Tight battle for Hunt medal

Posted on: Friday, 8 September 2017 at 8:45:36 AM

S&K Electrical Geraldton Buccaneers coach Ray Evans said it would come down to players’ performances in the final games to determine this year’s Dan Hunt Medal winner.

 

Players, supporters and coaching staff will celebrate individual achievements at tomorrow night’s SBL season wrap-up.

 

Evans said there were only a few points between players for the Dan Hunt Medal vote count.

 

“It will be a pretty close vote. You’ve obviously got the likes of Mo Barrow, Dwayne Benjamin and Jackson Hussey looking good after their season,” he said.

 

“There aren’t too many votes between (them) so it will come down to the final games to decide. “But I won’t be giving much away.”

 

On the night, the D-League will announce their best player and runner-up best player awards.

 

There will also be awards for best players in certain categories including best shooter, most rebounds and most assists.

 

During the season, captain Mathew Wundenberg shot at a 63 per cent average for field goals closely, followed by Dwayne Benjamin on 51 per cent, Mo Barrow on 47 per cent and Jackson Hussey on 45 per cent.

 

Wundenberg averaged eight rebounds a game, followed by Benjamin with seven a game, Barrow with six and Hussey averaging five a game.

 

Looking forward to next season, Evans said the coaching staff were still working on their post-season review.

 

“At the moment we’re not looking at making too many changes but then again we didn’t make the grand final so there will need to be some adjustments for next season,” Evans said.

 

Players have enjoyed a couple of weeks off and team selections for the 2018 season will happen over the next month.
