The Rebound Team of the Week


Taylor Johnson - Hemel Storm, guard

19pts/7reb/8ast/24eff vs NOT
23pts/7reb/6ast/2stl/24eff vs Ess

Johnson was a threat throughout a winning double-header weekend against two top-eight sides to keep Hemel’s title chances alive. 

In the crunch game versus Essex, themselves in the title race, the two-time Rebound All Star contributed directly to five of Storm’s points down the stretch in the nine-point win. 

Ronald Blain - Bradford Dragons, guard

27pts/9reb/7ast/4stl/38eff @BAR
19pts/6reb/3ast/3stl/18eff @NOT

Seven points down the stretch from Blain in Saturday’s dub at Barking helped split the double-header weekend. It sets Bradford up to defend the sixth seed in their final head-to-head versus #7 Loughborough. 

Blain couldn't prevent heartbreak in the two-point loss at positional rivals Nottingham despite a late effort. 

Hafeez Abdul – Worthing Thunder, guard


Abdul showed his pedigree in a strong shooting performance either side of the arc to give Worthing a special two-point win on the road versus local rivals Reading. 

He led his side efficiently in three-pointers in what was one of the key components of the victory - as the rest of the roster shot 6-21 from downtown. 

Johde Campbell - Nottingham Hoods, guard

9pts/2reb/3ast/3eff @HEM
23pts/4reb/6ast/4stl/29eff vs bra

Campbell made up for an underwhelming stat-line in Saturday’s loss to Storm by being a key figure in Sunday’s win. The guard provided buckets for the Hoods down the stretch, contributing to seven clutch points in a two-point win that could be vital in securing a play-off spot. 

Brayden Inger - Hemel Storm, forward

21pts/7reb/3ast/24eff vs NOT
15pts/11reb/18eff vs Ess

In a Hakeem Sylla-less side, Inger was a strong rebounding and scoring presence as Inger averaged an impressive 50% from downtown across the winning double-header. 

He was key down the stretch in Sunday’s title-race game with five points down the stretch in the nine-point win.

Thunder roar on the road

Neither side had a lead bigger than seven points, but Worthing found a way to get a win on the road at Reading. 

All of Zaire Taylor’s nine-man rotation contributed to the scoring as Thunder made 45% of their field goals.
