Scottie Wilbekin (Darussafaka): Through 7 games, the American combo guard has put up 19 points, 5.7 assists, 1.2 steals and 3.14 three-pointers per game, while shooting 48.9 percent from beyond the arc. Wilbekin has set career-best mark in efficiency with an impressive 62.2 effective field-gold percentage and 66.7 true shooting percent. Wilbekin has led Darussafaka to rank #1 thanks to his high basketball IQ, good court vision and his scorer instinct.
John Roberson (Asvel): Asvel Lyon-Villeurbanne needed a win and John Roberson made sure they got it. The veteran point guard completed a monster performance against Herbalife Gran Canaria where he scored 42 points with an impressive 11 for 16 from beyond the arc. Through 10 games, Roberson averaged 17.4 points and 4.5 assists. He made a staggering 4.2 threes per game while connecting on 56.8 percent of his attempts.
Ryan Broekhoff (Lokomotiv Kuban): The Valparaiso product posted his best statistical regular season in the EuroCup, averaging 12.1 points with an impressive 79.0 True Shooting percentage and 5.3 rebounds with a 23.3 PER. Broekhoff is the type of player every team desperately needs. The Australian forward do all the little things that help winning a game. No doubt, he doesn’t get the recognition he deserves.
Ondrej Balvin (Herbalife Gran Canaria): The Czech is taking his game to the next level. Through ten games, Balvin led the league in rebounding at 8.4 per game with an impressive total rebounding percentage of 25.6, while also adding 10.3 points, 2 assists and 1 block. Offensively, beyond Balvin’s good assist numbers he’s a real ball-mover who keeps the action flowing in Luis Casimiro’s offense.
Stephane Lasme (Unics): At age 35, Lasme still put up 17 points and 6.5 rebounds per game and is a key part of Unics. Lasme has lead the league in blocks with an Euro career-high 2.5 per game with an impressive block percentage of 9.8, and his versatility, toughness and smarts make him a great defensive player.
Amadeo Della Valle was the second best scorer in the league with 18.78 points per game.
Marcus Eriksson has become an elite shooter for Herbalife Gran Canaria. Former FC Barcelona averaged 17.1 points with a 54.4 percent from beyond the arc.
Drew Gordon played a key role for Zenit with 14 points and 8.4 rebounds per game.
