MVP | Power Rankings Round 4


1: Jeremy Smith (WER) (-)

Smith had the week off this week as Werribee looks to sit pretty with just one in the loss column. The Easter break follows which sees the red-hot Devils have a fortnight off. 

2: Chris Kaba (KNOX) (-)

Kaba wasn't his usual self when the Raiders trekked to Broadmeadows before being dealt a loss. With the team missing Matt Hodgson through injury as well, Kaba's 20 points and eight rebounds was arguably a quiet game for the star. 

3: Dillon Stith (MCK) (-)

Stith propelled McKinnon up the SCM ladder, however not enough individually to see him climb in the Power Rankings. 21 points and nine rebounds in a four-point win when sneaking past Diamond Valley, was backed up with an important 25 points, seven boards and three steals as the team knocked off the then undefeated Hawks. 

4: Ben Waldren (ELT) (-)

Waldren has something about him. He seems to seamlessly ease his way to 15+ points and anything up from there is when he has to work a little harder. 25 points and three steals in Eltham's big win over Whittlesea doesn't hurt his stocks. 

5: Michael McCahey (RING) (New)

Despite not registering a win on the weekend, and in fact, registering his first loss in a Hawks uniform - McCahey enters the rankings for the first time off the back of 25 points and five rebounds. This is after a string of solid performances tipping out Brandon Polk. 


On the cusp: Ivan Platenik (MCK), Brandon Polk (CAS), Jacob Gibson (RING), Adam Thoseby (KNOX), Cam Baker (CB)


1: Rebecca Cole (ELT) (-)

14 assists which is probably close to a franchise record, Cole didn't need to put up the scoring numbers she is so accustomed to. Nine points, seven rebounds and 14 dimes was the line Coley finished with when the 'Cats eased past Warrandyte.

2: Courtney Duever (SUN) (-)

The Jets chalked up win number 28 in a row when defeating Waverley, Duever registering another double double with 12 points, 12 rebounds and five steals. They aren't huge numbers which we are used to, however they're all important to the team success.

3: Tori Jarosz (RING) (-)

Ringwood kept winning, and so did Tori! The double double machine lives on, as Jarosz finished with 21 points, 13 rebounds and two blocks. That makes it five from five.

4: Rebecca Ott (KNOX (+1)

Bec Ott moves up a spot as her Raiders continue their winning ways behind her. 14 points, 10 rebounds, three steals and two blocks shows once again that she can do it at both ends of the floor. If she keeps that up, the Raiders will be winning more games than most.

5: Ariel Thomas (MCK) (New)

Thomas finds her way into the rankings for the first time this season. The athletic point guard had to wait her turn as injury derailed the beginning of the season, however has come back fit and firing. One assist shy of a triple double this past weekend with 18 points, 13 rebounds and nine assists ain't bad for a PG!


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