Fan Feedback: Best 6th Man
- Updated: March 26, 2014
In the recent player polls players were asked who they thought was this season’s best 6th man and the winner was Cairns Taipans import Jamar Wilson followed by Wollongong Hawks import Kevin Tiggs and the Wildcats Jesse Wagstaff.
So we decided to ask the fans via social media who they thought was this seasons best 6th man. And the results weren’t that surprising:
Jamar Wilson – 59%
Kevin Tiggs – 28%
Jesse Wagstaff – 5%
Luke Schenscher – 4%
Tom Jervis – 2%
Mitch Creek – 2%

Kevin Tiggs actually leads the league in points per game off the bench with an average of over 15 points per game. Jamar Wilson is a close second at just over 13 points per game off the pine.
Jamar however averages more rebounds and assists per game off the bench than Tiggs. Although Tiggs has been more consistent than Wilson this season. Tiggs has scored 10 points or more in 20 of his 24 games this season compared to Wilson’s 17 of 26 games.
Wilson had perhaps the two best games off the bench this season when he scored 30 points, 5 rebounds, 4 assists, 1 block and 1 assist in 26 minutes against the 36ers in December 2013. And who can forget when he dropped 27 points, 5 rebounds, 3 assists and 2 steals in the first game of the season.
Wagstaff is averaging a respectable 11 points per game off the bench for the Wildcats.
