MSBL Player of the Week - Rnd 2
THE week two Men’s SBL Player of the Week has been awarded to Jalen Billups of the Lapa Brazilian Restaurant Cockburn Cougars.
Friday night saw the Cougars notch up their first win of the 2017 season on the back of an outstanding performance by import Jalen Billups.
The 6' 6", 240 lbs, Cockburn Cougars big man was unstoppable against the Tigers at Willetton Basketball Stadium on Friday night, recording a monster 39 points and 15 rebounds, guiding the visiting side to a hard earned 89-81 victory.
Last year’s SBL Champions look rejuvenated and energised under new rookie coach Adam Nener and with recruit Billups filling the void of last year’s All-Star Marcus Goode, there is no reason they can’t challenge again this season.
