Catching up on some Top 10 videos from previous weeks. Mr. Roboto Huang going experimental with this edit. Music is "Digital Kiss" from willgannon.bandcamp.com. Also, follow up track "I Thought I Saw Your Face Today" from She & Him.
Jason Wu (HYP) F | 6-0 | 185 Week 7 Stats PPG: 21.0 RPG: 14.0 BPG: 2.0
Wu is certainly capable of this kind of output on the regular and if he's back in form, the HYP are now going to make a serious run for that last playoff spot. With a full roster, this is still plenty of talent and they still have a chance. RU: Vineesh Manchanda (BBS) 19 pts, 17 reb
David Hsiung (OMW) G | 5-11 | 175 lbs Week 7 Stats PPG: 26.0 RPG: 5.0 APG: 3.0
Frankly, it's about time Hsiung got his name up in the lights. He's shown signs of this kind of output since the first time he stepped on the MLK floor. Now, with a solid core of teammates around him, Hsiung can focus on what he does best, score. Runner-Up: Declan O'Donnell (COF) 15 pts, 12 reb
The Sam Lo Award for Hustlers
V. Manchanda (BBS) 17 reb, 2 blk
The rookie has made things a whole lot easier for BBS. Manchanda lets them set up the press and he'll clean up the back end. Hmm... well, yea.
Runner-Up: R. Dutta (THC) 11 reb, 1 stl, 1 blk
Defensive Player of the Week
Alex Shu (THU) 11 reb, 7 stl
The former MVP has these spurts every now and then. He just racks up steals like he's picking berries. And, grabbing boards, too.
Runner-Up: Victor Chia (THC) 9 reb, 2 stl, 4 blk
The High-5 Club Victor Chia (THC) 8-9-1-2-4 Myong Choi (IVC) 14-10-3-1-1 Rondeep Dutta (THC) 6-11-4-1-1 Vineesh Manchanda (BBS) 19-17-1-2-2 Ben Williams (OMW) 8-8-7-1-1 Jiang Yu (IVC) 7-9-1-2-2
Discorama Rookie of the Week D. O'Donnell (COF) 15 pts, 12 reb
O'Donnell's recent surge is a major reason the Flunkies got their first W. His athleticism is rare in this division and he's putting it to good use.
Runner-Up: Fidel Frias (COF) 15 pts, 8 reb, 2 stl
The "John Starks" Award Mike Ha (THC) | 3-16 FGs (.188)
It's not often a team has a player who shoots this poorly and still wins but that's the kind of frenetic pace THC put on GEN. It didn't matter.
Dishonorable Mention: Ian Yu (HYP) 3-15 FGs
The "Chris Dudley" Award Sex Panthers (SXP) | 7-17 FTs (.412)
The Panthers have historically been a great FT shooting team, especially with (G) Ren Hsieh and (F) Chris Youn at the line. Not this time. Dishonorable Mention: D. O'Donnell (COF) 2-5 FTs

2K12 SPR Spot Dessert Bar Game of the Week - DMF vs BBS
DB Men on Fire(5-0) vs. Bearball State (5-1) | Saturday (4/21), 1:30pm @ MLK HS
Y. Yu 21.2 ppg 3.2 rpg 2.2 apg 0.6 spg 0.2 bpg
K. Miah 26.3 ppg 5.8 rpg 1.8 apg 2.2 spg 0.2 bpg
NEW YORK CITY -- Well, of course this is the game of the week. Was it ever really a question? The under-card isn't too shabby either with SXP's re-match with OMW, the last one nearly ended in fisticuffs. But, Men on Fire vs. Bearball State might just be the best game we see this season.
With a full roster, it just doesn't look like DMF is capable of losing. They are well-balanced with depth to the 10th man. Stand out (F) J.M. Grzan is a tireless automaton, (F) Jon Chen likewise, captain (F) Young Yu is a scoring machine, they knock off teams with factory-like precision.
But, if there is a team that can throw a wrench in DMF's assembly line, it's State. There's just no accounting for (G) Kash Miah and (G) Danny Chin's combined ability to get red-hot from the perimeter. It changes the game. And, with hyperactive (C) Vineesh Manchanda helping in the paint, now. Well, that's why this is the game of the week. -- Jeff Van Ghandi
DB Men on Fire
(G) Pete Song
(G) Felix Shen
Both Song and Shen specialize on defense and hustle but Song can get to the basket a little better where Shen is the better 3-pt shooter. BBS may run a press in this one.
(G) Mike Dougherty
(G) Kash Miah
Dougherty and his versatile D will likely shadow Miah all game. He's been effective before. Miah has had his struggles against Dougherty, but this is a whole new game.
(F) Young Yu
(G) Danny Chin
Yu is having one of his best seasons as a scorer and all-around. Despite a little rust, Chin is still a playmaker on both ends of the ball. He will impact this game.
(F) Jon Chen
(F) Mike Chin
Chen is the quiet assassin on this team. He just keeps coming after you, like a T-1000. Chin has been a solid young player for BBS and their secondary scorer thus far.
(F) J.M. Grzan
(C) V. Manchanda
Every season, we get another workhorse like a Grzan but this guy is impressive. It took 2 games but Manchanda is now looking like a perfect fit, athletic and solid on the boards.
BENCH (G) Jason Chien (G) Dennis Yang (G) Ethan Liebowitz (F) Hamilton Lee (F) Brian Shim
BENCH (G) Danny Han (F) Andre Liu
DMF's bench is deep and there is virtually no drop off when they get in the game. That's really what makes this team so difficult to beat. BBS has solid veteran players off the bench that know how to make plays, the B rating is due to a lack of depth.
This season ALL games will be played at "The King" MLK HS (122 Amsterdam Ave) unless otherwise noted.
