The National Basketball League of Canada is pleased to announce that Juan Pattillo of the Windsor Express has been named Central Division Player of the Week for the week ending March 17, 2017. This is the second time that Pattillo has claimed this honour.

Pattillo, a 6'7" forward who played collegiately at Western Kentucky, scored 26 points in Windsor's 93-89 victory over Niagara to keep the Express in the playoff hunt.

"Juan has really changed the makeup of our team," said Windsor head coach Bill Jones. "The 4 position in our league is one of the best positions, so with a guy that can match up with Royce White and Justin Moss and Chris Commons has been a big advantage to us. He's a tremendous rebounder and a tremendous scorer."​

ATLANTIC DIVISION PLAYER OF THE WEEK

The National Basketball League of Canada is pleased to announce that Tydran Beaty of the Moncton Miracles has been named Atlantic Division Player of the Week for the week ending March 17, 2017.

Beaty, a 6'7" forward who played collegiately at Benedict College, averaged 17.3 ppg and 8.0 rpg in three wins for the Miracles, helping Moncton move up the standings in the Atlantic Division.

"Tydran started really fast this season," said Miracles head coach Paul Mokeski, "and then got bogged down a little bit, and over the last few weeks he's gotten back to basics. He uses his ahleticism in the right way, he can chase down rebounds most people don't get, and he's finishing more. When he does a one-dribble pull-up instead of a three-point shot, he's more efficient. It's a huge reason why we've gone on this run."

It's been a season of growth for him," said Lightning head coach Kyle Julius. "He does have a mental illness that he has to fight and work through and live with it on a daily basis, he did have a stigma that he hadn't played for so long, if you look at what he's done so far, he's shown you that he's consistently and mentally present every day, and he's an exceptional athete, a great basketball player and an excellent teammate, and he's flown with us several times this year. He's proven the naysayers wrong, and he's only getting better for us."​

"Today he was 5 for 6 from 3 and they were all big threes," said Riptide head coach Rob Spon. "From the second day he got here, he said, 'Coach this will be my team in the next five days,' he had everybody believing in him. He makes everybody better on the team, he works hard in practice and he's tough as nails. We do closeout drills, he guards anybody one-on-one, and the last three games he's led us, big shots and running the offence and getting everybody running. One of the fastest guys in the league, just a blur. that's what I love about the kid."

“Stef puts his work in every day and is a great teammate,” said Brandon Lesvosky, Orangeville A’s head coach. “His main focus is to do whatever it takes to help the team win, ye wants to do it.

"He's overall more involved in the game, and he is a good defensive player when he sets his mind to it. On offence, he's attacking the rim more, and he's making better decisions. And now he's developing his three-point stroke, and that makes him a difficult guy to defend."​

"The fact that he really never takes a play off, whether it's in practice or in a game, is part of his talent," said Hurricanes head coach Mike Leslie. "Tyrone is willing to guard the best player on the other team, and in many cases he's the undersied player in that matchup. He relishes that challenge and takes it on. He's just a warrior from that standpoint, and you always know what you're going to get from him each night."​

"Melvin has NBA talent, he can really shoot the ball with range, he's good at getting open and creating shots for himself, and he really proved it Saturday night. What he's been doing little by little is improving his defence, that is a big key for him to play both sides of the ball. The more he does that, the better his career will turn out."
