Floriana Royce’s Derek Elston made it two in a row after being named the You Shop We Ship Division One Player of the Month for Novem-ber, the Malta Basket-ball Association (MBA) announced.

Elston, who con-tinued with his fine performances last month, also made it four consecutive times that a Floriana player had claimed this honour after the two titles from last season by Matt Glass.

Floriana started their league defence in November with two victories in the Na-tional League and also reached the MBA Shield final.

Elston was an inspirational figure behind the Greens’ results, scoring 124 points and being the best scorer for November in the championship, also nailing four three-pointers in the process.

The American player also had an average of 13.75 rebounds, 3.00 steals and 2.50 assists per game.

Elston was presented with his award by Martin Ferry on behalf of the sponsors.
