Congratulations to EJ and Gareth who both made the BBL Team of the Week starting five this week after their performances against the Heat on Friday!
Here’s what the BBL had to say about their inclusions:
EJ Harrison (Glasgow Rocks)
There’s one debutante in our line-up this week and that is the Rocks guard, who hasn’t previously featured during the previous 27 weeks. And, this is perhaps something of a surprise, considering his influence on the Scottish club. The veteran produced a fine display to help his team to victory against Surrey Heat in front of another big crowd at the Emirates Arena. He landed 24 points from seven of nine floor shooting inside and a couple of downtown scores. Harrison also had three assists, two rebounds and a steal as Rocks moved back into third spot.
Gareth Murray (Glasgow Rocks)
The British forward is coming up on the rails in the race to grab the most BBL Team of the Week appearances this season, after finding himself in our fabulous five for a fifth time. Murray was unstoppable inside during the home success against Heat, making a stunning eight of nine shots on his way to a 23 point haul. Murray showed his willingness to do the dirty work by harvesting a double-double after pulling down 10 rebounds. He also dished up five assists, as the Rocks continued their impressive form heading down the season stretch and towards the play-offs.
Both players had excellent performances this weekend – but do either get your vote for St. Andrew’s MVP for the season? You get two votes for MVP – one on the sidebar of the website and another over on our Facebook page. Make sure your vote counts!
