Teddy Allen named British Basketball League Player of the Month for December

Riders guard Teddy Allen has been named Molten British Basketball League Player of the Month for December! 

Allen, a new arrival who made his League debut on December 15, has exploded onto the British basketball scene in his four games so far in Riders red, averaging a League-leading 23.8 points and 5.5 rebounds. 

His 32 point debut against Caledonia Gladiators was the highest-scoring debut in the British Basketball League since 2016. 

Teddy “Buckets” followed up the 30-piece with 22 points against the Manchester Giants, 17 against the Bristol Flyers and 25 to close out 2023 against the Sheffield Sharks. 

This summer’s CEBL MVP has lived up to his stellar reputation in the early stages of his Riders tenure and looks to lead the team to a successful British Basketball League Trophy campaign in January. 

“It’s an honour to win this award,” commented Allen.  “It feels great to bring positive attention to the team.

“Thank you to my teammates and coaches for putting me in a position to succeed, and thank you to everybody who voted for me!

“Now it’s time to continue to work hard and try and bring the Trophy home.”
