It all began with F Reggie Williams, who eventually was called-up by the Golden State Warriors for his stellar play. During his stint in the D-League, Williams represented the Skyforce with leadership and command as he earned Performer of the Week and Performer of the Month awards in Sioux Falls. Not to mention, his election to the NBA D-League All-Star game was another notch on his belt.
Upon Williams' departure, F Alexander Johnson stepped up and took the leadership role on the team. Following in Williams' footsteps, Johnson earned the Performer of the Month award for the month of March. Averaging a double-double for the season, he began to dominate the D-League on a nightly basis. For his efforts, he was called up by the Houston Rockets. That made two Skyforcers that were rewarded for their impressive performances at the minor league level.
Thus, the Skyforce ended their year on a high note with all the commendable awards that they earned during the season. Next season will bring its own share of pleasant surprises for Sioux Falls as they continue to develop quality basketball talent year in and year out.
