CENTRAL DIVISION PLAYER OF THE WEEK

The National Basketball League of Canada is pleased to announce that Doug Herring Jr. of the London Lightning has been named Central Division Player of the Week for the week ending February 19, 2017.

Herring, a 6'3" point guard who played collegiately at Utica (N.Y.) College, scored a team-high 27 points in London's 109-97 Saturday night home victory against the Orangeville A's; the win helped London maintain a 10-game winning streak.

"Doug is a premier point guard in this league," said London head coach Kyle Julius. "Doug has the ability to control the tempo on both sides of the ball, by scoring or by passing and with his defense. He's tough, and he deserves Player of the Week honours because he's been playing at such a high level. He's a huge part of our success now."​

ATLANTIC DIVISION PLAYER OF THE WEEK

The National Basketball League of Canada is pleased to announce that Melvin Johnson III of the Moncton Miracles has been named Atlantic Division Player of the Week for the week ending February 19, 2017.

Johnson, a 6'6" guard who played collegiately at Arkansas State, averaged 25.5 points this week for the Miracles, including scoring 37 points - with a 10-for-17 run from three-point range - in Moncton's 131-110 Saturday night victory over the Island Storm that broke the Miracles' five-game losing streak.

"We picked Melvin up around a month ago from watching film and talking to D-League coaches and NBA scouts," said Moncton head coach Paul Mokeski. "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."
