SBL: Quincy Davis is given ‘Player of the Month’ honor

By Paul Huang  /  Contributing Reporter

Members of the Basketball Writers’ Association voted Quincy Davis the Player of the Month for last month for his outstanding play and exceptional contributions that helped Pure Youth Construction attain a 6-1 record.

The US center out of Tulane University, who played in Europe, China and South America prior to joining the Builders, posted some impressive all-around numbers, with 20.1 points, 14 rebounds, 1.9 blocked shots, two assists and 1.4 steals per game in the seven matches last month, making him the premier center in the league.

“It’s an honor to win [the Player of the Month award], we have some great players on our team, which makes playing basketball in Taiwan really fun,” Davis said.

“[Davis] really knows how to make the most of his strong suits while steadily improving on his weak points, which has been instrumental to our team,” a very pleased Pure Youth skipper Hsu Jin-tseh said.

Player of the Week

The Player of the Week was also announced earlier this week to honor very deserving Kinmen Kaoliang rookie Liu Cheng, who beat out Davis in the weekly voting for his solid play that helped the Distillers win two out of three last weekend.

The prodigy out of Mingdao University, who was the first player taken in the annual Amateur Draft, justified his top-pick status with three big games in which he averaged 19.3 points and 7.3 rebounds.

“It hasn’t been that smooth for me playing in the SBL, but I am working hard to make the necessary adjustments to fit in better on the team,” Liu said.
