Osobor named Week 4 EABL Player of the Week


PRESTON, England – Myerscough Basketball forward Great Osobor was named EABL Player of the Week for Week 4 of the 2021 Summer Showcase, the league announced on Thursday.

It’s Osobor’s first Player of the Week selection and fifth Myerscough Player of the Week honour in the last two seasons. Osobor’s individual recognition comes off the back of fellow frontcourt mate Franklin Agu being named to the Team of the Week for Week 3.

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.

Osobor, who committed to Montana State back in October, posted 26 points on 11-of-14 shooting (79 percent) to go with 12 rebounds for his second-straight double-double performance. Myerscough, meanwhile, defeated Derby 103-74 last Thursday on the road.

Myerscough returns to action the weekend commencing June 12th, with game day information for the tilt against James Watt to be confirmed.
