With just one more week of NBL action to go before the end of 2019, we've got another five worthy winners of our NBL Player of the Week awards after some stunning performances across the divisions. As always, we'll release the winners throughout Thursday afternoon, and congrats to all those selected this week.
Our D3 weekly winner is 18-year-old Miko Makowski from Taunton Tigers.
The exciting youngster had a lights-out game against Cardiff Met Archers, dropping 47 points as part of a 108-71 road win for the Tigers. The win pushed Taunton's record to 6-3 in the South West Conference, good for joint 3rd place.
“It’s a real honour to be named Player of the Week," said Makowski.
"It was a great all round team performance that allowed me to shine."
Chelsey Hallam has walked away with our D2W award, the Brighton player was a worthy recipient in week 12.
Brighton currently sit at 3-2 in the South Conference and Hallam's 24 points proved instrumental in the South coast side's 95-48 road win against Northamptonshire Titans last Saturday.
"We're all extremely proud of Chelsey at Brighton on receiving the Player of the Week award, Chelsey trains and plays hard!" said head coach Matt Glasson.
After helping Sussex to grab their 2nd win of the season, Tomas Seduikis has been selected as the D2M Player of the Week.
Seduikis had a 25 point, 11 rebound double-double in the 100-86 win over Cardiff, adding six assists and two steals for a final efficiency rating of 38.
"It’s an amazing feeling to be named Player of the Week," confessed Seduikis,
"We showed character, we played as a team and got the win. For me personally, that’s the most important thing."
In a selection that will surprise few, Ipswich's Harriet Welham has once again been awarded D1W Player of the Week honours.
Week 12 represents the fourth time Welham has picked up the award, with recognition in weeks 2, 4 and 7.
The latest selection comes off the back of a 37 point, 16 rebound double-double that helped the Suffolk side beat rivals Reading 90-89 in a thrilling match up near the summit of D1W. Welham also dished a pair of assists, nabbed two steals and recorded two blocks for an efficiency rating of 24.
Martelle McLemore is our D1M Player of the Week after a strong performance against Westminster.
The talented wing finished with an efficiency rating of 50 thanks to 45 points, eight rebounds, four assists and three steals as the Cavs eased past the Warriors 114-93.
The victory puts Thames Valley in a four-way tie for 2nd in D1M, creating an exciting group to watch heading into 2020.
"It’s an honour to be named Basketball England’s Player of Week," said McLemore.
"I want to thank my coaches and teammates who helped make this possible.
"We look forward to the coming weeks as we continue to work hard and improve as a team.”
We'll have week 13's NBL awards next Tuesday rather than Thursday as so not to clash with the Christmas holidays.
