It took a lot of weeks: NBL PotW


IT'S taken a lot of years, months and weeks for Basketball On The Internet's Round 9 NBL Player of the Week to snare this coveted accolade.

Oh sure, it could have gone last night to Melbourne United's Chris Goulding or to Casper Ware for his work at both ends in turning Bryce Cotton back to mere mortal.

And it could have landed in the lap of Adelaide's Nathan Sobey, who was inspirational in the 36ers' win over Brisbane, though maybe not as game-breaking as teammate Anthony Drmic in that fateful final stanza.

Kevin Lisch put up his hand with two solid games in Sydney's road wins over Perth and Illawarra.

But in the end, it was easy enough. Having left Cairns Taipans for New Zealand Breakers, Jarrad Weeks turned in a match-winning performance, seizing his opportunity while Corey Webster struggles to find his best.

Weeks came off the bench to play a whisker under 29 minutes for a team-leading 17 points including four 3-pointers. He also had four defensive rebounds and four assists.

A lot of his hustle, hard work and relentless commitment goes unnoticed or overlooked, except by coaches.

For good measure, the 185cm dynamo also blocked two Taipans' shots to just nudge teammate Shawn Long (16 points, 13 rebounds, four blocks) off the pedestal, earning B.O.T.I. Player of the Week(s) honours!
