American Emily Hatch (185-F-89) had a great game in the last round for league's second-best Lemvig and that's her to receive a Eurobasket.com Player of the Week award for round 9. The 23-year old forward had a double-double of 22 points and seventeen rebounds, while her team beat Amager (#6, 3-6) 66-54. Lemvig maintains the 2nd position in Danish Dameligaen. They are still close to the very top. Lemvig would have been even better if they kept winning the games like in the last round. They have a solid 8-1 record. It's Hatch's second year at Lemvig and it's hard to imagine this team without her. University of San Diego graduate has very impressive stats this year. Hatch is league's best scorer averaging so far 21.3ppg and leads league in rebounds with 12.9rpg. Hatch is in league's top in assists (4th best: 3.4apg) and averages solid 59.7% FGP.
The second most remarkable performance in last round's games was 25-year old American center Trenice Fuller (193-C-87) of Falcon. Fuller impressed basketball fans with a double-double of 20 points and 14 rebounds. Bad luck as Falcon lost that game 64-78 to the lower-ranked Aabyhoj (#7, 2-7). Falcon managed to keep the same 3rd spot in the standings. Her team's 6-3 record is not bad at all. Fuller is one of the most experienced players at Falcon and has a reputation of one of team's most reliable players. She belongs to the best scorers in the league with 17.8ppg (#2). She also registered 11.2 boards per game.
The third best performed player last round was Sofie Preetzmann (180-G-95) of Aabyhoj (#7). Preetzmann scored 23 points and grabbed thirteen rebounds (!!!). She was a key player of Aabyhoj, leading her team to a 78-64 easy win against the higher-ranked Falcon (#3, 6-3). Aabyhoj can only dream about fighting for top spots in the league. They have rather bad season and 2-7 record places them close to the bottom of the standings. Too bad for Preetzmann she does not play for a better team. But maybe if she did, her season stats would not be that high. Preetzmann has individually a great season in Denmark. After only 9 games, she made it on the list of the league's leaders in points with 14.1ppg (5th best).
