BBL All-Star Five – Week 2

Posted on BBL Media

There was an incredible battle to make our line-up this week, with some outstanding performances being squeezed out by our fantastic five.

Saah Nimley (Esh Group Eagles Newcastle)
A week after his first ever All-Star Five appearance, Nimley hangs on to his place after once again proving just what a star and big favourite he might be at Sport Central. The guard was unstoppable against Rocks as he helped his side tear down Glasgow, posting a stellar 37-point haul that was built firmly on an eye-popping 8 buckets from long-range.

Neil Watson (Plymouth Raiders)
The Raiders are off the mark with their first win and that was largely down to the experienced BBL guard showcasing his ability against a Leeds team that had frustrated their hosts for long periods. But, Watson had the key to success and garnered a mesmerising 38 points that included 9 triples, 6 rebounds and 5 assists in the best performance of the weekend.

Justin Robinson (London Lions)
The Great Britain international was on fire once again for the BBL Championship co-leaders after posting a playmaking master-class against the visiting Manchester. He lit up the Copperbox with a classy double-double that left the highlights reel well and truly bulging with clips. He landed a brilliant 19 points and 13 assists, as well as 3 steals.

Demonte Flannigan (London Lions)
Having grabbed his debut berth last week, Flannigan is back again after continuing his eye-catching start to his BBL career in the capital. The forward proved too hot to handle for the Giants defence, finishing the contest with an all-action display of 23 points, 7 rebounds and 4 assists, as Lions continued their flawless opening.

Tony Wroblicky (DBL Sharks Sheffield)
No stranger to our line-up after an impressive rookie BBL campaign last year with Sharks, the big man is continuing to impress after making a telling contribution in the Yorkshire derby. He torched Leeds Force with a 63% shooting effort that culminated in 14 [points, but it was his phenomenal 18 rebounds that made the real difference.

Off the bench – Robert Sandoval (Cheshire Phoenix), Jaysean Paige (Esh Group Eagles Newcastle), Grey Mays (Plymouth Raiders), Jalen Billups (Glasgow Rocks), David Kadiri (Manchester Giants), Raheem May-Thompson (Cheshire Phoenix), Pierre Hampton (Leicester Riders).
