Ben Madgen wins Round Four POTW
Took the Kings to a 2-0 road trip which is pretty impressive. Great start to the season for him.
The 2011 NBL Rookie of the Year winner started his team's 'Sunshine Swing’ to Far North Queensland with a 23-point, eight-rebound and five-assist effort in Sydney’s 92-87 win over Townsville on Friday night.Sole runner-up this week (yes, retain jaw from floor) was Adris Deleon for his 23/3/7 game that beat the 36ers in Adelaide.
The 193cm guard then scored 22 points as the Kings came from behind to register a victory over the Cairns Taipans at the Cairns Convention Centre on Sunday, 71-69. Madgen had 11 points in the final period alone, including making a crucial three-pointer in the final minute to help kick-start the Kings’ remarkable comeback.
Deleon tore the Adelaide defence to shreds as he either scored or set-up a teammate on virtually every play.And here are the honourable mentions:
Other leading contenders for Player of the Week in Round Four included Cedric Jackson (New Zealand), Thomas Abercrombie (New Zealand), Seth Scott (Melbourne), Cameron Tragardh (Cairns), Anthony Petrie (Adelaide), Gary Ervin (Townsville), Ben Allen (Townsville), Lance Hurdle (Wollongong), Corin Henry (Sydney) and Ian Crosswhite (Sydney).
