Rashad Hassan and Neil Watson were named to the BBL Team of the Week this week following positive performances in the victory of Surrey United and on the road in London.

Neil Watson featured in the BBL Team of the Week on the opening weekend of the season, the guard comes storming back for his second appearance in our line-up with real style. Watson produced the best performance of the week in the BBL after claiming an excellent performance valuation of 35 in the success at Surrey United. He poured in 20 points from an absolutely flawless shooting night which witnessed him make all six of his shots from either side of the three-point line and all six of his free-throws. He also had six rebounds and two steals, but it was completing a double-double with a magnificent 10 assists which stole the show.

Rashad Hassan is becoming renowned as one of the most consistent big men in the league, he claims his first slot in the BBL Team of the Week this season after a powerful and unstoppable display against Surrey United. The Riders’ forward was rampant and corralled a mammoth 34 points as he shot 16 of 21 at the hoop which is an outstanding 76% return on such high volume shooting. Just missing out on a double-double by a single rebound, Hassan also added two big blocked shots and an assist as his team dominated their opponents.

Leicester Riders return to BBL action this Saturday night as they take on the Glasgow Rocks as they look to take the season series 2-1.
