This is the kind of domination we're used to from Picone but the league has gotten bigger and more athletic over the past few seasons. In this win over SMT, however, Picone was the biggest player on the court and dominated as such.
Runner-Up: Rahmel Miller (PIF) 15 pts, 7 reb, 3 ast
Kash was lights out in FBK's win over BOI but that should be no surprise. Miah might be the hottest player in the APIA circuit in 2010. It remains to be seen if his cameo with the Fury turns into a permanent spot but he left a great reel.
Runner-Up: Kareem Merrick (BOI) 18 pts, 18 rebs
The Sam Lo Award for Hustlers
Kareem Merrick (BOI) 18 pts, 18 reb
Merrick might be the hottest player in the league right now with back to back double-doubles and this 18 reb effort vs. the Fury Black.
Runner-Up: Ezra Hoover (FBK) 14 rebs, 2 blks
Defensive Player of the Week
Bryant Picone (FGO) 21 rebs, 4 blks
The double-up is rare but can't go wrong with this pick, Picone just shut down the paint for SMT, they had to get everything from the perimeter.
Runner-Up: Andre Logan, Jr. (LMG) 12 rebs, 4 blks
The High-5 Club Wade Hazelton (FGO) 9-8-2-1-1 Ezra Hoover (FBK) 4-14-1-1-2 Antonio Hunter (PIF) 12-4-1-1-1 Daniel Lee (FGO) 9-3-3-1-1 Andre Logan, Jr. (LMC) 14-12-1-2-4 Varun Manocha (FBK) 12-3-1-2-1 Kareem Merrick (BOI) 18-18-5-1-2 Bryant Picone (FGO) 14-21-5-1-4 Eric Polite (BOI) 20-6-2-2-2 Will Smallwood (PIF) 12-6-2-1-1
Discorama Rookie of the Week Will Halie (SMT) 23 pts, 9 rebs, 3 blk
Halie quietly put up some very solid numbers in an all-around game. He didn't get much help, though, as SMT lost 58-50.
Runner-Up: Eric Polite (BOI) 20 pts, 6 rebs, 2 blks
The "John Starks" Award A. Hunter (PIF) | 3-14 FGs (.214)
Hunter has been solid at the point all season for PIF but he called his own number a lot in the win over LMG, he just didn't make so many.
BOI (G) elevates to bring his team within one on this fastbreak layup with less than a minute left to play. It wouldn't be enough.
Black outlasts Yea's in shootout
MLK HS, NYC -- With both teams carrying just five players for the Wednesday night late game in Chinatown, this one didn't figure to be a shoot-out. But, anytime you put gunners like FBK (F) Roger Redhead and (G)Kash Miah on the floor, it's certainly possible--even likely.Read more >>>
