Saah Nimley continues to prove his exceptional qualities for Newcastle Eagles in the British Basketball League (BBL) after the Liberian-born basketball star was named in the BBL ALL-Star Five – Week 2.
Having been named in the week-one All-star Five, Nimley maintained his name in the All-Star Five. The 24-year-old once again proved another class after the Eagles defeated Manchester Giants 102-70.
The point guard scored 17points with teammates Terry Martin and Jaysean Paige scoring 15points apiece.
Nimley was joined in week-two All-Star Five by Neil Watson of Plymouth Raiders, Justin Robinson and Demonte Flannigan, both of London Lions and Tony Wroblicky of DBL Sharks Sheffield.
The point guard was named in week-one All-Star Five after he showed his scoring and creative ability with 27 points – 3 points behind the game’s highest scorer Jaysean Paige – and 7 assists, as well as 4 rebounds and 2 steals against Leeds Force.
The Eagles will this weekend host London Lions at the Sport Central as they search for their second home victory and third league victory.
