team of the Week starting five this week after their performances in Manchester on Friday!
Here’s what the BBL had to say about their inclusion:
Gareth Murray: The Rocks’ forward continues to be a big influence at the Emirates Arena and his latest display helped his team to shoot down Manchester Giants. Murray was in deadly form from behind the three-point line, sinking each of his attempts to finish with a perfect three from three from downtown. That helped him to accrue 17 points and he came within a whisker of completing a double-double. Only, it wasn’t in points and rebounds. For the forward showed how his game has developed by coming up with a magnificent nine assists, as well as two blocked shots and a steal for good measure.
Sterling Davis: It could always be argued that it is even more of an accomplishment for a player-coach to make our line-up with so much else to worry about on and off the floor. So, we encourage Sterling Davis to stand up and take a bow after claiming 22 points in the win against Giants. He converted with six of seven attempts at the hoop and was a constant thorn in the side of Manchester who sent him to the foul line no fewer than ten times. Davis also contributed five assists, three rebounds and two blocked shots.
Congratulations to the guys – and the rest of the team – on a great TEAM performance!
