Terrific! Thomas van der Mars’ high level has not faded away this season and it was a question of time before he impressed everyone again with his mighty performances.
Last night Dutch Senior center gained 19 points and 14 rebounds as the Pilots passed through Portland State (83-71) last Thrusday. He was also perfect in the paint (9-9 FG), dished 3 assists, stole a ball and blocked a shot in 30 minutes. Without a doubt, he became the best player of the game.
This has been his best night so far and his second double double since he got on the 28th of November vs Murray State.
His teammate, power-forward Volodymyr Gerun started the game along with Thomas and achieved 8 points and 1 rebound in 17 minutes as he committed 5 personal fouls.
The Pilots (6-1 in the standings) are going to compete against Oregon State next Saturday at home.
