MSBL Player of the Week: Jalen Billups

THE Round Eleven Men’s SBL Player of the Week has been awarded to Jalen Billups of the Joondalup Wolves.

The POTW for Billups has been some time coming, and is a just reward for his consistent and dominant high level of play.

Friday night, the league-leading Joondalup Wolves were away against the Perry Lakes Hawks team still finding their feet. Billups was able to outplay both Jacob Holmen and Brian Carlwell on his way to a game and season high 32 points, to go with his 9 rebounds in 27 minutes.  Shooting 13-21 (61%) on the night, Billups converted several high-percentage shots in reasonably low minutes, testament to the Wolves depth as they won 95-67.

In a quieter performance, Billups posted 19 points, 5 rebounds and a pair of steals as the Wolves added yet another win to their 9-game streak, defeating the Magic 107-75. Billups again shot the ball well, 7-14 from the field in just 29 minutes.

Billups has now recorded 8 games with over 24 points along with 5 double-doubles, all while averaging a relatively low 27 minute per game. The Wolves (14-1) host the Stirling Senators in Rivalry Round Saturday 2 June, carrying on their Battle of Joondalup theme.
