Deleon wins NBL POTW for Round 5

The Hawks hosted the Wildcats at the WIN Entertainment Centre in Wollongong on Sunday with both teams entering the match with undefeated records, but Deleon's efforts ensured that it was the Hawks who remained perfect.

The American guard scored 26 points as well as adding two rebounds and one steal as the Hawks romped past the 'Cats to a 100-67 victory and improved to 5-0 for the season.

Deleon made 8-of-11 from the field (73%) including 3-of-5 three-pointers, and was a perfect 7-of-7 from the freethow stripe.
Runners up were Jamar Wilson (25/9/2 in a home win) and Cedric Jackson (22/7/7/4 also in a home win). Plus Ben Madgen for 25/3/3.5 across an 0-2 week.

Honourable mentions were:
Cameron Gliddon (Cairns), Adam Ballinger (Melbourne), Oscar Forman (Wollongong), Matthew Knight (Perth), Luke Schenscher (Adelaide), Alex Pledger (New Zealand), Stephen Weigh (Adelaide), Chris Goulding (Melbourne), Gary Ervin (Townsville) and Mika Vukona (New Zealand).
Easy choice this week - 26 points in 21 minutes against the top backcourt around. Would've added half the Hawks to the honourable mentions as guys like Martin and Davidson were very good also.
