87ers Sean Kilpatrick named NBA D-League Player of the Week


The Sixers haven't won a game yet, but their D-League affiliate has won three and one of their players received honors for a tremendous week of performance for games from  the 23rd-29th of November. Sean Kilpatrick, in his second year with the 87ers, became the first member of the Sixers D-League affiliate to earn Player of the Week Honors.

NEW YORK, Nov. 30, 2015 – Delaware 87ers guard Sean Kilpatrick was today named NBA Development League Performer of the Week for games played Monday, Nov. 23 – Sunday, Nov. 29.  The honor is the first for Kilpatrick, who also becomes the first 87er to earn the award. []

Currently ranked second in scoring in the D-League this season with 29.2 points per game, Kilpatrick dropped 36 points against Rio Grande Valley on the 23rd and followed that up with a 37-point performance against the Raptors to secure himself the Player of the Week award. He also averaged 7.0 rebounds, 2.5 assists and 1.5 steals in those two games. Kilpatrick's three-point shooting leads the D-League at 48% and he went 11-for-19 from that range in the two games last week while also draining all 12 of his free throws.

Here are highlights from his 37-point outing against Raptors 905.

Kilpatrick averaged 5.5 points, 1.3 rebounds in four games with the Minnesota Timberwolves last season.

Catch Kilpatrick along with Jordan McRae and the rest of the Sevens (3-3) at the Bob Carpenter Center on the University of Delaware campus on Wednesday night, when they host the Grand Rapids Drive.
