Talented Montenegrin Marko Loncovic (200-F-91) had a great game in the last round for Barcelos and that's him to receive a Eurobasket.com Player of the Week award for round 14. The 21-year old forward had a double-double of 27 points and fifteen rebounds, while his team beat Galitos-Tley (#11, 2-11) 90-75. Barcelos maintains the 7th position in Portuguese LPB. Barcelos 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 6-7 record. In the team's last game Loncovic had a remarkable 72.7% from 2-point range. He turned to be Barcelos' top player in his first season with the team. Loncovic has impressive league stats. He is league's best scorer averaging so far 20.5ppg. Loncovic is in league's top in rebounds (6th best: 9.5rpg) and averages solid 2.3spg and 59.3% FGP.
The second most remarkable performance in last round's games was 34-year old Cape Verdean center Elvis Evora (205-C-78) of league's best team Benfica. Evora impressed basketball fans with a double-double of 21 points and 10 rebounds. Of course he lead Benfica to another comfortable win outscoring the lower-ranked Alges (#10, 2-11) 99-51. Of course Benfica still keep 's top spot. His team belongs to top of the standings with 11-1 record and is considered one of the main candidates for the league title.

The third best performed player last round was another Barcelos' star - international guard Nuno Oliveira (186-PG-89).

He was another key player of Barcelos, helping his team with a 90-75 easy win against the lower-ranked Galitos-Tley (#11, 2-11). The chances of Barcelos ranking at the top of , however are very questionable as they have already lost 7 games, recording just six victories. With bigger assistance of his teammates, Oliveira could help Barcelos to bring them higher in the standings. Oliveira has a great season in Portugal. After 13 games, he made it on the list of the league's leaders in points with 16.4ppg (6th best).
