Agu earns EABL Team of the Week honours

PRESTON, England – Myerscough forward Franklin Agu was named to the EABL Team of the Week for Week 3 following his 15-point and 16-rebound performance against Charnwood on Saturday.

It is Agu’s first Team of the Week selection and fourth Myerscough individual honour and recognition in the last two seasons. The EABL returned to action with a seven-week no-champion Summer Showcase at the start of May to give student-athletes a chance to see the floor with the easing of government guidelines on sport due to COVID-19.

Myerscough raced past Charnwood 85-53 on Saturday behind 17 points from Zeki Cavli. Agu, meanwhile, turned in a double-double, hitting 7-of-13 shots for 15 points to go with his game-high 16 rebounds — five coming at the offensive end of the floor — in just 23 minutes. He added three steals and two assists.

Myerscough returns to action on Thursday, May 27 at Derby with tipoff set for 5:45 pm.
