Up to almost two months we would have to go back in time to be able to find the party that has earned Kai Edwards (TAU Castello) to be able to win the first award of his career in the category. Because day 13 could not be completed until Wednesday night when the virtual award of the Dutch center ended up becoming a mathematician.
In this way, the player from the Castellón team found the almost perfect prize for his performance in the Multiusos de Cáceres where his 33 rating points acted as the main concern of his rival. Although, on this occasion, his 15 points (3/5 TL and 6/7 TC), 13 rebounds, 3 assists, 1 block and 7 fouls received they were not quite enough when it came to being able to add positively against Cáceres P. Humanity (77-68).
He was discharged on December 9 after a few weeks away from the courts due to injury and, just 15 days later, center Kai Edwards was already shining on the floor for his TAU Castelló. A fundamental player for the team’s schemes and for an inside game from which he added the first MVP of his career in national territory. Because after passing through Palma and Castelló, where he had different appearances in the ideal quintet of the day, Kai had not yet been able to make his debut in an individual award, which, however, he could not accompany with a victory.
The ideal quintet of the day:
It has taken a few weeks to play all of its matches, but Matchday 13 is already full since a Wednesday night in which the last two pending matches were played. And it was precisely there where we have met a large part of the members of the ideal quintet with the good work of the point guard Devon Van Oostrum (Levitec Huesca) in the defeat of his team or with the dominant role between one and two of a Justin Pitts (HLA Alicante) who was very solid last night at Riazor. Thus, both players shaped a perimeter that was completed with the presence of a Devin Schmidt (Cáceres P. Humanity) that had surprised the MVP of the day in a match played on date.
Already in interior positions, the great work to the four of Arnau Parrado (CB Prat) in Valladolid in the triumph of his team earned him the award as one of the best interiors of a day that was completed with the presence of the MVP, a Kai Edwards (TAU Castelló) really solid in Caceres.
