MVP | Power Rankings Round Three


1: Jeremy Smith (WER) (+1)

Jeremih or Smitty (however you like it) takes top spot in the Power Rankings after just three rounds as he and his Devils are absolutely crushing it. Another career night for Smith saw him go for 43 points, 16 rebounds, seven assists and two steals as Werribee remain undefeated. 

2: Chris Kaba (KNOX) (-1)

Kaba drops one despite not really doing much wrong. 24 points, eight rebounds and seven assists in a game is something that you could really get used to as a Raiders fan. That was his line in game one from the weekend. Kaba struggled to really get going thanks to foul trouble against DV finishing with eight points and eight boards. 

3: Dillon Stith (MCK) (-)

Stith has become the man for McKinnon, and, despite the team's early struggles he has continued to produce points and keep the scoreboard ticking. Another 28 and 10 game will keep his stocks high, but will it put wins in the win column?

4: Ben Waldren (ELT) (New)

Waldren re-enters the rankings after an excellent performance which nearly saw his 'Cats get across the line against Ringwood. A young star that's ready to flourish and really make Big V his breeding ground had 34 points to boot on the weekend. 

5: Brandon Polk (CAS) (New)

Polk had been stalking this list for the opening fortnight and now finally makes a fresh showing. Near unstoppable in the low block, Polky went to work on the weekend with back-to-back 27+ point games, which included 20 rebounds combined. 

On the cusp: Jacob Gibson (RING), Adam Thoseby (KNOX), Cam Baker (CB), Ivan Platenik (MCK), Michael McCahey (RING)


1: Rebecca Cole (ELT) (-)

Coley didn't quite reach 50 this week, however her impact on Eltham's contest was sure felt. The 'Cats dropped their first game of the year in a nail biter to Ringwood, however 24 points, nine rebounds, six dimes and three steals continues to be MVP kind of numbers

2: Courtney Duever (SUN) (-)

Sunbury kept their winning streak alive as they take that to 27, however Courtney Duever didn't have to make too much of an impact in their latest outing to get them over the line. 23 points and nine rebounds isn't a bad stat line, however she was hindered by eight turnovers and only just keeps her spot at no.2!

3: Tori Jarosz (RING) (-)

The double double machine was back at it again, with 25 points and 10 rebounds enough for her Hawks to creep past Eltham at home. Jarosz is a great pick up for the Hawks after a shaky off-season. 

4: Brittany Carter (SP) (-)

Despite the Gummy Sharks not winning many games to start the year, Carter hasn't skipped a beat. 16 points, seven rebounds and four steals keeps her place at number four on the list. 

5: Rebecca Ott (KNOX) (New)

Ott's the newest member of the power rankings on the women's side of things thanks to her consistent play for the Raiders. As Knox continue to put runs on the board, Ott has always been a big part of coach Robbie Baldwin's plans, as she pulled off 19 points/7 rebounds followed up by 18 points/7 rebounds/2 steals.

On the cusp: Kasey Burton (DV), Ariel Thomas (MCK), Te’Rea Cunnigan (KNOX), Morgan Pullins (MCK), Orla O’Reilly (SUN)
