Pure Youth point guard Hong Chih-shan was named SBL Week 6 MVP Tuesday, winning the weekly award for the first time this season.
Hong, a point guard known for his consistency and clutch shooting, won the media poll mainly because of his 31-point, 7-assists outburst in the 89-69 win over KKL Sunday. He averaged 15.6 points and 3.6 assists in the week. However, his season averages of 8.6 points and 2.5 assists were not particularly outstanding.
Hong had 17 points in the media poll, edging out teammate Rashad Jennings, who had 12 points and Emmanuel Jones, who received 11.
