Andrey Semenov (201-F-90) put on an extraordinary performance in the last round for Runa Basket and that's him to receive a Eurobasket.com Superleague 2 Player of the Week award for round 33. The 26-year old forward had the game-high 37 points adding nine rebounds and three assists for Runa Basket in his team's victory, helping them to beat Cheb.Yastreby (#2, 23-12) 98-89. Runa Basket maintains the 8th position in Russian Superleague 2. The season is in a full swing, so it's only a dream for the team to make it into top half of the standings. For contrary they may face relegation if the situation turns from bad to worse. Runa Basket have already lost 30 games and recorded just five victories. In the team's last game Semenov had a remarkable 53.8% from 2-point range and got five three-pointers out of 8 attempts. He turned to be Runa Basket's top player in his first season with the team. James Madison University graduate has very impressive stats this year. Semenov is league's best scorer averaging so far 20.6ppg. Semenov is in league's top in rebounds (3rd best: 7.2rpg).
The second most remarkable performance in last round's games was 22-year old power forward Nikita Tkachenko (205-F/C-94) of second-ranked Cheb.Yastreby. Tkachenko impressed basketball fans with 28 points, 4 rebounds and 2 assists. Bad luck as Cheb.Yastreby lost that game 89-98 to the lower-ranked Runa Basket (#8, 5-30). Cheb.Yastreby managed to keep the same second spot in the standings. His team's 23-12 record is not bad at all. Tkachenko is a newcomer at Cheb.Yastreby and it seems he did not have too much trouble to become one of team's leaders. He belongs to the best scorers in the league with 14.1ppg (#7).
The third best performed player last round was Mikhail Yudov (198-F-89) of Burevestnik (#7). Yudov scored 17 points and grabbed five rebounds. Despite Yudov's great performance Burevestnik lost 72-77 to the higher-ranked Tambov (#1, 26-9). But his team cannot count on just a single player as he also needs help of the other teammates. The chances of Burevestnik ranking at the top of the league, however are very questionable as they have already lost 21 games, recording just fourteen victories. With bigger assistance of his teammates, Yudov could help Burevestnik to bring them higher in the standings. Yudov has a very solid season. In 34 games in Russia he scored 7.2ppg.
Other top performing players last week: 4. Denis Hloponin (206-F-81) of Spartak SP - 19 points and 5 rebounds 5. Igor Kaytukov (195-G/F-90) of Dynamo-CBK - 21 points, 6 rebounds and 4 assists 6.
