Experienced American Bonell Colas (205-F-82) had a very impressive game in the last round for Randers and that's him to receive a Eurobasket.com Player of the Week award for round 30. The 30-year old forward had a double-double of 34 points and twenty rebounds, while his team crushed Horsens IC (#3, 19-8) with 18-point margin 97-79. Randers is placed at 5th position in Danish Ligaen. Randers is a typical solid league team placed somewhere in the middle or a little bit lower in the standings. They need more victories to improve their 13-14 record. In the team's last game Colas had a remarkable 70.6% from 2-point range. He turned to be Randers' top player in his first season with the team. University of Florida graduate has very impressive stats this year. Colas is league's best scorer averaging so far 26.0ppg and leads league in rebounds with 15.2rpg. Colas is in league's top in and averages solid 2.2bpg and 65.6% FGP.
The second most remarkable performance in last round's games was 25-year old Canadian forward Marvell Waithe (205-F-87) of second-ranked Bakken. Waithe impressed basketball fans with 32 points and 8 rebounds. Of course he lead Bakken to another comfortable win 104-88 over the lower-ranked Aalborg (#10, 2-25) being unquestionably team leader. Bakken's second position in the standings has not changed. His team's 21-6 record is not bad at all. Waithe is one of the most experienced players at Bakken and has a reputation of one of team's most reliable players.
The third best performed player last round was American Caleb Walker (193-G-89) of Naestved (#6). Walker scored 25 points and grabbed ten rebounds. Despite Walker's great performance Naestved lost 75-78 to the lower-ranked Aarhus BC (#9, 7-20). But his team cannot count on just a single player as he also needs help of the other teammates. The chances of Naestved ranking at the top of the league, however are very questionable as they have already lost 14 games, recording just thirteen victories. With bigger assistance of his teammates, Walker could help Naestved to bring them higher in the standings. Walker has a great season in Denmark. After 26 games, he made it on the list of the league's leaders in points with 19.2ppg (5th best) and rebounds with 7.9rpg (7th best). He also has 2.0spg and FGP: 52.0%.
