Ethan Price has been named EABL Player of the Week for the second consecutive week, after the Copleston forward led his squad with a Week 3 effort of 26 points and 12 rebounds.

The 6’9″ big man’s performance helped guide Copleston to a tough 54-70 road win against John Madejski Academy, as Price also added three assists, two steals and five blocks. With point guard Ben Winter going down with injury early in the contest, Price was able to steady the ship, as the freshman showed maturity to lead his team to the win.

Upon receiving back-to-back Player of the Week nominations, Price said, “I was very shocked but pleased to receive this award again. We knew that playing JMA away from home would be a tough game, but we all stepped up and played our roles. This was particularly important after Ben went down with an injury. We played good defence throughout, and played together as a team.”

Copleston Head Coach Nick Drane added, “Ethan is, as I expected he would, making a name for himself very quickly at this level. With Ben out for essentially the whole game we needed everyone to take on more responsibility and Ethan certainly did that.”
