THE Round Six Men’s SBL Player of the Week has been awarded to Shawn Redhage of the Textile WA Perth Redbacks.
Perth Redbacks and ex-Wildcats star Shawn Redhage has put in two strong performances for his squad, helping them to third overall on the Men’s SBL ladder.
On Saturday, the Redbacks played host to the Goldfields Giants, where Redhage led all scorers with 29 points which included going 13/16 from the free-throw line. He also added 8 rebounds, an assist, a steal and a block, in an 83-69 win for the newly branded Perth Redbacks.
Redhage was able to provide another strong showing on ANZAC Wednesday, as the Redbacks defeated the Mandurah Magic 113-82. The Magic had no answer for Redhage, who put in 28 points, 6 assists, 2 rebounds and 2 steals in just 28 minutes. Impressively, Redhage shot 76%FG, 50%3PT and 100%FT – ending the weekend 20/23 from the line.
Redhage and the Redbacks (6-2) will now turn their attention to the Willetton Tigers (4-3) on Saturday night, a replay of their 2017 Semi-final series.
