This week's Team of the Week features both regulars and newcomers, and is dominated by the Everton Tigers, who had two victories last weekend to get their season back on track. The star performer is Tigers' Forward Jerome Gumbs. In both games, Gumbs grabbed 10 rebounds as well as putting up 27 points in the first one, a home tie against the Guildford Heat which the Tigers won 84-72, and 35 points in the next one, when the Tigers beat the Newcastle Eagles away from home. He also dished out 4 assists in both outings as well as 5 steals in the game against the Heat.
He is joined by team mate Olu Babalola, as the former Newcastle Eagle notched 23 points, 8 rebounds and 8 steals in the Heat tie, as well as shooting 100% from behind the arc.
This week's guards are Mike Cook, who now features regularly in the Team of the Week, and Jelson Homes DMU Leicester Riders standout, Bradd Wierzbicki. Cook, who stands at 6'4'' and plays for the Sheffield Sharks, had a huge 32 points, on 9/12 field goal shooting, and 5/7 from the free throw line, as well as nailing three of his five three point attempts, in the Sharks 97-76 defeat of the Cheshire Jets.
He then bettered this with a 36 point haul at Newcastle the following night, making eleven of his fourteen free throws, and handing out five assists in a full forty minutes of action.
Wierzbicki had an incredible second half in his side's come-from-behind win over the Worcester Wolves on Saturday evening, to finish with 38 points. This was an outstanding performance, especially considering he played out of position at the point guard after his back court partner, Tack Minor, was rushed to hospital with an eye injury in the first half.
At Centre in the Team of the Week number seven, is Tafari Toney, who is having a sensational second season in the league with his new team, the Sheffield Sharks. He second top scored to team mate Mike Cook, as he posted impressive numbers of 19 points, on 9/12 from the field, as well as snatching 12 rebounds.
