Round 4 in the IINet NBL championship saw some big inputs from a number of players across the round. But this week the weekly honour goes to Adris "2Hard2Guard" Deleon for his 26 point capitulation of the Perth wildcats in only 21 minutes of court time. The Wollongong Hawks remain the only undefeated team in the league this season after defeating the Perth wildcats 100-68. This was a top of the table clash both teams going into the game undefeated but the Hawks were to good for the slower Wildcats. The First quarter saw the hawks break out to a 24 point lead and never looked back from there. Deleon coming off the bench in every quarter looked like he had something to prove and increased his performance from his last weeks 23 points to take out the player of the week.
Ben Madgen was unlucky to not win back to back player of the weeks averaging 25 points, 3 rebounds and 3.5 assists across the two games the Kings lost over the weekend. Cedric Jackson is another runner up in their win over the Kings with 22 points, seven rebounds, seven assists and 4 steals.
But Deleon was all class in his 26 points shooting at 70% from the field. At the end of nearly every shot clock Deleon had the ball to make the play and came through on most occasions. I predict the Deleon jersey will be the Highest bought Jersey for the Hawks this season. He penetrates to the rim at will off those high ball screens and makes the plays when the team needs him to. I missed out on a Gold Coast Blaze Deleon Jersey last season as they only made one extra which the owner kept.
I cant wait to see the match up of Adris Deleon vs Jonny Flynn in the coming weeks.
