Adnam and Parsons headline in the third week of the competition.


Kyle Adnam – Kilsyth Cobras

A monster game from Kilsyth Cobras guard Kyle Adnam has seen him announced as the Round 3 SEABL Men’s Player of the Week.

Adnam averaged 24.5 points, 4.5 rebounds and 5 assists over the weekend, but it was his efforts against the highly touted Ballarat Miners opposing Round 1 Player of the Week Roy Booker which stood out from the rest.

Adnam had 33 points, seven rebounds and seven assists in the Cobras 22-point win over the Miners, going 11 of 19 from the field and 10 of 11 from the charity stripe.

It has been a terrific start to the season for Adnam and the Cobras, leading the South Conference with a 4-1 record with Adnam top-five in the lead in scoring averaging 22.8 points per game at 53.4 per cent from the field.

2014 was Adnam’s first season in SEABL, stamping his authority immediately resulting in being named the Australian Youth Player of the Year at season’s end.
