Player of the Week: Shaquille Walters

City of London Academy’s Shaquille Walters has been named the EABL Player of the Week for Week 15 of the 2015-16 season.

Walters led CoLA to two important wins during the week to help keep their hopes alive of the number 1 seed in the East, first defeating JMA 50-80, before taking down Itchen in a top of the table clash with a 78-72 win.

Against JMA, Walters stuffed the stat sheet with 14 points, 6 rebounds, 4 assists and 6 steals, before following it up with 20 points, 10 rebounds, 2 assists and 1 steal on 6/11 shooting against Itchen.

“I wasn’t expecting this, I saw some of the other stat lines around the league so didn’t think I was in with a shout this week,” Walters said on winning the award.

“We were really happy with the wins last week as JMA and Itchen are both very good teams, I’ve just been trying to do my best to make sure we get home court in the playoffs, I’m really looking forward to the post season.”

CoLA Head Coach Sterling Muschett added:

“Shaq’s really matured this year, he understands the game so picks and chooses when and how he can impact the game best. Last week was a good week for him and we’re happy with his attitude towards the season thus far, long may it continue.”

CoLA will take on BHASVIC on Wednesday as all the day’s results will determine final playoff seedings.
