Albert Margai, Ladi Brown, Mike Medved and Adrian Fenyn all feature in the top 20 leading scorers on the weekend
Recieved all the scoresheets through from the BUCS Men’s Basketball Final 8’s yesterday and took it upon myself to put through a leading scorers table (as that is the only stat that is available!) and top performances of the weekend. If you have any individual enquiries about players, drop a comment and I’ll get back to you!

There were only two players who broke the 20 point mark in every game they played, Leed Metropolitan’s Adrian Fenyn (39, 21, 28) and London Metropolitan’s Arturo Noha (22, 21, 24)
The only player to break the 30 point barrier more than once was Oxford’s Steven Danley, with 36 vs Leeds Met and 30 vs Worcester.
There is not one British player in the top 5 scorers (though 5 through 10 are all British), and only 2 in the top ten individual performances.
Modestas Sidlaukas if not for being injured early into his second game and then not playing again, would have likely been in the top 5 after dropping 25 in his first game, and 8 in the limited minutes he played before getting injured.
Looking over individual player averages, Leeds Met really are not deep outside of their starting 5.
No surprise to see Adrian Fenyn number one after his tear this season in EBL D1.
Durham have the most balanced scoring out of any of the teams, with a number of players hitting double digits over the weekend.
Nils Steuber was on no-ones radar going in to the Final 8’s and surprised a lot of people.
Worcester’s Kastytis Normantas and Loughborough’s Dave Holland were tied with the most three’s in a game over the weekend, both hitting 6 in separate performances.
There was a lot of poor free throw shooting over the Final 8’s. Danley could have had 40+ vs Leeds Met after missing 6, whilst a number of other players missed some crucial free throws (Zoltan Supola missed 3 straight in the closing minutes of the final, Roy Owen missed 4 in crunch time of one of Worcester’s games).

We have a tiny favour to ask. In 2018 we set out to make Hoopsfix sustainable by building our relationship directly with our readers. Up until now, Hoopsfix has been creating editorials, videos and podcasts to provide sorely missing coverage of the British game and its distinct culture and community.
We have funded Hoopsfix with our freelance work creating basketball media, but sadly that means not only does it fall behind our client’s priorities, but some of those clients are the same organisations we need to report objectively on putting us in a conflicted position.
We want to devote more time to our mission of helping British basketball reach its potential, and produce even more content for the basketball community by making Hoopsfix a sustainable 100% independent business funded directly by our readers through Patreon.
If everyone who enjoys our content chose to support us, our future would be much more secure. For as little as $3 per month, you can support Hoopsfix – and it only takes a minute.
We are tremendously honoured and humbled to have a community of people who value what we do, and we look forward to being at the forefront of the British game as it continues to evolve.
