The smaller Showcase just had no answer for the versatile (F). He took them inside, he took them outside. It didn't matter, he was knocking down shots from every spot on the floor, carrying his Boomtown team to their first franchise win.
Hulse was smooth as silk in the season opener, scoring in what seemed to be an endless array of moves with varying degree of difficulty. Every time FBN needed a big bucket, he got it for them. He finished with a big 20-and-10 line.

The Sam Lo Award for Hustlers
Pete Gonzalez (70S) 15 reb, 2 stl
One thing you can say for Gonzalez is that he goes hard. This is the best game we've seen him play on both sides of the ball. Hoping for more.
Runner-Up: Will Haile (FBN) 11 reb, 2 stl, 1 blk
Wat Misaka Defensive Player of the Week
K. Owusu-Kesse (BBR) 9 reb, 2 blk
Add in two steals, too, but Owusu had the week's two most impressive blocks against much taller players. Don't sleep on the D.
Runner-Up: Jake Moreno (BOO) 10 reb, 3 stl, 3 blk

Spot Dessert Bar™ Rookie of the Week Justin Drucker (TFD) 16 pts, 8 reb
The rookie forward helped lead his team to an impressive opening win against one of the league's tougher defensive teams.
Runner-Up: Nate Jones (BOO) 18 pts, 5 ast, 3 stl
The "John Starks" Award
Enli Li (70S) | 5-22 FGs (.227)
The sharpshooter who looked pretty much unstoppable last season, hit a wall in the opener. Luckily, they still got the win.
Dishonorable Mention: Tom Nangle (DWC) 6-20 FGs
The "Chris Dudley" Award
P. Gonzalez (PUR) | 2-7 FTs (.286)
Probably the only thing that Gonzo did wrong in this game, it almost cost them. But it didn't, so no big deal, right? Enh, still not attractive.
Dishonorable Mention: Ji Wu (70S) 3-7 FTs
