Swedish Nathalie Fontaine (188-G-93) put on an amazing game in the last round for league's leader Wasserburg and that's her to receive a Eurobasket.com Player of the Week award for round 22. The 23-year old guard had the game-high 36 points adding six rebounds and two assists for Wasserburg in her team's victory, helping them to crush Chemnitz (#8, 8-14) with 25-point margin 87-62. It allowed Wasserburg to consolidate first place in the German DBBL. Wasserburg has a very good season and are considered to have a run for the championship title. They improved their record to 20-2. Fontaine turned to be Wasserburg's top player in her first season with the team. Nathalie Fontaine averages this season 14.4ppg.
The second most remarkable performance in last round's games was 23-year old Canadian forward Kim Pierre-Louis (183-F-93) of Donau-Ries. Pierre-Louis impressed basketball fans with a double-double of 18 points and 15 rebounds. Of course Donau-Ries cruised to a 86-74 relatively comfortable win over the higher-ranked Bad Aibling (#6, 11-11). This victory allowed Donau-Ries to move up to 9th position in the standings. Her team is not often considered as one of the league's best with a mere 8-14 record. Pierre-Louis is a newcomer at Donau-Ries and it seems she did not have too much trouble to become one of team's leaders. She belongs to the best scorers in the league with 18.2ppg (#3). She also registered 10.0 boards per game.
The third best performed player last round was former international forward Svenja Greunke (188-F/C-89) of Marburg (#3). Greunke showcased her all-around game by recording 21 points, ten rebounds and four assists in the last round. She was a key player of Marburg, leading her team to a 88-76 win against the lower-ranked Halle (#10, 7-14). Marburg needs these victories very badly if they think about getting closer to top teams. Their record at this point is 14 victories and 8 lost games. Greunke has a great season in Germany. After 21 games, she made it on the list of the league's leaders in rebounds with 8.1rpg (7th best).
