Leicester Riders Ayron Hardy continues to collect accolades, even as Riders season reaches a thrilling climax.
Completing a brilliant rookie regular season and continuing his scorching run of form, the Jelson Homes DMU backed Riders star, Hardy has again won the Molten BBL Player of The Month Award for April, thereby landing the honour for successive months.
Hardy takes the award for his sterling efforts during a month when he helped his team find their form and storm into the last four of the BBL play-offs.
It’s been a busy and gruelling month for Riders with no fewer than nine games, seven of which Riders won, and Hardy has consistently delivered top quality performances, which is reflected in an average performance valuation score of 21.56.
While Hardy managed to average nearly 13 points per game, at an excellent shooting percentage of 62%, it was helping his colleagues where Hardy truly excelled, helping his team crank things up a notch at both ends of the floor.
He led the BBL in steals during April with 2.8 per game and also dished out a magnificent 6.2 assists per game, which was the second best average in the league.
Hardy also finished the regular season with more BBL Team Of The Week appearances than any other player.
An incredible contributor in every facet of the game, the multi-skilled wing man will now be looking to ensure his team finishes with some silverware.
Riders will fight it out with Glasgow Rocks for a place in the BBL Play Off Final against either Newcastle Eagles or Cheshire Jets at the National Indoor Arena on Saturday 12th May.
Riders travel to Glasgow on Friday night at the Kelvin Hall, while the return leg is next Sunday at Loughborough University at 3:30pm.
