Point guard Drasko Knezevic (186-PG-93) had an amazing evening in the last round for league's second-best Zrinjski HT and that's him to receive a Eurobasket.com Player of the Week award for round 11. The 23-year old playmaker had the game-high 27 points adding six rebounds and eight assists for Zrinjski HT in his team's victory, helping them to beat Sloboda Tuzla (#4, 6-4) 80-69. The game was between two of the league's top four teams. Zrinjski HT is placed at 2nd position in Bosnia and Herzegovina Division I. They are still close to the very top. Zrinjski HT would have been even better if they kept winning the games like in the last round. They have a solid 8-2 record. In the team's last game Knezevic had a remarkable seven three-pointers out of 16 attempts. He turned to be Zrinjski HT's top player in his first season with the team. Knezevic has impressive league stats. He is league's best scorer averaging so far 22.8ppg. Knezevic is in league's top in assists (2nd best: 6.9apg) and averages solid 2.9spg and 53.7% FGP.
The second most remarkable performance in last round's games was 32-year old Croatian center Franko Kastropil (212-C-84) of Siroki Primorka. Kastropil impressed basketball fans with a double-double of 18 points and 13 rebounds. Of course he led Siroki Primorka to another comfortable win 82-63 over the lower-ranked Bosnjak (#10, 2-9) being unquestionably team leader. This victory allowed Siroki Primorka to move up to 7th position in the standings. His team is not often considered as one of the league's best with a mere 4-7 record. Kastropil is one of the most experienced players at Siroki Primorka and has a reputation of one of team's most reliable players.
The third best performed player last round was Montenegrin Dragomir Marojevic (207-C-81) of Gradjanski (#9). Marojevic got into 30-points club by scoring exactly 30 points in the last round. He went also for eight rebounds . Despite Marojevic's great performance Gradjanski lost 79-95 to the higher-ranked Spars Sarajevo (#5, 6-5). But his team cannot count on just a single shooter as he also needs help of the other teammates. Gradjanski can only dream about fighting for top spots in the league. They have rather bad season and 3-8 record places them close to the bottom of the standings. Too bad for Marojevic he does not play for a better team. But maybe if he did, his season stats would not be that high. Marojevic has individually a great season in Bosnia. After 11 games, he made it on the list of the league's leaders in points with 14.1ppg (9th best) and rebounds with 6.7rpg (7th best).
