Fletch Gets The All-Star Start With Dre On The Bench

Published: 14th February, 2017
BBL All-Star Five – Week 19
We have a debutante, a Great Britain favourite and the reigning BBL MVP in our line-up this week.

Rahmon Fletcher (Esh Group Eagles Newcastle)
While the form of the Eagles has been up and down during recent weeks, the play of the point guard and league’s MVP has remained high. Fletcher booked his fourth starting appearance of the season off the back of a nice display against Leeds Force. He shot 62% from the floor as he returned 24 points, while also handing out six assists in front of the faithful at Sport Central.

Daryl Corletto (Plymouth Raiders)
Our second backcourt star also bags his fourth starting place of the campaign as well, with the Australian spearheading a dazzling BBL Trophy first leg victory against Worcester Wolves. Corletto was on fire from behind the arc at the Pavilions as he sunk six triples en-route to a fabulous 23 points, while also registering seven rebounds and four assists in the best performance of the week.

Chaz Rollins (Surrey Scorchers)
The forward finds himself as a weekly All-Star starter for the very first time after providing the main thrust for his team’s Sunday success. Rollins was instrumental in Scorchers hanging on Cheshire as he recorded a sensational performance in the paint. He proved unstoppable as he made a stunning 9 of 10 to net 18 points against Phoenix while also snapping up five boards and two assists.

Kieron Achara (Glasgow Rocks)
The Great Britain star was on-song right across a fruitful weekend in the south-west for the Rocks who returned to home soil with a pair of victories under their belts. Effective against Flyers, Achara was even better 24 hours later in the win at Plymouth. He cut down the hometown Raiders with an all-action 19 points, seven rebounds, four assists and four blocked shots in a typically towering effort.

Maurice Walker (Worcester Wolves)
It’s a second appearance for Walker who has been a real power under the hoop for Wolves since his mid-season arrival in Worcester. He helped his side post a positive reaction to their Trophy setback in Devon by powering his way to a smart 16 points in the BBC Sport game against Manchester last Friday. He also harvested six rebounds, two blocks and a steal.

Off the bench – Shane Walker (Leicester Riders), Gareth Murray (Glasgow Rocks), Cory Dixon (Plymouth Raiders), Danny Huffor (Worcester Wolves), Rashad Hassan (London Lions), Raheem May-Thompson (Cheshire Phoenix), Deondre Parks (Esh Group Eagles Newcastle)
