Experienced Mali Djenebou Sissoko (185-F/C-82) put on an extraordinary performance in the last round for league's second-best Belfius Namur and that's her to receive a Eurobasket.com Player of the Week award for round 13. The 30-year old power forward had a double-double of 22 points and eighteen rebounds, while her team crushed Waregem (#3, 10-3) with 23-point margin 77-54. The game was between two of the league's top four teams. Belfius Namur is placed at 2nd position in Belgian Division I. They are still close to the very top. Belfius Namur would have been even better if they kept winning the games like in the last round. They have a solid 11-2 record.
