Third place about best performers goes to guard Mire Chatman (187-PG-78, agency: Higher Vision Sports) of league's second-best Unics. Chatman showcased his all-around game by recording 12 points, eight rebounds and eight assists in the last round. He was a key player of Unics, leading his team to a 64-57 win against #3 ranked Galatasaray. Unics needs these victories very badly if they think about taking over top position in group L. Their record at this point is 3 victories and 2 lost games. Chatman has a very solid season. In 11 games in Eurocup he scored 11.4ppg. He also has 4.5rpg, 4.6apg and 2.1spg.
