Deleon wins Round 19 NBL POTW

Wollongong Hawks import Adris '2Hard 2Guard' Deleon put on a scoring master class, dropping 61 points in two games to take the NBL Player of the Week for Round 19 of the iiNet NBL Championship.

The Hawks guard was at his electrifying best, first posting 33 points (12-of-17FG) in the 92-84 road loss to New Zealand before another game-high 28 points (10-of-11FT) in the crushing 86-62 win over Townsville.

In one of the best scoring displays seen in the iiNet NBL Championship this season, the former Eastern Washington University star amassed 61 points on 57% shooting from the floor, helping the Hawks back into the top four.

Deleon’s teammate Oscar Foreman was lights out, posting 21 points (9-of-12FG) in the loss to the Breakers and 22 points (6-of-7 3FG) in the win over the Crocodiles.

Tigers’ star Jonny Flynn continued his stellar run of form since the turn of the year, posting 24 points, seven assists and six rebounds in the 83-79 home loss to the Perth Wildcats.

Breakers big Mika Vukona (24 points on 11-of-14FG) and Sydney Kings centre Ian Crosswhite (21 points on 8-of-12FG and 10 rebounds) were also in NBL Player of the Week contention.
Good choice. To score like that and at such a good clip is impressive. They got within a couple of baskets of the Breakers late in that game, even while playing an absolute rookie.
