EABL Top Performers: Game Week 4

In the fourth week of EABL action, the spotlight shines on the league’s top performers. Notably, Daniel Nwauzu secured his place in our EABL top performers list for the third consecutive week. However, this week’s showcase features several standout athletes who have raised the bar with their exceptional performances. Let’s delve into the outstanding displays from week four of the EABL campaign.

Timothy Oboh, Canterbury Academy

Canterbury Academy needed something exceptional to dethrone the reigning champions, Barking Abbey, and they found it in Timothy Oboh. Canterbury secured an 89-77 victory over Barking, largely thanks to Oboh’s game-high 31 points on an impressive 12-of-16 shooting. This performance proved decisive, allowing Canterbury to dislodge the champions from their perch. Oboh’s contributions extended to both ends of the floor, where he grabbed 15 rebounds and drew six fouls. He also showcased his defensive prowess with three steals. Speaking to EliteScholars, Oboh said:

“I think the team executed what we work on in practice every day quite effectively. While we’re not there yet, we aim to keep building and make a statement this year.”

Edward Onyia, Charnwood College

Charnwood College displayed their potential to be a formidable force this year with a commanding 63-99 victory over SGS College in Bristol. Edward Onyia, much like Oboh, played a pivotal role, accumulating 22 points and 14 rebounds. Onyia has been a dual asset, representing both Charnwood and the Loughborough Riders in NBL Division One this season. In the five games he’s featured for the Riders, he’s been averaging 5.8 points and 3.8 rebounds per game, all in under 15 minutes of action. His continued strong performances can establish him as a premier option for both teams.

Matthew Goodwin, Manchester Magic

In their last game, the Manchester Magic secured a well-deserved victory over the Birmingham Rockets with a comfortable 70-90 scoreline. This time, it was Matthew Goodwin who played a pivotal role, delivering 35 points for his team. Riding high on his professional stint with the Manchester Giants, Goodwin currently ranks in the top ten in four significant categories in the EABL this season, including points, steals, and assists. The Magic will heavily rely on his contributions for the rest of the season if they aspire to contend for the title next year.

Daniel Nwauzu, Myerscough College

Once again, Daniel Nwauzu secures a well-deserved spot among our top performers. He aided Myerscough College in securing a 57-69 win over Sheffield College, pushing them to joint leadership in the EABL Northern Conference alongside the Manchester Magic. This highly touted wing is leading the EABL scoring charts and efficiency rating, while also ranking in the top ten for three-point percentage and total rebounds. In the last game, Nwauzu tallied 29 points, 11 rebounds, and two assists, confirming his strong start to the EABL campaign.

Isaac Round, JMA Reading Rockets

Isaac Round of JMA Reading Rockets is another player dominating on all fronts this season. In his team’s 95-77 victory over Oakland Wolves Basketball, Round displayed a near-triple-double performance, recording 22 points, seven rebounds, nine assists, and four steals. JMA’s star player has made an impressive start to the EABL campaign, averaging over 19 points per game. Speaking with EliteScholars, Round noted,

“Wednesday was a great outing for us as we continue to build better chemistry. I was able to create opportunities for myself, which contributed to our offensive flow. We hope to continue this momentum and secure a playoff spot later in the season.”
