The second best player in last round's games was 26-year old Lithuanian Evaldas Kairys (207-F/C-90) of Usak. Kairys had a very good evening with 25 points and 9 rebounds. Bad luck as Usak lost that game 73-83 to the higher-ranked Galatasaray (#5, 7-2). Usak is still second from the bottom in the standings. 7 lost games are too many comparing to just two victories Usak managed to get this year. Kairys is well-known at Usak and is a proven leader in his second season with the team.
Third on the list of top players last round was American forward Devin Thomas (206-PF-94) of TED Kolejliler (#16). Thomas showcased his all-around game by recording 21 points, nine rebounds and four assists in the last round. Despite Thomas' great performance TED Kolejliler lost 67-85 to the higher-ranked Demir IBB (#9, 4-5). But his team cannot count on just a single player as he also needs help of the other teammates. TED Kolejliler can only dream about fighting for top spots in the league. They have awful season losing so far all 9 games. Too bad for Thomas he does not play for a better team. But maybe if he did, his season stats would not be that high. Thomas has individually a great season in Turkey. After only 7 games, he made it on the list of the league's leaders in rebounds with 10.0rpg (#1 in league). He also has 1.1bpg and FGP: 53.5%.
