Jacob and Thomas-Edwards named in BBL Team of the Week

Trejon Jacob and Raphell Thomas Edwards have both been named in the BBL Team of the Week.

A short-handed Flyers put in a pair of incredible performances over the weekend to win on consecutive nights, firstly beating the Sheffield Sharks live on Sky Sports and then overcoming Glasgow Rocks, with a near triple-double from Jacob, securing his second showing in the All-Star Five.

Jacob scored 15 points while grabbing nine rebounds and dishing out nine assists in the game, including six points, four boards and four assists in the 18-3 first quarter surge that put Flyers up for good, followed by seven points in a row in the 19-4 start to the third that put them out of sight.

Equally as impressive in the home win was Raphell Thomas-Edwards, who features in the All-Star Five for the first time this season after an excellent start with Bristol sitting third in the BBL Championship at 6-3.

He led all scorers with 24 points, shooting 7-9 (77%) inside and 3-7 (42%) from long-range, to go with seven rebounds and three assists, including seven points in the decisive early run as he firstly broke a tie and then hit a triple that sparked a 7-0 burst to send the lead into double-figures.
