EuroLeague Basketball announced that Armani Milano’s leader, Sergio Rodriguez, has been chosen as the MVP for October.

The 33-year-old guard was the point man, as Milan shook off an opening-night loss to claim five consecutive victories and close the month tied for first place.

Rodriguez finished October ranked sixth among all EuroLeague players in scoring with 16.7 points per game; fifth in assists (5.5); tied for fifth in triples made (15); tied for 10th in free throws made (20); and 11th in average PIR (17.3).

Most importantly, he was the team leader in minutes played as Milan posted a 5-1 record to claim a share of first place later in this season than the team ever had done before this century.
