Well, this is without a doubt the best we've ever seen Tsevdos play. He is carrying this team in every sense as GOA's leading scorer and best one-on-one defender. Tsevdos is the front runner for league MVP for this 2nd half of the season.

Mike Palacios (SKY) F | 6-2 | 185 lbs Week9 Stats PPG: 21.0 RPG:6.0 SPG: 3.0
THU put on a stifling defensive zone scheme that troubled SKY for the first 1 1/2 quarters. But, Palacious provided the solution as he filled in the gaps, and torched THU for a career-high 21 pts on 7-10 FGs. SKY pulled out the win.
Runner-Up: Alex Shu (THU) 17 pts, 5 3FGs, 8 reb
The Sam Lo Award for Hustlers
Alex Tsay (PTP) 14 reb, 5 ast, 4 stl
You gotta give it up to Tsay. PTP has not quite played up to expectations this season, but Tsay has played his ass off in every game. Runner-Up: Al Chen (THU) 13 reb, 1 stl, 1 blk
Wat Misaka Defensive Player of the Week
Randye Rand (JJB) 7 reb, 5 stl, 3 blk Rand was all over the place in a must win for JJB. Had he played for more of the season, he would have been a fixture in this box.

Ember Room™ Rookie of the Week Chris Hendrix (GOA) 9 pts, 7 ast
Hendrix isn't a big time scorer, he's got teammate Tsevdos for that. But, he is GOA's best set up man and their most dazzling playmaker. R-Up: Tsetan Namgyal (TBL) 12 pts, 3 reb, 2 stl
The "John Starks" Award
Ji Wu(70S) | 5-20 FGs (.250)
It is important to note that the 70's got the win.But in a blowout, Wu had to make 3 of his last 5 shots just to hit 25% shooting.
Dishonorable Mention: Aaron Lim (SKY) 3-13 FGs
The "Chris Dudley" Award
Ji Wu (70S) | 6-12 FTs (.500)
To top it off, Wu struggled from the FT line as well, making just 6of 12 FTs. This looks like we're picking on him, but he's been solid this season.

Player of the Game Mike Palacios (SKY) 21 pts, 6 reb, 3 stl
Jack Ma (RBL) G | 5-9 | 155 lbs Week 8 Stats PPG: 19.0 RPG: 6.0 SPG: 1.0
The Rebels have been far from great this season, but Ma was very solid in just their first win of the season, scoring a game high 19 pts on .500 shooting. Oddly enough, the win actually gives them an outside chance of making the playoffs.
Rr-Up: Chris Kasimis (GOA) 19 pts, 4 reb, 2 ast
Mike Ha (THU) F | 6-0 | 185 lbs Week8 Stats PPG: 26.0 3PG:5.0 APG: 8.0
It shouldn't be any secret now, Ha has been playing at a much higher level in the 2nd half of the season. In this blowout win over a short-handed GOA, Ha was lights out, shooting 10-16 from the field and a crazy 5-5 from behind the arc.
