32-year old forward Paulo Cunha (200-F-80) had a great game in the last round for Vitoria SC and receives a Eurobasket.com Player of the Week award for round 9. He had a double-double of 11 points and 11 rebounds, while his team beat Alges (#10, 1-7) 80-68. Vitoria SC maintains the 5th position in Portuguese league. They would have been even better if they hadn't lost a few games earlier this season. Vitoria SC will need more victories to improve their 5-3 record. Cunha has many years of experience at Vitoria SC, through which he has constantly improved. Cunha has impressive league stats. He is in league's top in rebounds (4th best: 10.1rpg) and averages solid 54.2% FGP.
Second best performed player last round was Marcel Momplasir (205-C-81) of Lusitania. He is American center in his 4th season at Lusitania. In the last game Momplasir recorded impressive double-double of 16 points and 11 rebounds. Bad luck as Lusitania was edged in overtime by the higher-ranked Barcelos (#6, 4-5) 81-80. Lusitania is still second from the bottom in . 6 lost games are too many comparing to just one victory Lusitania managed to get this year. Momplasir is one of the most experienced players at Lusitania and has a reputation of one of team's most reliable players.
Third place about best performers goes to another Lusitania's star - forward Durrell Nevels (198-F-86). Nevels scored 17 points and grabbed thirteen rebounds (!!!). Despite Nevels' great performance Lusitania lost 80-81in overtime to the higher-ranked Barcelos (#6, 4-5). But his team cannot count on just these two top stars as they also need help of the other teammates. Lusitania can only dream about fighting for top spots in . They have rather bad season and 1-6 record places them close to the bottom of the standings. Too bad for Nevels he does not play for a better team. But maybe if he did, his season stats would not be that high. Nevels has individually a great season in Portugal. After only 7 games, he made it on the list of the league's leaders in rebounds with 8.9rpg (8th best).
