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

Teddy Allen has been named February’s British Basketball League Player of the Month.

Allen averaged 28.6 points and 7.6 rebounds during February, including back-to-back 35 point performances.

He became the first British Basketball League player to score 35 in consecutive Championship games since 2012, and the second player to post 35 points, 12 rebounds and 5 assists since 2008.

The Phoenix-born wing is the League’s leading scorer this season, putting up 24.8 points per game, and the Riders’ leading rebounder, pulling down 6.6 per game.

His play saw him named captain of Team South for the upcoming British Basketball League All-Star game.

It is the second time winning the award for Allen, who was named Player of the Month in December following his explosive arrival in the middle of the month.

Allen returns to action on Sunday, where the Riders will face the Bristol Flyers on the road.
