SBL Week 7 MVP: Shawn Hawkins


KKL import Shawn Hawkins was named SBL Week 7 MVP after a brilliant week during which he averaged an astonishing 45.7 points and 14.3 rebounds in three games.

Hawkins scored 137 points in three nights, including 43 points in the game vs. Taiwan Beer, 31 points against Taiwan Mobile and a SBL single game record 63 points against Yulon.

The American forward, who join KKL in mid season, said he would trade the scoring record for more wins. KKL head coach Lo Tien-ching said he gave Hawkins the green lights to showcase his offensive skills on the court since the team has been plagued by injuries this season.

Despite Hawkins' awesome performance, KKL ranked last in the seven-team league as of Saturday.
