ROUND 6 SEABL MEN’S PLAYER OF THE WEEK

Eric Williams – Frankston Blues

In his first game for the 2015 season, Eric Williams has led Frankston to their first win of the 2015 season being named the Round 6 SEABL Men’s Player of the Week.

Williams was recently signed by the Blues to fill their second import spot, and returned to the league with a bang scoring 42 points – a 2015 league-high, in their five-point overtime victory against Kilsyth.

Williams shot the ball at 54 per cent from the field, while also draining four from long-range.

In 2010 and 2011, Williams was a member of the Nunawading Spectres before playing overseas. His return is timely for the Blues, who were winless prior to his arrival and also have added Matt Hodgson to the line-up returning from injury.

Special Mentions

– Blues teammate Brandon Polk was also a menace with 25 points and 18 rebounds in the same game while battling Kilsyth centre Tim Lang who scored 27 points and grabbed 12 boards.

– Hobart Chargers’ Kyle Hunt lifted when his side needed him in their win over Nunawading with 24 points, 17 rebounds and three blocks.

-Tony Lewis had a big weekend, with 26 points and 14 rebounds in their win against Canberra, followed by their win over BA Centre of Excellence with 31 points and 16 rebounds.

Aimie Clydesdale – Dandenong Rangers

32 points from Aimie Clydesdale in Dandenong’s easy win over Sandringham has seen her reward with the Round 6 SEABL Women’s Player of the Week honour.

Clydesdale was super efficient in her 32 points, only missing six shots for the game as she shot the ball at 68 per cent from the field. She also mustered three triples to go with four assists and three rebounds.

It has been a big 12 months for the 21-year-old, playing a major role in the Dandenong Rangers WNBL campaign over the summer, before being named in the Opals camp held in Gosford over April.

Clydesdale averages 17.6 points per game from her five contests this year, shooting the ball at over 51 per cent from the field. Her Rangers sit comfortably on top of the East with a 7-1 record.
