The week thirteen “Kickz101 Perth” Men’s SBL Player of the Week has been awarded to Lee Roberts of the Perth Redbacks.

Perth look to be a serious contender this season after a huge performance on the weekend by the recently signed star import Lee Roberts.

The Redbacks travelled down the Kwinana freeway on Friday night to take on the star studded line-up of the Mandurah Magic who possess one of the strongest offensive line-ups in the league.

As anticipated the game was a high scoring affair with Perth’s Lee Roberts and Stanley Okoye combining for 71 points while Mandurah’s stars Hafford, Mullenax, Maddalena and Smith combined for 94 points.

Roberts finished with a game high 36 points to go with 15 rebounds, 3 steals and 2 blocks and a huge slam dunk to entertain the crowd.

With Roberts and Okoye firing and 2012 SBL all-star point guard Joel Wagner to return to the line-up, the Redbacks have assembled a formidable line-up which could see them in their first grand final since 1999.
