CBL Players of the Month – November 2022

After getting the season underway and a few stats hiccups in the early goings, we’ve now compiled November’s stats and are delighted to highlight some key players from the last month of Tier 2 play.

Across the three groups there’s been some high-quality basketball played, meaning there were a number of worthy candidates for November’s awards.

Still, only three winners could get the nod, and we’ve got a round up of the well-deserving recipients below.

Group A

Stoke-on-Trent’s Shawn Jamison Jr. has been on a tear in November, posting some truly eye catching point hauls for his side.

Closing the month with an average of 38.8PPG, it’s no surprise that the talented guard was able to help his side to a 4-0 record across their four games.

Throwing in 8.8RPG and 4.8APG, Jamison’s efficiency was only pulled down by his volume shooting, but that’s a small knock on what was an excellent month.

Speaking about the award, Jamison Jr. said: “I’m thankful to be recognised for Player of the Month in November.

“I will continue to work hard on and off the court for the highest degree of success.”

Head coach Shawn Jamison Sr. added: “Shawn Jamison Jr. has put in the work and is getting big time results. Expect to see more of the same.”

Group B

Group B’s winner is New City College standout Josiah Asantewa-Philips.

A stunning monthly double-double of 18.7PPG and 18.3RPG has helped his team to go to work, and an efficiency rating of 34.0 shows just how much of an impact he’s had for his side, despite only starting his season at the beginning of November due to injury.

A 22 point, 28 rebound double-double in a 77-58 win against Holy Trinity was a highlight, as was a 27/15 output against Mayfield School, helping his team to a 89-47 victory.

New City also knocked off defending champs Dagenham Park 88-84 to begin the month, a statement road win for a programme who no doubt are hungry for success this season.

Speaking about the award, Josiah said: “It’s an honour to receive this award. Missing the first month of the season due to injury was difficult but dedication, sacrifice and hard work is what I have committed to this season.

“I’m just taking this season one game at a time, both domestically and internationally.”

Group C

Wrapping us up in Group C is Myers Amoo-Gottfried, who’s had a month of video game numbers for Bracknell & Wokingham College.

To come close to 46.7 efficiency rating in a single game is incredibly impressive, but to AVERAGE it over a month is truly wild.

34.0PPG and 12.3RPG went with 5.0APG, with Amoo-Gottfried playing an understandably key role every time his team was on the court.

Sizable wins over Barton Peveril College and Northolt High School were impressive, and only a 93-92 loss against CBL powerhouse Haringey Sixth Form College stopped Bracknell & Wokingham from a clean sweep in November.

Speaking about the award, Amoo-Gottfried said: “Thanks for the award, it means so much to me. I would like to thank my coaches and teammates for their assistance and help.

“But I  won’t be getting complacent, as my goal is a championship and me and my team will strive for our goal.”

Head coach Martin Amoo-Gottfried added: “Myers has been outstanding all year. He has shown a consistent level of excellence and keeps surpassing his own levels.

“He is a fierce competitor and is very focused on trying to make his team successful. He is one of the most complete all around scorers I have ever seen.

“I think this award is well deserved and it will provide even more motivation and self confidence.”
