A fantastic weekend for the team has been topped off with Rocks’ players dominating the BBL’s Team of the Week this week!
EJ Harrison and Fran Urli are both in the starting five, thanks to EJ’s hot shooting display against the Phoenix on Sunday and Fran’s double-double against the Knights on Saturday, while Daniel Northern and Sterling Davis both made the Team of the Week bench.
Here’s what the BBL website had to say about the players’ inclusions:
The beleaguered Rocks headed into the weekend under real pressure after a poor run of results, but Harrison helped his team go some way to digging their way out of a BBL Championship hole with a super performance. The veteran playmaker was on top of his game at both ends of the floor against Cheshire Phoenix. He converted a spectacular five triples from just six attempts as he bagged 25 points, whilst also producing a superb six assists and also clutching a fabulous five steals.
There is also a debut spot for Rocks’ forward Urli after he conjured up a really smart performance to help his team avoid the considerable banana skin of a potential loss against Birmingham Knights. He landed a double-double of 15 points and 11 rebounds, as well as handing off five assists in a typically efficient display. He was clinical at the basket, making five of six inside and also made his only three-point attempt on what was an excellent shooting night for the Croatian.
While individual achievements are great, well done to the whole team for their performances at the weekend!
