Durham Wildcats are rewarded for only their second win in the BBL this season with two places in the BBL Team of the Week.
Mike Capocci and Chris Pearce make the team following the hard fought home victory over Cheshire Jets, which keeps alive the Wildcats’ hopes for a play-off place.
The pair are joined by two players from north east rivals Newcastle Eagles, who continued their march at the top of the championship with a win over Mersey Tigers. Joe Chapman and Charles Smith, fresh from being crowned MVP at the BBL Cup Final earlier in the month, make the selection.
Completing the five is Glasgow’s Gareth Murray, who scored 26 points as the Rocks bounced back from a shock home defeat against Mersey to defeat title chasing Leicester.
Team: Joe Chapman (Newcastle), Chris Pearce (Durham), Charles Smith (Newcastle), Gareth Murray (Glasgow), Mike Capocci (Durham).
Bench: Anthony Rowe, Lehmon Colbert (both Plymouth), Demarius Bolds (MK), Colin O’Reilly, Matt Schneck (both Cheshire), Ayron Hardy (Leicester)
