24-year old forward Jessica Kuster (188-F-92) had a great game in the last round for league's best team PEAC-Pecs and receives a Eurobasket.com Player of the Week award for round 4.

It allowed PEAC-Pecs to consolidate first place in the Hungarian A Division. They maintain a perfect record without any lost game in the league. The season is still on an early stage, but PEAC-Pecs already had a very good start winning all 4 without losing a single one. Kuster turned to be PEAC-Pecs' top player in her first season with the team. Rice University graduate has very impressive stats this year. Kuster is in league's top in points (2nd best: 19.5ppg), rebounds (4th best: 8.5rpg) and averages solid 53.7% FGP.

PINKK-Pecsi are still at the very bottom. 4 lost games are too many considering they did not win any game. Whiteside is a newcomer at PINKK-Pecsi and quickly became one of team's most reliable players. She belongs to the best scorers in the league with 15.5ppg (#6).

After only 3 games, she made it on the list of the league's leaders in points with 20.7ppg (best scorer).
