Pure Youth Construction import Rashad Jones-Jennings, who averaged 23.6 points and 22.3 rebounds last week, was named SBL Week 3 MVP and became the first foreign player to win the weekly honor this season.
The American player received 38 points in the media poll to beat out Taiwan Beer import Emmanuel Jones, who had 15 points, for the award.
“Jennings has helped the team a lot on the defensive end and in the rebounding department, ” PY head coach Hsu Chin-tse said, adding that Jenning has been in better physical condition and had no problem to keep up with his quicker teammates.
The former NCAA Division I rebounding champion was quoted as saying that he believed that he would be playing a lot better after his injury is fully recovered.
