MSBL Player of the Week - Rnd 5
THE Week Five Men’s SBL Player of the Week has been awarded to Jalen Billups of the Lapa Brazilian Cockburn Cougars.
Billups receives his second player of the week nod for the season with his first coming in Week Two against the Tigers after a 39 point and 15 rebound effort.
The Cougars centre recorded his second 30+ point double-double on Thursday night with 32 points and 12 boards to go with 3 blocks, guiding his team over the Mandurah Magic 100-85, while holding Magic star Taylor Mullenax to just 3 rebounds for the entire game.
Billups is currently averaging 26.7ppg and 10.5rpg through 2017 keeping the Cougars in the top 8 after facing four of the top five teams in the league so far.
The reigning SBL champions are now gearing up for double-header, away against the Lightning on Saturday before hosting the Flames in an ANZAC day special.
