Will Artino of the Kuala Lumpur Dragons has been named the season’s first Player of the Week.
The 6’11” big man tallied a monster double-double of 25 points and 20 rebounds to lead the Dragons to a 1-point victory against the Taipei Fubon Braves. Artino was a major contributor at the defensive end as well as he recorded 3 blocks and 2 steals.
Will Artino played for the Formosa Dreamers last season and was a vital piece to the team’s run for the first-seed. The American import is expected to be the focal point for the Dragons this year.
Artino and the Dragons will return to action on November 28 as they take on Mono Vampire on the road.
