Mika Vukona
A stand-out double-double' performance by New Zealand Breakers veteran Mika Vukona (198-F-82) has seen him capture the National Basketball League's Player of the Week award for Round Three of the iiNet NBL Championship.

Vukona recorded double-figures in two key statistical categories in his team's 73-71 home win over the Townsville Crocodiles on Friday. The Fijian-born star scored 15 points and amassed 15 rebounds, as well as adding three assists and three steals. He made 6-of-11 field goal attempts, shooting at an accurate 55%.

The 198cm athletic forward fired his team up early in the game with some strong words in a team time-out and then led by example, making two key defensive plays down the stretch to seal the narrow win.

Vukona took out the Round Three honours from Adelaide's Adam Gibson. The 2012 Olympian had a game-high 21 points as well as five rebounds, two assists and two steals as the 36ers defeated the Cairns Taipans 85-81 at the Adelaide Arena on Saturday.

Cairns Taipans import Jamar Wilson was also a strong candidate for the weekly honour after helping his team to a split of their road-double in Round Three.

Wilson had 22 points, four rebounds and four assists as the Snakes opened the round with an 88-68 win over Sydney on Friday. The lightning quick guard then backed up with 16 points, seven rebounds, two assists and two steals in the Taipans' 85-81 loss to Adelaide the next night.

Other leading contenders for Player of the Week in Round Three included Adris Deleon (Wollongong), Luke Schenscher (Adelaide), Kevin Lisch (Perth), Matt Knight (Perth), Gary Ervin (Townsville), Oscar Forman (Wollongong), Ben Madgen (Sydney), Seth Scott (Melbourne) and Kevin Braswell (Melbourne).
