Dave Wong (SKY) G | 5-10 | 155 lbs Week 5 Stats PPG: 33.0 RPG: 3.0 SPG: 3.0
The veteran (G) is turning back the clock with every game that passes. Do your research, the man is relentless at attacking the rim in transition. You must get back on defense or he will bury you. Two SKY players are leading the league in scoring.
Runner-Up: Karma Lama (TBL) 18 pts, 6 ast, 3 stl
Alex Shu (THU) G/F | 5-11 | 165 lbs Week 5 Stats PPG: 29.0 RPG: 5.0 SPG: 3.0
The veteran Shu has been red hot lately and in this game, he was outright unstoppable. Able to throw up shots with just a sliver of space, everything was dropping for the former MVP. If he shoots like this all season, Thunder has it in the bag.
Runner-Up: Tim Small (DOR) 16 pts, 3 reb, 2 stl
The Sam Lo Award for Hustlers

David Weiss (DOR) 6 reb, 4 stl

The "John Starks" Award
S.Saperstein (DOR) | 2-11 FG (.182)
We're betting Sap would trade poor shooting for wins every time. Even if his dangerous range wasn't there, he was key in the W bystretching the D.
Dishonorable Mention: Jason Chin (IVC) 2-10 FGs
The "Chris Dudley" Award
Jiang Yu (IVC)| 1-6 FTs (.167)
Well, look who's back. The Caps are struggling right now and every little bit counts. They lost this one by 2 pts in overtime. Rough.

NEW YORK, NY -- So far we have one undefeated team and two 3-1 teams but no truly dominant teams have risen above the rest. Each win has been hard fought and more often than not, its been the teams with veteran experience that have come out on top.
Still, the newer teams have plenty of rising talent and it might not be long before they catch up. Everyone makes the playoffs this season and, if the league's history of upsets holds up, it might be perfect timing. -- The Jet
2K12 FALL REC D-I Power Rankings
NYC Skyline doesn't always look dominant but they use every bit of their veteran-laden roster to squeeze out wins. They have the league's leading scorer in sharpshooter (G) Chris Kwan and the 6th (G) Dave Wong.
Same goes with the Thunder, they haven't exactly dominated games but they use veteran experience to pull wins. (G) Leuis Ng is quietly building another dark horse MVP run. This team is in for the long haul.
The theme continues. Not only have the Panthers not dominated, they don't even look good on paper. But somehow, (G) David Chu and (F) John McConnell have found a way. They've become franchise players now.
The Goat Herders have the league's most formidable front-line and solid options at the guard. New add (C) Chris Kasimis has dominated the paint but the benefits of their style of play will show up in the playoffs.
Old Dirty Bastard is another veteran team but they've taken some time to get on track. They have a roster full aging All-Stars but time will tell if their best seasons haven't past them by.
Scorer (G) James Park has struggled in their last couple of games but as soon as (G) Jason Chin returns to the line-up, iVentureCap should be back on track. This is the Caps m.o. anyway, make the playoffs, make a run.
The league's newest and youngest team has improved with every game and if they can figure out to close out 4th qtrs, they'll be in for a surprise run in the post-season. (C) Ngawang Tsetan is a defensive stopper.
Doris is better than their record with solid adds (F) Steve Saperstein, (C) Jordan Calhoun, and now (G) David Weiss. But they have also struggled to finish. Luckily, they'll get their shot in the post-season.
