All-Star 5 – Week 21


There were some huge performances in perhaps the most exciting weekend of BBL Championship action so far this season, with the All-Star 5 led by some double-overtime heroics, a showtime performer live on Sky Sports, and a pair of players from the league’s form team, Cheshire Phoenix.

Antonio Williams – Plymouth City Patriots
Patriots have been involved in numerous exhilarating games of late, and none more so than a double-overtime win over South West rivals Bristol Flyers on Friday night, led by a huge performance from Antonio Williams as he played all 50 minutes to make a second All -Star 5 appearance of the season. He finished that marathon with a double-double of 35 points and 11 assists, adding five rebounds, four steals and two blocks, while proving a handful all night in drawing nine fouls and shooting 9-11 (81%) at the free-throw line. That included a massive 17 points in a third quarter during which the Patriots scored 30 to come from behind, as well as four points, three steals and two assists in the decisive second overtime period.

Newcastle Eagles – Justin Gordon
Newcastle have won all three games since Justin Gordon returned to the club, most recently beating northernmost rivals Glen Luss Glasgow Rocks live on Sky Sports to make his first All-Star 5 appearance this season. Gordon had 24 points in under 28 minutes, shooting 10-16 (62%) from the floor, along with nine rebounds, five steals and three assists. In a tight two-point win, during which they trailed for most of the first half, Gordon scored seven points and snatched five rebounds in a third quarter during which the Eagles turned it around with 30 points, followed by a crucial nine points in the fourth quarter as he either tied the game or put them in front on four occasions.

Larry Austin Jr. – Cheshire Phoenix
Cheshire have made it six straight wins in all competitions and are up to second in the BBL Championship after a pair of wins at the weekend, as Larry Austin Jr. gains weekly honors for the second time in four weeks and third time overall, as one of just twelve players in the league to reach that mark so far. He played a dominant 23 minutes on the road at Surrey Scorchers, coming close to a triple-double with 17 points, nine assists and seven rebounds, missing just twice as he shot 5-6 (83%) from the field and 7-8 (87%) from the free-throw line, including seven points in the first quarter and a pair of assists early in the second as Phoenix took a double-figure lead that they held from then on.

Conner Washington Leicester Riders
As he did last season, Washington stepped up emphatically in the absence of MVP point guard Geno Crandall to make his first All-Star 5 appearance of the year after Leicester had a big win on the road in Glasgow to go to 14-1 atop the BBL Championship. He played all 40 minutes and finished with 17 points on 6-10 (60%) shooting, completing a double-double with 10 rebounds and adding five assists. Riders scored a massive 68 points in the first half with a three-point barrage and Washington inspired that by hitting two triples early in the second quarter as he had 13 points in the period, with Leicester scoring 11 threes by the midway point.

Noah Dickerson – Cheshire Phoenix
Another big performance in Cheshire’s road win at Surrey on Friday came from Noah Dickerson as he emerged from the bench to put up a double-double and make his second All-Star 5 appearance of the season. He had 16 points on 6-10 (60%) shooting from the field and 4-5 (80%) at the free-throw line, along with 10 rebounds and a series of big defensive plays including four steals and three blocks. He scored six points from his own offensive rebounds, and dominated the second quarter as Phoenix opened a big halftime lead, scoring seven points with three rebounds and two blocks in that spell.

Off the bench: Ali Fraser (Glen Luss Glasgow Rocks), Jordan Harris (Glen Luss Glasgow Rocks), Rashad Hassan (Plymouth City Patriots), Zach Simmons (Bristol Flyers), Antwain Johnson (B. Braun Sheffield Sharks), Marc Loving ( Leicester Riders), Raphell Thomas-Edwards (Bristol Flyers).
