Other players will also receive a shout out as honourable mentions at the bottom of the piece.
Bruggeman put on an assist-heavy performance in Derby’s Midlands derby win over Nottingham that was even more impressive for the fact in came with no turnovers and four steals.
Bruggeman’s two-way performance, especially in the third quarter where he racked up seven assists and three steals, played a key role in Derby’s 49 team FG% and 24 points from Hoods’ turnovers.
Igor Stokic announced himself this weekend as the Lions recorded their maiden win of the regular season on the road at Westminster with a Player of The Week-worthy double-double performance.
Stokic really impressed in the fourth, with a pair of blocks to stop Westminster widening a two-point lead on two occasions, followed up by five quick points before closing the game out with a pair of freebies to hand the Lions a 16-point lead.
The former L Lynch Trophy Final MVP has been involved in some epic duels with Thames Valley, once again Arissol secured the dub and recorded a similar stat line as in the 2021 Trophy showpiece.
The former league DPOY sent a reminder that he is a constant threat at both ends, as he led all players in points (24) with a 58FG% and steals (4).
Orlan Jackman is on a quest to add to his trophy cabinet after winning gold in the Commonwealth Games this summer. A winning double-double performance will help along the way.
Jackman especially excelled in the first quarter, a two-way performance as part of the team ensured the cavaliers never really held a convincing leading position in the entire game. Jackman recorded a pair of offensive rebounds in the opening quarter, both resulted in buckets, as he finished the first with eight points to his name as Worthing built a 10-point lead.
Josh Moore took the Magic out of Manchester with a perfect shooting performance off the bench in a 16-minute cameo on the road.
Moore’s first bucket came at the end of the third to narrow the deficit to two points heading into the final quarter. A 17-point fourth-quarter performance alongside as his team took the period 30-12, ensured Moore and Newcastle ran away with a 16-point win.
Hemel put on a statement win versus Essex as everyone who took a shot at least flirted with getting double digits points, at team shooting of 58FG%.
A 33-12 third quarter well and truly tilted the scales as Hemel were just too strong for Essex. Honourable mention to Jack Burnell with a 10P(4-7FGM)/3A/2S from the bench.
It was tough going at times for the Riders but four of the starting five combined for 63 of Loughborough’s 71 points to lead their team the dub over Bradford.
Joe Bielak earned an honourable mention for his two-way performance while stand-out guard Justin Hedley again did a bit of everything.
