Othyus Jeffers Performer of the Week In NBADL
How good has the Iowa Energy’s Othyus Jeffers been so far this season? How about the best in the D-League leading his team to a 3-1 start including a split of two games in Sioux Falls at the Sanford Pentagon.
Jeffers whose reputation includes NBA call-ups and Rookie of the Year honors in the NBADL, was honored with the Performer of the Week award. In total, Jeffers averaged 25.5 points, 12.8 rebounds and 4.3 assists during the games played November 22 through December 1. In Tulsa, Jeffers put together a 29 point 16 rebound night to help beat the 66ers 123-103. Against the Skyforce, the Saturday night performance included 12-15 shooting from the floor to go with his 29 points, 16 rebounds and 5 assists in a 108-98 loss.
This is Jeffers’ third Performer of the Week award in the D-League. He was honored in November of 2010 and again in January of 2011. Later in that 2011 season, Jeffers earned GATORADE call-ups to the San Antonio Spurs and the Phoenix Suns.
