follow us on
36-year old forward Omar Sneed (198-F-76) put on an extraordinary performance in the last round for Mersin and receives a Eurobasket.com Player of the Week award for round 8. He had the game-high 27 points adding seven rebounds and five assists for Mersin in his team's victory, helping them to beat Antalya (2-6) 96-86. The game rather meaningless between the teams, which do not have any influence on the top of the standings. Mersin is placed at 13th position in Turkish league. Too late to salvage the team, which is currently ranked such low. They already lost 6 games and recorded just two victories. In the team's last game Sneed had a remarkable 90.9% from 2-point range. He turned to be Mersin's top player in his first season with the team. University of Memphis graduate has very impressive stats this year. Sneed is in league's top in rebounds (8th best: 7.1rpg) and averages solid 61.0% FGP.
Second best performed player last round was Jovo Stanojevic (208-C-77, agency: Beo Basket) of TED Kolejliler. He is Serbian center in his first season at TED Kolejliler. In the last game Stanojevic recorded impressive double-double of 29 points and 13 rebounds. Bad luck as TED Kolejliler was edged by slightly higher-ranked Aliaga (#6, 4-4) 70-68. TED Kolejliler managed to keep the same 8th spot in the standings. His team is not often considered as one of the league's best with a mere 3-5 record. Stanojevic is a newcomer at TED Kolejliler and quickly became one of team's most reliable players. He belongs to the best scorers in the league with 20.0ppg (#1). His other stats are also decent: 6.5rpg and 3.4apg.
Third place about best performers goes to guard Steven Burtt (185-G-84) of Tofas (#11). Burtt scored 26 points and passed eight assists. Despite Burtt's great performance Tofas lost 77-85 to the higher-ranked Banvit BK (#4, 7-1). But his team cannot count on just a single shooter as he also needs help of the other teammates. The chances of Tofas not to end season at such low position in the league, however are less than slim as they have already lost 5 games, recording just three victories. With bigger assistance of his teammates, Burtt could try to bring Tofas' a little bit higher in the standings. Burtt has individually a great season in Turkey. After only 8 games, he made it on the list of the league's leaders in points with 16.9ppg (5th best) and assists with 4.1apg (9th best).
Other top performing players last week: 4. Warren Carter (205-F/C-85) of Antalya - 23 points, 5 rebounds and 2 assists 5. David Hawkins (194-G-82) of Galatasaray - 26 points and 3 assists 6. Dee Brown (185-PG-84) of Turk Telekom - 29 points, 2 rebounds and 5 assists 7. Artsiom Parakhouski (210-C-87) of Olin Edirne - 12 points and 16 rebounds 8. Joey Dorsey (206-C/F-83) of Gaziantep - 20 points and 12 rebounds 9. Gasper Vidmar (211-C/F-87) of Besiktas - 13 points and 11 rebounds 10. Bo McCalebb (178-PG-85) of Fener.Ulker - 18 points, 3 rebounds and 6 assists
