NBL1 recap: 22/23 October 2022 - live streams, stats and more

Seven games made up the weekend in D1M, with all seven taking place on a busy Saturday.

Five unbeaten teams still remain, including Worthing, Hemel and Derby, whilst another five teams are still looking for their first win of the new season.

There's a recap of all the action below, and each result is also clickable if you wish to view the live stats. 

Derby Trailblazers (2-0) 92-63 Essex Rebels (2-1)

Derby continued their D1M dominance over Essex as the Trailblazers eased to a comfortable 92-63 victory.

The Rebels have never managed to top this past weekend's opponents in Division One and that streak continued here courtesy of a 32 point effort from Derby's Malcolm Smith.

The former D1M MVP led all scorers by some distance, with Rebels' Owen Chose the next closest man on 22 points.

Former Nottingham Hoods forward Mo Williams added a 17 point, nine rebound effort off the bench on his debut, and American guard Ryan Bruggeman chipped in 11 points, 10 assists and five boards.

The win leaves Coach Shaw's side unbeaten in the new season, though that run will be put to the test next weekend as DTB head to Thames Valley.

Elsewhere this weekend

London Lions II (0-3) just never really got going in a 97-48 road loss against Team Newcastle University (2-0). The Lions scored just 14 first half points to trail 54-14 at the break, with TNU's Jordan May (21pts, 8/10FG) the standout in that one.

Bradford Dragons (1-1) picked up their first win of the season as they beat Team Solent Kestrels (0-3) 83-60. A trip to the South coast was well worth it for the Yorkshire side, thanks in part to a game-high 25 points from Jordan Whelan.

Thames Valley Cavaliers (2-1) took care of business against Westminster Warriors (1-2), coming out on top 82-66. Jarrett Hart and Victor Olarerin both closed with 20 points to seal TVC's second win of the season.

After taking a back seat in recent weeks, Taylor Johnson served up a timely reminder of his talents as Hemel Storm (3-0) beat Loughborough Riders (0-3) 105-79.

The American closed with 25 points and 10 boards, as Hakeem Sylla (20pts, 15reb) and Aaryn Rai (22pts, 8reb) also featured heavily. Elijah Bailey top scored for Loughborough, he had 21 points.

A stunning performance from Joshua Guddemi helped Nottingham Hoods (3-0) stay unbeaten as they saw off Manchester Magic (0-3) 89-79.

Guddemi dropped 31 points to go with 12 rebounds in just over 30 minutes of action, with Seth Hall (18pts) the only other player into double-digits for the hosts. Andre Gayle top scored for the Magic on 18 points.

A busy Saturday closed with Worthing Thunder's (3-0) 109-63 win against Reading Rockets (0-2).

As has become the case more often than not, there were a number of stand out performances from the Thunder but David Moya topped them all.

The American closed on a game-high 26 points that included 6/8 3pt, adding six rebounds, four assists and four steals.
