Former international point guard Andrea Pecile (187-PG-80) put on an extraordinary performance in the last round for second-ranked Biancoblu BO, receiving a Eurobasket.com Lega2 Player of the Week award for round 8. The 32-year old player was the main contributor (22 points, two rebounds and nine assists) to his team's victory, helping them to beat AcegasAps TR (#9, 4-4) 78-70. Biancoblu BO maintains the 2nd position in Italian Lega2. They are still close to the very top. Biancoblu BO would have been even better if they kept winning the games like in the last round. They have a solid 6-1 record. It's Pecile's second year at Biancoblu BO and it's hard to imagine this team without him. Andrea Pecile has solid league stats. He is league's best passer with 5.7apg. Pecile is in league's top in and averages impressive 2.6spg and 56.8% FGP.
The second best player in last round's games was 26-year old Nigerian Olaseni Lawal (208-F/C-86, agency: Pro One Sports) of Tezenis VE. Lawal had a very good evening with a double-double of 16 points and 19 rebounds. It was enough for Tezenis VE to edge the lower-ranked Aget Service IM (#14, 1-7) 71-67. Tezenis VE's 7th position in the standings has not changed. His team lost some distance to top teams. But 5-3 record is not bad and everything may still change. Lawal is a newcomer at Tezenis VE and despite he is not a team leader yet, every game he becomes more reliable player. Hopefully performances like the last one will happen more often. Former Wayne State College (MI) star Lawal is a former Eurobasket Summer League player, which is considered top international summer league in the market.
Third on the list of top players last round was American swingman Rodney Green (195-F/G-88) of Novipiu Casale (#6). Green got into 30-points club by scoring 39 points in the last round. He went also for seven rebounds . Despite Green's great performance Novipiu Casale lost 91-93in overtime to the higher-ranked Giorgo Tesi PT (#1, 7-1). But his team cannot count on just a single shooter as he also needs help of the other teammates. The last thing Novipiu Casale needs is to lose another game like this one. They lose more and more distance to the top teams. Their record is 5 victories and 3 lost games. Green has a great season in Italy. After only 8 games, he made it on the list of the league's leaders in points with 26.5ppg (best scorer) and assists with 1.4apg (2nd best). He also has 2.8spg, FGP: 58.4% and 3PT: 45.5%.
