Madgen wins WNBL Player of the Week
Melbourne Boomers and Jayco Australian Opals star Tess Madgen produced two memorable performances to earn WNBL Player of the Week honours for Round Two.
The 23-year-old guard was at her free-scoring best, inspiring the Boomers to a 62-57 win over the Logan Thunder on Saturday afternoon on the back of a career-high 34 points.
With her team trailing by as many as 15 points early in the final period, Madgen inspired a remarkable comeback, scoring 18 points fourth-quarter points to secure the victory.
This was followed up less than 24 hours later in Townsville, with Madgen dropping a game-high 24 points and seven rebounds as Melbourne upset the Fire 67-63 on Sunday.
