Lisch wins NBL Player of the Week Round 8

Who's your pick?

Anyone likely to challenge Madgen for the OT road win and highest score of the round?

Will the NBL put Flynn in the honourable mentions, or runners-up list?

Yeah Madgen pretty comfortably.

If Madgen doesn't win it there is something wrong. His team had an away win and he scored 29 points which was almost double what any of his team mates scored (Corin Henry scored 15) and 9 better than the next highest scorer of the weekend which was Shawn Redhage who scored 20 in Perth's win over NZ.

Unless Ben Madgen slows down (he probably will but time will tell) I think he's looking a good bet for this season's MVP, regardless of where the Kings finish at seasons end.

Jackson has been better to this point.

It certainly seems a bit like the Madgen & Deleon show (with cameos from Jackson) this season so far...

I'm obviously very biased when it comes to Madgen, and I think he played a great game... He had to sit down with 3 fouls and still put up the highest score and the best efficiency rating of the round, all this sitting down for 9mins over the 2nd & 3rd quarters. He could score at will but didn't force it (most of the time) and was just controlled in everything he did.

Deleon had yet another great round and both teams would have been buggered without them, so it could be either one...

Andrew Price tweeted last night the PER for the season to date. Had Madgen leading from Deleon, Jackson, Ballinger I think it was, and Walker.

Lisch is it:

Perth Wildcats import guard Kevin Lisch has been named the National Basketball League's Player of the Week for Round Eight of the iiNet NBL Championship after leading his side to a pair of wins.

Lisch started the round with an 18-point, six-rebound effort as the Wildcats thrilled the big crowd of 11,086 last Thursday night at Perth Arena when the 'Cats romped to an 89-64 victory over the New Zealand Breakers in a Grand Final rematch.

The American then backed up with 15 points, two rebounds, two steals and one block as Perth ensured the Townsville Crocodiles stayed winless with a 68-63 win at ‘The Swamp’ in Townsville on Saturday night.

Lisch’s efforts helped the Wildcats improve to 5-3 for the season as Perth snapped a three-game losing streak.

Sydney Kings guard Ben Madgen went close to becoming the first player this season to repeat as Player of the Week before being beaten out for the Round Eight honours by Lisch.

Madgen, the Round 4 weekly award winner, had 29 points and four rebounds as the Kings defeated the Cairns Taipans in Cairns, 83-76.

Also a serious contender for the Round 8 award was another previous weekly award winner in Wollongong Hawks star guard Adris ‘2Hard2Guard’ Deleon.

The Round 5 Player of the Week had 18 points, five rebounds, five assists and two steals as the Hawks soared to the top of the ladder with a 74-66 road victory against the Melbourne Tigers.

Renowned as a clutch performer, Deleon took over the game yet again in the final period and drove the Hawks to a win despite trailing at the last change.

Other leading contenders for Player of the Week in Round Eight included Shawn Redhage (Perth), Jonny Flynn (Melbourne), Glen Saville (Wollongong), Gary Ervin (Townsville), Jacob Holmes (Townsville), Cedric Jackson (New Zealand), Jamar Wilson (Cairns) and Darnell Lazare (Sydney).

Lisch needed and entire extra game to net 4 more points than Madgen and beat him for POTW, yep that makes sense.

Deleon outshines an NBA #6 pick in a come from behind win.

Lisch was very good for us in the 2 wins, and playing 2 good games in a round is a more impressive feat than playing 1 good game, but this is not a good decision IMO.

What a surprise, the NBL getting something wrong again. Ludicrous that Madgen didn't get the award. National Bush League strikes again.

WRONG, Madgen or Deleon should have won. Lisch is a douch.

Haha "Leash". From what I've seen, the Crocs have the NBL's worst NBL TV commentators too.

If you're asking about "Leash", the Crocs NBL.TV commentators (or at least one of them) was quite keen on pronouncing "Lisch" as "Leash" for the entire game.

Leash wasn't even the best performer on his team for one of the games..

Madgen should have won this week, would have also accepted Deleon

Think the NBL just trying to share it around between players and clubs at this point, but in my opinion, Madgen should have won it 3 times now..........Politics and poor form by the NBL

"Lisch edged out Sydney guard Ben Madgen and Wollongong's Adris Deleon for the weekly honour."I was actually very surprised. A lot of other players played pretty good but I'll take it," Lisch said."
