Newcastle’s Joe Chapman is the strong favourite to be the BBL Player of the Month after securing his fifth consecutive appearance in the Team of the Week.
He racked up 24 points in Friday night’s win over Durham Wildcats and he is joined in the selection by Leicester’s Ayron Hardy, who makes the team for the eighth time this season.
Chapman’s Newcastle team-mate Andy Thomson secures a back-to-back place in the team, recording a double-double of 14 points and 15 rebounds.
Worcester’s Richie Gordon is another player who is no stranger to the team of the week this season, making his sixth appearance, and he is well in the running for the MVP award at the end of the season. He recorded a double-double of 20 points and 10 rebounds in Saturday’s win over MK Lions.
The line-up is completed by Gordon’s Wolves team mate, Spaniard Carlos Fernandez.
Team: Joe Chapman (Newcastle), Carlos Fernandez (Worcester), Ayron Hardy (Leicester), Andy Thomson (Newcastle), Richie Gordon (Worcester)
