Waikato Pistons, may God have mercy on your soul when Eric Devendorf and the Wellington Saints get a hold of you. 

A week after scoring 31 points in his first game for the Wellies (my nickname), Devo was at it again this past week, scoring 38 in a victory and nabbed his third Player of the Week accolade.

38 points (15/20 FG, 7/8 3pt, 1/1 FT), 5 assists, 2 blocks in the 126-90 win over the Harbour Heat.

Currently leading the league in scoring at 26.6 a game, Devendorf has been averaging 34.5 points in his first two games with the Saints and is shooting the three at 84% in those games.

The Saints are now in fourth place in the NBL with a 6-3 record.  Their latest win was over the league's No. 2 squad, the Harbour Heat.  Like the villain in an 80's sports movie, Waikato sits atop the league at 8-1...awaiting the eventual showdown.

Up next for Devo and the Saints, the 0-9 OceanaGold Nuggets.  I'd say Devo will fatten up his stats in this one but they're pretty much as fat as they can get as-is.
