There are just a handful of line-ups left of the current campaign and we've still managed to squeeze in yet another debutant.
Rahmon Fletcher (177-PG-88, college: Green Bay) (Esh Group Eagles Newcastle) It's been a painful time of late for the Eagles, whose title bid disintegrated after a number of damaging defeats. But, their star playmaker got them back on track at Sport Central last weekend. Fletcher showed his quality against Glasgow Rocks and finished with a game-high 26 points from 60% shooting, as well as adding four assists and three boards in an energetic offering.
Rashawn Rembert (190-G-93, college: E.Tenn.St.) (DBL Sharks Sheffield) It's been a while since Rembert appeared in our line-up, but he makes his return after helping Sheffield bounce back from defeat at Riders with a one-sided success in Manchester. He paved the way for victory by erupting for 27 points after a flawless shooting display from downtown. He made all five of his attempts from long-range and it was part of a simply stunning 10 of 11 from the field.
Jermel Kennedy (Worcester Wolves) There is no stopping the Molten BBL Player of the Month for March, who is continuing his rich vein of form into April and was the main man for Wolves in an exciting victory at Plymouth Raiders. Kennedy came within a whisker of posting a stellar triple double, after only just falling short by harvesting an all-action 12 points, nine rebounds and nine assists - as well as four steals.
Navid Niktash (London Lions) It's a first-ever appearance in our fantastic five for the Lions' forward after he guided his team to a commanding road win in Yorkshire. Niktash torched Leeds with a 26-point haul which included a trio of three-pointers, while also doing the hard work on the glass by coming up with eight rebounds. He also bagged two steals to secure his debut slot in our line-up.
Leslee Smith (Bristol Flyers) It was a brilliant weekend for Bristol and the Flyers' forward was instrumental in the south-west franchise completing a win-double. Smith racked up an excellent double-double at Cheshire Phoenix after he landed 15 points and also garnered the same number of rebounds. He shot 66% from the field and was a factor on defence too, as he swatted two shots.
Off the bench - Jermaine Sanders (Leeds Force), Rashad Hassan (London Lions), Pierre Hampton (Leicester Riders), Cory Dixon (Plymouth Raiders), Earl Brown (Cheshire Phoenix), Mike Vigor (Bristol Flyers), Scott Martin (Esh Group Eagles Newcastle)

It's our penultimate line-up of 2016-17 and while a trio took their last opportunity to shine as their respective seasons came to an end, two of our starters will be hoping to re-appear as they head into the Play-Offs!
Mike DiNunno (Cheshire Phoenix) As the curtain fell on an eventful season at Phoenix, the playmaker signed off his participation in spectacular style with a typically influential contribution. Di Nunno lit it up at Cheshire Oaks Arena against Leeds Force by harvesting a massive 36 points in just 22 minutes, after sinking a sizzling eight scores from beyond the three-point line. He also had three rebounds, three assists and not a single turnover during his time on court.
Callum Jones (193-G-85, college: Pace) (Manchester Giants) They may have finished propping up the table, but there was at least a smile of sorts heading into the summer for Giants as they ended their participation with an exciting home win against Plymouth Raiders. That was largely down to a magnificent effort from Jones, as he led his team to victory with a quite brilliant line. The guard finished with a majestic double-double of 26 points and 16 rebounds, while adding seven assists for good measure.
Earl Brown (Cheshire Phoenix) Finishing the season with a flourish and arguably the most consistent performer throughout a campaign of changes for Phoenix, Brown was in scintillating form against Leeds. While his team-mate DiNunno excelled in the backcourt, the forward scythed down Force by registering a huge double-double. He did the business in the paint with an astonishing 84% from the field for 28 points and also added 14 boards and five steals.
Leslee Smith (Bristol Flyers) Despite their worrying start to the season, Flyers find themselves in the Play-Offs after a weekend win double which catapulted them into seventh place. It was imperative Flyers got off to a positive start in their double-header and Smith brought the noise in a big way against Manchester. He was sensational and very much the difference-maker in a hard-fought victory against Giants with a monumental 19-point and 21-rebound double-double to delight the locals.
Tony Wroblicky (DBL Sharks Sheffield) The Sharks are now looking to defend the BBL Play-Off title they famously won at The 02 in London last May and if they manage to do it, you can expect Wroblicky to have a big hand in it. He was on fire for Sharks as they ended Worcester's record winning streak by beating them on the road and in front of the BBC Sport cameras. He weighed in with an outstanding double-double of 25 points and 13 rebounds, also not spilling the ball once in 30 minutes on the hardwood.
Off the Bench - Rashad Hassan (London Lions), Kieron Achara (Glasgow Rocks), Jermaine Sanders (Leeds Force), Rahmon Fletcher (Esh Group Eagles Newcastle), Hameed Ali (Bristol Flyers), Chaz Rollins (Surrey Scorchers), Rob Marsden (Leeds Force).
