EABL players of the week: Week 8

Joe Thomas – Copleston High School

It hasn’t been the start to look back on with fondness for Copleston High School after losing their opening four games of the season. However, this week, the team had a huge boost after picking up their first much-needed victory of the season after winning 115-82 against Oakland last Wednesday. The star man in the performance and the first player on this week’s players of the week is Joe Thomas. The 6ft3 guard scored an outrageous 35 points to help his side to a landslide victory in week 8.

Lane Campbell – Charnwood Riders

It was another big win for the Charnwood Riders as they kept the pressure on SGS College, beating the Derby Trailblazers 85-83 in a closely fought contest. The standout player for Charnwood and the second player in this week’s players of the week is Lane Campbell. The Team GB youth team player had a monster game both offensively and defensively scoring 25 points, grabbing five rebounds, and a staggering 10 steals in the game. His domination at both ends of the floor just about proved enough to help his side keep their unbeaten record.

Louie Tucker – SGS College

SGS College carried on in formidable fashion, moving to 6-0 for the year after beating Birmingham Met College 94-68. The man who inflicted the misery on BMET was none other than EABL top scorer Louie Tucker. Tucker yet again put his SGS side on his back and dropped 27 points in a major blowout victory for his team.

Declan Kom – Sheffield College

Without a win since the opening rounds of fixtures in the EABL league campaign, Sheffield College continued their current run of bad form after losing to rivals Derby Trailblazers. Despite the 72-83 loss, Sheffield will feel like they have a player in the team who can help their fortunes as the season draws closer to the midway mark. The player in question and the fourth player in our players of the week is Dec Kom. He finished the game with a scoring outburst of 33 points.

Di-Jani Parkinson – City of London Academy

City of London’s Di-Jani Parkinson stepped up again last time out in another win for his side after beating Itchen College 66-56. Parkinson continued his impressive scoring streak, following his incredible 28 points against John Madjeski Academy with another 20-point overhaul, scoring 21 points this time around. The impressive turnaround in the form now sees the City of London Academy sitting third in the Southern Conference behind Barking and Itchen.
