EABL Top Performers: Game Week 13

As another game week in the Elite Academy Basketball League draws to a close, we take a look at some of the standout performers from the week’s fixtures!

Callum Smart, SGS College

SGS narrowly lost out to the Derby Trailblazers and with the game tied up at 70-70, the Blazers put their noses in front with just four seconds on the clock.

However, big man Callum Smart was excellent for the Bristol based side, dropping a season high 20 points along with seven rebounds and two blocks on an efficient outing.

Smart, 19, shot a highly respectable 57.1% from the field on 14 attempts, as well as nailing all three of his shots from beyond the arc, another season high for the big.

The 6’10 forward gave his all as he contributed his highest number of minutes this season (32:40) but unfortunately for Smart, SGS couldn’t get the win.

Genti Cokaj, Derby College Trailblazers

Derby got it done at the death in Bristol as stated earlier, and it was Genti Cokaj who netted the last-ditch bucket to give the Trailblazers a hard earned 72-70 win over SGS.

Cokaj led the way throughout for the Trailblazers, dropping a near double-double with 21 points and nine rebounds in the competitive affair.

With the game in the balance, Cokaj grabbed the last of his six offensive rebounds and laid it in at the second time of asking.

The 6’6 forward was efficient inside the arc, making 10 of his 16 two-point attempts, and led the game in scoring, claiming his season high for points.

Mou Wol-Cummings, City of London Academy

CoLA produced a great performance to upset the conference leaders Canterbury, winning 72-66 thanks to a couple of standout performers.

One of which was Mou Wol-Cummings, whose monster showcase was rewarded with the EABL Player of the Week award.

The CoLA captain astoundingly played almost 42 minutes and dropped a game high 24 points as well as eight rebounds, five assists and a steal to complete his stat line.

The 6’1 guard was faultless from the line, draining 11/11 of his free throws and shot an efficient 60% from the field.

Bilal Khan, City of London Academy

The guards were key for CoLA this week as Bilal Khan joins his captain in our top performers this week, and the 19-year-old was vital to their statement victory over Canterbury.

Khan provided 22 points, with 12 of them coming from three-point range, four rebounds and a block, assist and a steal.

This was Khan’s best shooting performance so far this season and what a time for it, coming against the conference leaders, the 5’11 guard made 60% of his efforts from the floor.

Returning for his third consecutive top performers appearance is Isaac Round, who produced an incredible 34 points and 12 rebounds, the JMA captain also dished out six assists.

The 6’4 star was excellent from the foul line and made a staggering 14 out of his 15 free throw attempts as he continues to show his dominance in the EABL.
