For the second year running, a member of our National Basketball League (NBL) team has been awarded the League’s Most Valuable Player (MVP) award.
This year, Phil Brandreth, an alumni member, has received the top regional award.
Phil, a graduate of the University, continues to represent the University in Basketball England national club competitions and has been awarded the Most Valuable Player award for the National Basketball League Division 3 North by Basketball England.
Nominations for the award are made by the other teams from the North Division, with Phil receiving the most nominations.
Throughout the year Phil has been a key figure for our NBL side in a season which saw them reach the semifinals of the National Shield, narrowly miss out on the league title, finishing second and also reach the quarterfinals of the National Playoffs.
While the NBL team was unfortunate to miss out on trophies, it is fantastic for one of our player’s to be recognised by his peers for his excellent performances for the second year running.
