Player of the Week: Sam Turner

Derby College/Noel Baker School’s Sam Turner has been named EABL Player of the Week for games played during the week beginning  3rd March 2014.

The 6’8″ big man scored eight of his points in the final quarter and led a defensive effort that prevent All Saints Academy from scoring for the final four minutes of the game to give Derby a 82-64 win.

Tuner finished with 22 points, 15 rebounds, 4 assists, 3 steals and a block, going 10/13 from the field, to keep Derby’s slim chances of the EABL All-Midlands regular season title alive at 6-2.

“He was excellent at both ends, we wanted to get the ball inside to him as much as possible but struggled to do so at times,” said Derby Head Coach Matt Shaw. “He did a superb job of getting on the glass and making it happen for himself today and got a lot of scores near the basket.”

Derby return to action on Wednesday 12th March, looking to get a three game win streak going when they face Birmingham Met at home..
