For the first time in its history, we have a repeat Baller of the Week! Juan Ferrales is back to #BOTW status after having a massive game in Norway over the weekend for the league-leading Kongsberg Miners. He was also named Baller of the Week in November 2016 but Ferrales had an even more impressive game this time around, scoring a career-high 40 points while dropping five dimes and adding three rebounds in his team's 98-82 victory of Gimle.
The fourth-year guard also went a scorching 6-of-7 from beyond the arc as he helped his team stretch their undefeated streak to ten games to start the season. Ferrales is averaging a career-high 23.9 poitns per game, good for fourth-highest in Norway's BLNO, but this scoring outburst for the hottest team in the country got our attention enough to give him Baller of the Week honors again in 2019!
Well, we did it. We made it through an entire off-season of hoops! (insert praise hands emoji here)
Though the NBA regular season officially kicked off last night, the international hoops season is nearly in full swing. Several countries started their domestic leagues in late September/early October, and now with the NBA starting we've got basketball going strong all around the world! And with that, it's time to get back to one of our favorite recurring features - Baller of the Week!
