Jelson Homes DMU Leicester Riders forward Ayron Hardy further strengthened his MVP credentials with another Team of the Week performance for Rob Paternostro’s side over the course of the weekend.
The versatile rookie has been named in the BBL select team for an incredible tenth time this season following two massive performances in Riders’ back-to-back road games against Newcastle Eagles and Glasgow Rocks.
Whilst the Riders succumbed to an 87-79 defeat to Newcastle Jets at Sports Central on Friday evening, Hardy – who recently recorded two consecutive triple-doubles – hit a massive 17 points, 7 boards and four assists as the Alabama-born forward performed at both ends of the floor.
In the Riders 56-76 victory over Glasgow Rocks on Sunday night, Hardy once again lit up the scoring charts – leading the Riders scorers with a huge 22 points en route to ANOTHER double-double, with Ayron pulling down 13 rebounds.
It’s the latest in notch in an incredible first season in BBL for Hardy, who has proven to not only be Mr. Consistency for Leicester Riders this year – but one of the most versatile and consistent players in the league.
