Less games due to the Christmas break in December didn’t do anything to slow down some of our biggest MVP contenders. *Ranking (Last Month’s Rank) 1. (1) James Ennis Ennis remains the top ‘Cat in the race for the NBL MVP after yet another strong month for both player and team. In three games for December the American swingman managed 22.7ppg at a very efficient 57% from the field, and while his other numbers were down slightly on his season averages it had no bearing on his performances. His athleticism is unmatched by any other player in the league and his scoring power is second to just one. Ennis continues to fill the stat sheet with season numbers hovering on 22.3ppg and 6.7rpg, and despite taking a big volume of shots each game his shooting percentage remains at a very healthy 50%, making him extremely tough to beat for this season’s award.
