SBL MVP of the Month: Tseng Wen-ting


One day after being eliminated from the postseason, Yulon center Tseng Wen-ting won a consolation prize. He was named MVP of the Month for April and May by beating out Dacin forward Tien Lei 17-15.

Tseng averaged 16.6 points, 9.6 rebounds and 5.7 assists in nine games during the span. Such record from a big man should be more than enough to keep a coach happy. If not for some bad games, Tseng almost topped the league in assists in addition to leading the SBL in blocked shots (2.7 per game) once again.

Tien Lei finished just two points shy in the media voting while KKL forward Chen Ching-hwan was third with 12 points.
