EABL Week 2 Round Up

The 2014-15 EABL season moved into its second week, with a number of team’s making their season debut.

North Conference

Milton Keynes College are the early leaders in the North after a second big win in as many weeks. They defeated Moulton 159-69 behind a huge performance from reigning MVP Michael New.  New had 39 points, 12 steals, 9 rebounds and 7 assists  to flirt with a quadruple double.

One of last year’s Final Four teams, Charnwood College, got off to a winning start with an 84-50 win over local rivals Gateway College, in front of a packed home gym. A balanced attack saw all 12 players get on the scoresheet, led by Henri Langton’s 17 point, 11 rebound double double on 8/10 shooting in his EABL debut.

Preston faced little competition on their way to a 102-24 rout of Tyne Met College. Preston’s 6’5″ forward Melkisedek Moreaux did most of the damage, scoring 30 points while grabbing 13 rebounds, while Jonathan Joseph had 9 points to go with his 13 assists and 13 steals.

Loreto picked up their second win on the season with a 74-57 victory over County Upper after being led by Raheem Idris, who put up 21 points, dished out 6 assists, had 5 steals and 4 rebounds.
