EABL Player of Week 20 – Sanmi Fajana

Last week saw the regular season draw to a close in week 20, with our final Player of the Week award going to Myerscough College’s Sanmi Fajana.

Fajana recorded an impressive stat line of 22 points, 13 rebounds, four assists, three steals and two blocks as Myerscough won the game on the road to Derby 83-80, sealing their unbeaten season as Fajana hit a crucial three on the buzzer to win it.

He said: “Being named EABL Player of the Week is quite an achievement, especially the fact the game was won in the closing stages after being down by 22 points, and to play a role in the comeback and help secure the unbeaten regular season is a great feeling. Coach Neal [Hopkins] puts his players in positions to be successful and we really showed our character as a team to fight back.”
