Player of the Week: Maya Hyacienth

Maya Hyacienth has been named as the Player of the Week after leading City of London Academy to victory in Week 3.

The 2000-born guard netted 23 points and added seven rebounds and seven steals in a 73-52 win at home to Copleston.

“I am very thankful to have been awarded Player of the Week,” Hyacienth said. “It was a very competitive game to have played as it was tied at the end of the second quarter.

“The talk from our coaches at half-time really helped us to give 100% as we all stepped up to the challenge collectively in the second half.

“I’m looking forward to the next game where our team can continue to develop and come together as one.”

Head Coach Jackson Gibbons added: “Really pleased for Maya, she’s transitioned well since coming to CoLA, has a very professional approach to both her schooling and basketball.

“We are glad to have her, Maya’s performance for me is just the tip of the iceberg, she has so much upside and the right mentality towards life that the sky is the limit for this young lady, that can only benefit the rest of the team too.”

Hyacienth and CoLA advance to the league play of the competition with the action stepping up in the New Year.
