26-year old guard Eugene Lawrence (184-G-86, agency: Two Points) had a great game in the last round for Hoverla and receives a Eurobasket.com Player of the Week award for round 19. He had the game-high 18 points adding four rebounds and eight assists for Hoverla in his team's victory, helping them to beat Ferro-ZNTU (#1, 9-3) 100-85. Hoverla maintains the 6th position in Ukrainian league. They would have been even better if they hadn't lost a few games earlier this season. Hoverla will need more victories to improve their 7-5 record. It was one of impressive evenings for Lawrence as usually he does not deliver so high stats. St.John's University graduate has very impressive stats this year. Lawrence is in league's top in assists (2nd best: 6.8apg).
Second best performed player last round was Daniel Kickert (208-C/F-83) of Dnipro. He is Australian-Dutch in his first season at Dnipro. In the last game Kickert recorded impressive 26 points and 6 rebounds. Bad luck as Dnipro lost that game 73-82 to the lower-ranked BC Odessa (#14, 3-9). The game was between two teams which are definitely not main contenders for the title. Dnipro keeps 11th position. 8 lost games are too many comparing to just three victories Dnipro managed to get this year. Kickert is a newcomer at Dnipro and quickly became one of team's most reliable players. He belongs to the best scorers in the league with 16.9ppg (#4). He also registered 4.9 boards per game.
Third place about best performers goes to guard Anthony Goods (191-G-87) of BC Kyiv (#13). Goods scored 27 points. He was a key player of BC Kyiv, leading his team to a 75-73 win against the higher-ranked Mykolaiv (#9, 4-7). BC Kyiv can only dream about fighting for top spots in the league. They have rather bad season and 3-9 record places them close to the bottom of the standings. Too bad for Goods he does not play for a better team. But maybe if he did, his season stats would not be that high. Goods has individually a great season in Ukraine. After 12 games, he made it on the list of the league's leaders in points with 19.3ppg (2nd best).
