The Cheaters’ big man is once again the Player of the Week after another dominant performance, this time against the Pandas. Unlike their first game with the Citi Team Blazers, though, Cheaters were tested by a Pandas squad that was motivated to bounce back after being defeated by Public Enemy in their season opener.
Sunday’s Breakfast Club game turned out to be a thriller, going to overtime after a back-and-forth regulation match that saw the teams trade the lead multiple times. In the end, Phelps (@datattedbeast) made all the difference, again racking up a double-double, this time with 26 points and 16 rebounds. He even contributed 4 assists, showing the importance of having a skilled big in the Drew and continuing his team’s annual tradition of having players win multiple Player of the Week honors in the early season.
