When he’s not running into fellow Wildcats (or fellow former Wildcats?), Josh Harrellson is turning heads in China. Jorts was named Asia-Basket.com NBL Player of the Week for his play last week, scoring 30 points and grabbing 23 rebounds in Chongqing FD’s win over Jiang Xi. From Asia-Basket:
The 23-year old forward had a double-double of 30 points and twenty three rebounds, while his team outclassed Jiang Xi (#9, 2-12) with 32-point margin 118-86. It allowed Chongqing FD to consolidate first place in the Chinese NBL. They would have been even better if they hadn’t lost a few games earlier this season. Chongqing FD has a very solid 11-3 record, but they cannot be too comfortable about keeping top position. In the team’s last game, Harrellson had a remarkable 55.6% from 2-point range. He just recently signed at Chongqing FD, being already a very valuable addition to the team. University of Kentucky graduate has very impressive stats this year. Harrellson is in league’s top in points (7th best: 21.7ppg) and averages solid 2.8 bpg and 2.4 spg.
Keep outclassing them, Jorts.
