24-year old guard Milos Teodosic (195-G-87) put on an amazing game in the last round for league's best team CSKA and receives a Eurobasket.com Player of the Week award for round 20. He got a double-double of 15 points and 13 assists, while his team crushed Spartak-Prim. (#8, 7-10) with 24-point margin 90-66. It allowed CSKA to take over top position in the Russian league. CSKA has a very good season and are considered to have a run for the championship title. They improved their record to 15-1. In the team's last game Teodosic had a remarkable 54.5% from 2-point range. It was one of impressive evenings for him as usually he does not deliver so high stats. Teodosic has impressive league stats. He is in league's top in assists (2nd best: 5.4apg).
Second best performed player last round was Primoz Brezec (216-F/C-79) of N.Novgorod. He is Slovenian forward in his first season at N.Novgorod. In the last game Brezec recorded impressive double-double of 20 points and 11 rebounds. It was enough for N.Novgorod to edge slightly lower-ranked Enisey (#10, 2-15) by 2 points 99-97. The game was between two teams which are definitely not main contenders for the title. But N.Novgorod left the very bottom place moving slightly to 9th position. 14 lost games are too many comparing to just three victories N.Novgorod managed to get this year. Brezec is one of the most experienced players at N.Novgorod and has a reputation of one of team's most reliable players.
Third place about best performers goes to forward Vladimir Veremeenko (208-F-84, agency: RU-Basket Management) of Unics (#6). Veremeenko scored 22 points and grabbed fifteen rebounds (!!!). He was a key player of Unics, leading his team to a 84-68 easy win against Krasnie Krilya (7-10). The chances of Unics ranking at the top of the league, however are very questionable as they have already lost 10 games, recording just seven victories. With bigger assistance of his teammates, Veremeenko could help Unics to bring them higher in the standings. Veremeenko has a great season in Russia. After 16 games, he made it on the list of the league's leaders in rebounds with 5.9rpg (8th best). Vladimir Veremeenko has also Russian passport and can play in the league with a status of domestic player.
