The National Basketball League of Canada is pleased to announce that Terry Thomas of the Moncton Magic has been named Atlantic Division Player of the Week for the week ending February 11, 2018. This is the second time this season that Thomas has earned this honour.
Thomas, a 6'4" forward who played at the University of Ottawa, averaged a team-high 19.5 points per game in two massive Moncton Magic victories, in which the team outscored its opponents 262-209.
"We're starting to find our stride," said Magic head coach Joe Salerno, "to get on the same page offencively, we found that and we're playing well. Terry's the guy on our team, he draws the toughest defencive assignments, yet he still contributes on the offencive side as well, and he's having a great year."
The National Basketball League of Canada is pleased to announce that Chad Frazier of the Windsor Express has been named Central Division Player of the Week for the week ending February 11, 2018.
Frazier, a 6'4" guard who played collegiately at Alabama-Birmingham, averaged 20.0 ppg in three games for the Express, including two Windsor wins.
"What Chad has done a good job for us is scoring, he averaged 20 points in our two wins, he's able to get to the basket and shoot the three as well, and to get to the free throw line and score. Those are things that are able to help us in our two wins this week. It's not how you start, it's how you finish. The guys are buying into our process, so we're starting to play well."
