Player of the Week: Aaron Badibo

New City College’s Aaron Badibo has received the ABL Player of the Week after his monster double-double of 38 points and 10 rebounds against King Henry School last Wednesday.

The game was a tough home encounter for Hackney which saw them hold off a spirited King Henry side to take the spoils, 78-75 in a keenly contested game. Badiibo’s 38 points, which lead all scorers in week 13 of the ABL, was the driving factor behind his teams victory.

Badibo has this to say on his performance: “The game was pretty tough we were executing on the offensive side however we kept allowing the team to come back with a score. Towards the 4th quarter the started to widen to where we  were up by 11 at a point but they challenged us and kept coming. At the end of it we were able to get the win. I want to thank God for allowing me to get selected for player of the week once again. I wouldn’t have been chosen if it weren’t for my teammates and coaches.”

Coach Andrea Boreland said: “Aaron is very productive every game he plays, he works both ends of the floor and is a pleasure to coach.”
