Player-of-the-Week Nominations

Good morning! One feature that it became abundantly clear needs to be a thing is a player-of-the-week as designated by the GNAC Men’s Basketblog. Usually this’ll be based around a combination of double-doubles, full houses, or other qualities like that.

A full house is basically the opposite of Club Trillion; a player needs to get at least one of each: a rebound, assist, steal, block, and score points. Turnovers are not necessary, but are forgiven.

If you have someone that didn’t statistically stand out that you think was the heart of your team and should get the nomination instead: tweet at us, or leave a comment.

Nominations will be posted on Mondays, with the winner post occurring on Wednesdays.

This week:

UAF: Adam Griffin/Ruben Silvas/Almir Hadsizehovic –No one distinguishes between the three, but all played well.
UAA: Brian McGill –consistency.
SFU: Sango Niang –rebounds + points = wins.
WWU: Anye Turner –blocks.
SPU: Riley Stockton — incredible balance; did what it takes to make the guys around him better.
MSUB: Austin Hudson –double-double.
CWU: Gary Jacobs/Julian Vaughn/Jordan Russell — T/O issues plague two of them, but they’re still valuable.
NNU: Kevin Rima/Bouna N’Diaye –Kevin had a double-double, Bouna had a full house!
SMU: Trey Ingram –assists + full house!!
WOU: Andy Avgi –points + rebounding.

Great job to all of the guys! If there’s a twitter account we haven’t linked that you want linked, please do in fact say something. This blog is about bringing some much deserved attention to some straight up ballin’ guys that don’t usually get it.

It was a fantastic and crazy weekend. The post about Saturday’s games (which these nominations did take into account) should be up by the end of today.

    Glad to see that you corrected the UAF nominations… I guess you discovered that Nate Ball was Trinity’s forward, not UAFs… Thought that would have been kinda a sick joke. Ruben Silvas was the bright spot for UAF, but they got a long, steep hill to climb right now. Sounds like Brian McGill or Austin Hudson were bests around the league.

      Yeah, when I noticed it this morning I cringed. There was too much blue on that stat sheet and it doesn’t help that I mentally associate UAF with more of a cerulean blue than a dark blue. I also totally missed the significance of Joe Stroud’s performance. There are definitely going to be some growing pains, but things should be much better starting tomorrow.
