The Rebound Team of the Week


Greg Skoric - Nottingham Hoods, centre


Greg Skoric again posted an efficient scoring performance alongside a double-double points and rebound stat line to earn Rebound’s NBL Player Of The Week.

Skoric split his 24 points evenly from an impressive first and second half performance; the Skidmore College alumni was a continuous threat inside the paint at both ends.

Hakeem Sylla – Hemel Storm, forward


Hakeem Sylla put on a shooting masterclass in a sub 20-minute performance to lead Hemel to a road trip win.

Sylla made his mark early on, accounting for eight of Hemel’s first 11 points, Sylla’s impact in the first quarter ensured Hemel were in the driving seat with a 13-point advantage.

That hot start played a big part in the 16-point dub across what was otherwise a close game.

Sam Masten - Derby Trailblazers, guard


In what is becoming a regular occurrence, Derby's Sam Masten once again makes my Team Of The Week with a performance that flirted with a triple-double.

The guard set off quickly and was directly involved in seven of Derby’s 11 successful scoring sets, including an and-one play.

Masten’s first quarter efforts ensured a 5-point lead heading into the second, and set Derby on their way to a valuable win.

Johde Campbell – Nottingham Hoods, guard 


Johde Campbell put on a point and assist double-double masterclass this weekend. Campbell shot and handled the ball efficiently and influenced the game heavily in the 34-point win.

In the most open quarter, Campbell was directly involved in all but one made field goal, including two buckets in transition from his own steals.

Zack Powell - Reading Rockets, guard


It was a double celebration for the flashy guard this weekend, celebrating a birthday as well as a win.

Powell was not to be stopped with a steal and five points down the stretch, including an and-one to secure the a win in front of the NBL Live cameras.

Team basketball

Hemel Storm responded to last week’s run-breaking loss with a team performance where every player contributed to rebounding and scoring.
