Former Long Beach state basketball standout James Ennis won the NBL's Perth Wildcat's MVP award in his initial season, helping the team to another NBL championship.

Ennis becomes the second imported players to win the MVP award in eight years, and follows club legends James Crawford, Ricky Grace, Andrew Vlahov, Paul Rogers and Shawn Redhage as Gordon Ellis Medallists in Championship seasons.

Ennis averaged 21.2 points, 7.1 rebounds, and 2.1 assists this year, as well as tallying 47 steals and 66 3-pointers enroute to the chmapionship.

“I am honoured to be given this award, it means a lot to me, but I couldn’t have done it without my teammates and coaches. It’s been a great season,” said Ennis.

“The fans here in Perth have been fantastic, I’ve really enjoyed my time here, so I’m very proud to be recognised among some of the best Wildcats players in history.”
