26-year old guard Derek Wright (180-G-86) had a very impressive game in the last round for U.Mobitel.CN and receives a Eurobasket.com Player of the Week award for round 15. He had a double-double of 16 points and 14 rebounds, while his team beat Pitesti (#11, 7-8) 77-72. U.Mobitel.CN maintains the 7th position in Romanian league. They would have been even better if they hadn't lost a few games earlier this season. U.Mobitel.CN will need more victories to improve their 9-6 record. Wright turned to be U.Mobitel.CN's top player in his first season with the team. Austin Peay State University graduate has very impressive stats this year. Wright. Wright is in league's top in points (7th best: 16.5ppg) and averages solid 2.9spg and 54.7% FGP.
Second best performed player last round was Perry Petty (185-G-88) of Giurgiu. He is American guard in his first season at Giurgiu. In the last game Petty recorded impressive double-double of 27 points and 11 rebounds. Bad luck as Giurgiu lost that game 84-91 to the higher-ranked Ploiesti (#2, 11-3). Giurgiu is still in a red zone at 12th spot in the standings. His team is not often considered as one of the league's best with a mere 5-10 record. Petty is a newcomer at Giurgiu and quickly became one of team's most reliable players. Former University of Texas-Pan American star Petty is a former Eurobasket Summer League player, which is considered top international summer league in the market.
Third place about best performers goes to forward Leonard Filip (200-F-93) of Dinamo B. (#16). Filip scored 23 points and grabbed eleven rebounds (!!!). Despite Filip's great performance Dinamo B. lost 63-86 to the higher-ranked Rovinari (#9, 8-7). But his team cannot count on just a single player as he also needs help of the other teammates. Dinamo B. can only dream about fighting for top spots in the league. They have awful season losing so far all 15 games. Too bad for Filip he does not play for a better team. But maybe if he did, his season stats would not be that high. Filip has individually a great season in Romania. After 15 games, he made it on the list of the league's leaders in rebounds with 7.4rpg (6th best).

Troupe has played on three different continents (Europe, Asia and of course North America). He has played previously professionally in Cyprus (Apoel), Lebanon (Al Moutahed) and IBL (Vancouver Volcanoes). Troupe attended University of Portland until 2002 and it will be his 15th (!!!) season as a professional player. He could be described:
Porter is a combo guard that can also move to the 3 position in some leagues. Possessing a deadly shooting stroke, he is a great asset to any team. As a big guard he is also effective posting smaller players but is usually too quick for players his size. Having played point guard in the past, Porter has a great understanding of where all his teammates are on the floor. Porter is very dangerous in a pick and roll situation as both, a scorer or a provider. Defensively, Porter is at his best playing the passing lane using long arms to discourage passes and create turnovers. On the ball is very good at containing the ball handler. He can also lend a helping hand rebounding although this isn't his strength. Porter would be an asset to any team playing in the Eurochallenge or Eurocup.
