Stelmet ZG maintains the 3rd position in Eurocup group K. Stelmet ZG is rather a weak team placed in lower part in the standings. But it was their 3rd lost game this season out of 5 games. In the team's last game Hodge had a remarkable 64.3% from 2-point range. It's his second year at Stelmet ZG and it's hard to imagine this team without him.

In the last game Davis recorded impressive 24 points, 9 rebounds and 2 assists. Of course Banvit BK cruised to a 94-85 relatively comfortable win over Budivelnyk (3-2). It was definitely game of the week between two contenders to the top position in group I. Budivelnyk managed to tie with Banvit BK at the very top position in the standings. His team has currently 3-2 record. Davis is one of the most experienced players at Banvit BK and has a reputation of one of team's most reliable players. He belongs to the best scorers in the league with 19.5ppg (#3). He also registered 5.4 boards per game.

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.

The formula: 1.5*PTS + 3*(REB+AST+ST+BL-TO) - 2*BSAG - 4*PF + 3*PFRV + 4*(2FGPM+3FGPM) + 1.5*FTM - 3*(2FGPA-2FGPM) - 3*(3FGPA-3FGPM) - (FTA-FTM)
