Player of the Week: Zack Powell

Zack Powell has been named ABL Player of the Week, after the Aston Manor Academy guard poured in a jaw-dropping 56 points in his squad’s Week 2 victory over Long Road Sixth Form College.

In addition to his scoring explosion, the second year guard stuffed the stat-sheet by adding seven rebounds, six assists and five steals. Powell’s efforts helped lead Aston Manor to a 120-48 win as the West Midlands side moved to 2-0 in the ABL Central Conference.

Powell looked to his teammates and coach upon receiving the award, saying, “I am really proud of what we achieved as a team and the outcome of the game. Coach gave us the free will to play off each other which is why the outcome was what it was.”

Aston Manor Head Coach Curtis Xavier added, “Zack’s a big talent. This is no surprise to the coaching staff and we hope he continues to work hard on his craft.”
