Dusty Hannahs Named NBA G League Player of the Week
Memphis Hustle guard Dusty Hannahs has been named the NBA G League Player of the Week for games played between Monday, November 25 and Sunday, December 1. Hannahs is the second player in Hustle franchise history to receive the honor (Ivan Rabb; Dec. 10, 2018).
In two games last week, Hannahs led the team in scoring in wins over the previously undefeated Maine Red Claws and Oklahoma City Blue, spearheading an offensive attack that averaged 126.0 points per game. The Arkansas product averaged 30.0 points, 3.0 rebounds, 3.5 assists and 2.0 steals while shooting 60.6 percent from the field (20-33 FG), 63.6 percent from three-point range (14-22 3P) and a perfect 4-of-4 from the free throw line.
Hannahs was one of two players who, in multiple games, averaged at least 30.0 points, 3.0 rebounds and 3.5 assists and was the only player who also shot above 60 percent both overall and from long range. The third year pro also committed zero turnovers in 72 minutes of action.
For the season, Hannahs averages 21.3 points, 3.1 assists and 2.1 rebounds while shooting 50.0 percent from the field, 50.9 percent from beyond the arc and 81.3 percent from the free throw line. Additionally, Hannahs leads the league in offensive rating (min. six games played, 20 minutes per game) at 120.1 and ranks eighth in net rating under the same parameters.
