American Marcus Kennedy (193-F-84, agency: Interperformances) had an amazing evening in the last round for Residence and that's him to receive a Eurobasket.com Player of the Week award for round 11. The 28-year old forward had a double-double of 27 points and twelve rebounds, while his team beat Musel Pikes (5-6) 83-72. Residence is placed at 6th position in Luxembourg Diekirch League. Residence is a typical solid league team placed somewhere in the middle or a little bit lower in the standings. They need more victories to improve their 5-6 record. Kennedy has many years of experience at Residence, through which he has constantly improved. Montevallo University graduate has very impressive stats this year. Kennedy is in league's top in points (2nd best: 26.0ppg), rebounds (4th best: 10.5rpg) and averages solid 2.3spg,56.8% FGP and 41.3% from behind 3-point line.
The second most remarkable performance in last round's games was 27-year old American point guard Terry Bryant (185-PG-85) of Black Star. Bryant impressed basketball fans with 37 points, 6 rebounds and 5 assists. Bad luck as Black Star lost that game 98-103 to the higher-ranked T71 (#7, 5-6). Black Star are still at the very bottom. 10 lost games are too many comparing to just one victory Black Star managed to get this year. Bryant is a newcomer at Black Star and it seems he did not have too much trouble to become one of team's leaders. He belongs to the best scorers in the league with 24.6ppg (#3). His other stats are also decent: 4.9rpg and 4.6apg.
The third best performed player last round was American Mychal Green (193-G/F-83) of Soleuvre (#8). Green showcased his all-around game by recording 24 points, fifteen rebounds (!!!) and six assists in the last round. Despite Green's great performance Soleuvre lost 80-84 to the higher-ranked Etzella (#3, 8-3). But his team cannot count on just a single player as he also needs help of the other teammates. The chances of Soleuvre not to end season at such low position in the league, however are less than slim as they have already lost 7 games, recording just four victories. With bigger assistance of his teammates, Green could try to bring Soleuvre's a little bit higher in the standings. Green has individually a great season in Luxembourg. After 11 games, he made it on the list of the league's leaders in points with 24.2ppg (4th best) and assists with 4.2apg (4th best).

We got involved many basketball scouts and journalists to assure it's accuracy.
