Othyus Jeffers Named D-League Rookie of the Year
Not a huge surprise. We had it down to him or Richard Hendrix. He's the most surprising player of the season, hands down. The Iowa Energy guard ranks in the top 10 in scoring, rebounding and steals. "Othyus is a warrior. He competes every night, puts winning first and foremost in his mind and refuses to be denied," said Energy head coach Nick Nurse. "He is absolutely deserving of the award and he gets a lot of credit in my book. In my 19 years of coaching he is without a doubt the most competitive player I’ve ever worked with."
