American guard Mychal Green (193-G-83) put on an extraordinary performance in the last round for top-ranked Soleuvre, receiving a Eurobasket.com Player of the Week award for round 18. The 29-year old player had a double-double of 33 points and 11 rebounds, while his team beat Contern (7-11) 90-76. The game was between two of the league's top four teams. Thanks to this victory Soleuvre moved-up to the 1st position in the Luxembourg Diekirch League. Soleuvre is rather a weak team placed in lower part in the standings. They need more victories to improve their 7-11 record. Green turned to be Soleuvre's top player in his first season with the team. Former Ohio University star has very solid stats this year. Green is in league's top in points (2nd best: 25.3ppg), assists (4th best: 4.3apg) and averages impressive 57.8% FGP.
The second best player in last round's games was 24-year old American Leon Powell (200-F-88) of Contern. Powell had a very good evening with a double-double of 25 points and 26 rebounds. Bad luck as Contern lost that game 76-90 to the higher-ranked Soleuvre (7-11). It was definitely game of the week between two contenders to the title. Contern still maintains its place in the top 4 of the standings, even despite this loss. His team is not often considered as one of the league's best with a mere 7-11 record. Powell is a newcomer at Contern, but is already one of team's top players.
Third on the list of top players last round was American forward Billy McDaniel (201-F/C-84) of Black Star (#3). McDaniel showcased his all-around game by recording 24 points, eight rebounds and five assists in the last round. Despite McDaniel's great performance Black Star lost 77-84 to #2 ranked Basket Esch. But his team cannot count on just a single player as he also needs help of the other teammates especially in such crucial game. Black Star can only dream about fighting for top spots in the league. They have rather bad season and 1-17 record places them close to the bottom of the standings. Too bad for McDaniel he does not play for a better team. But maybe if he did, his season stats would not be that high. McDaniel has individually a great season in Luxembourg. After 17 games, he made it on the list of the league's leaders in points with 25.4ppg (best scorer) and rebounds with 11.2rpg (4th best). He also has 2.5spg, FGP: 57.9% and 3PT: 44.9%.
