Nick Mui (AOD) G | 5-11 | 175 lbs Week 4 Stats PPG: 25.0 APG: 2.0 SPG: 3.0
Nick "the Quick" they used to call him, that hasn't changed. What AOD has done is instantly switch their identity by adding the league's fastest player. But, it's not just speed, it's his fearless ability to finish in the paint. He did work vs. FAS. Runner-Up: Nick Watson (FAS) 22 pts, 8 reb, 3 blk
Alex Cho (NYF) G | 5-9 | 155 lbs Week 4 Stats PPG: 33.0 RPG: 3.0 APG: 1.0
The kid is on fire. In two wins before this game, Cho put up a league-high 19.5 ppg, but his career best 33 pts put him on yet another level, despite an L in the standings this week. We have never seen him play like this but we expect even more.
Runner-Up: Alex Stewart (QIK) 16 pts, 7 reb, 2 stl
The Sam Lo Award for Hustlers
Aaron Fisher (AOD) 12 rebs
Fisher has come on as a rebounder of late and his work around the paint is polished and effective. If only he could get a few more layups to fall.
Runner-Up: Bryant Picone (NYF) 10 rebs, 2 blks
Defensive Player of the Week
Alex Stewart (QIK) 7 rebs, 2 stl, 2 blk

The High-5 Club Steven Chen (NYF) 1-3-5-2-1 James Li (CRB) 13-8-2-1-1 Alex Stewart (QIK) 16-7-2-2-2 Nick Watson (FAS) 22-8-3-2-3 Jon Yevin (FAS) 9-3-1-1-2

Runner-Up: Sam Jenkins (HYP) 22 pts, 3 stls
The "John Starks" Award J. Giacobbe (NYF) | 2-13 FGs (.154)
Oddly enough, Giaccobe made his first and last shots, missing 11 FGAs in-between, but his 3FG late in the 4th helped push his team into OT.
Dishonorable Mention: Sam Jenkins (HYP) 3-13 FGs
The "Chris Dudley" Award NY Crossbea. (CRB) | 1-7 FTs (.143)
The Crossbearers made only 1 FT on just 7 attempts. But, even if they made them all, it might not have made a difference.
Dishonorable Mention: Ezra Hoover (QIK) 3-7 FTs

Beasts steal one from Fury, red-hot Cho
MLK HS, NYC -- This wasn't a very pretty game to watch for 3 qtrs but by the end of the 4th, it had lived up to its billing.Neither team looked particularly sharp on offense through 3. Points were scrambled together through TOs or defensive miscues.Only NYF (G) Alex Cho looked believable on offense, which should be less and less of a surprise as the veteran guard has been hot all month and has shown no signs of slowing down. His 10 pts carried NYF in an uninspiring 19-19 1st half.
In the 3rd, Cho dropped 8 more and NYF took control of the game as HYP mustered only 5 pts in the quarter. Even former All-FBNYC (C) George Chan, in his first game of the season(more...)
ANALYSIS: This arguably should have been the match-up in the Chip last season. But, both teams have made significant changes in their rosters, NYF getting back (G) Joe Kim after losing (G) Rommel Dolar and adding rookie (F) Will Cheung. HYP adding (F) Dave Liu and (F) Amin Gillespie from SWA and rookie marksman (G) Sam Jenkins. But, reigning Defensive MVP (C) Bryant Picone is still the biggest man on the floor and HYP has limited low-post scoring options, which means they'll have to get out in transition and make jump shots to win.
X-FACTOR: Cheung in his one game of action has given NYF another dimension, a versatile player with near-big man size. He hasn't found the scoring touch yet but he's already strong on the offensive boards and on D. HYP (F) Mamadou Hanne has kept HYP in every game they have played with D, all-around play and just flat out hustle. -- Jeff Van Ghandi
(G) Alex Cho
(G) Leon Chu
Cho is on fire right now, the hottest guard in the league so Chu will have is hands full. If anyone is an able defender, he's it.
(G) Joe Kim
(G) Ian Yu
The MVPs of the last 2 seasons, that should say it all. Kim is the more polished all around player but Yu has nearly unmatched speed.
(F) Will Cheung
(G) Sam Jenkins
Cheung is still figuring out his place but he is versatile and is an impact without the ball. Jenkins might be the league's best shooter.
(F) Rich Chang
(F) Amin Gillespie
Chang is every good center's best sidekick right now. Gillespie is one the league's most powerful players and strongest defenders.
(C) Bryant Picone
(C) Howard Chu
Picone is a shutdown paint, like last season. Chu has struggled with the size in the BLUE but HYP needs his touch around the rim.
The NYF bench has a former Def MVP, a legit scorer and a rookie big. HYP has some solid all-around players who could just as easily start, like (F) Mamadou Hanne.
