American Vernon Goodridge (206-F-84) put on an extraordinary performance in the last round for Khimik and that's him to receive a Eurobasket.com Player of the Week award for round 38. The 28-year old forward had a double-double of 27 points and twelve rebounds, while his team beat DniproAzot (#11, 10-16) 81-76. Khimik maintains the 5th position in Ukrainian Superleague. They would have been even better if they hadn't lost a few games earlier this season. Khimik will need more victories to improve their 15-11 record. It was one of impressive evenings for Goodridge as usually he does not deliver so high stats. La Salle University graduate has very impressive stats this year. Goodridge is in league's top in rebounds (9th best: 6.5rpg) and averages solid 1.5bpg and 56.5% FGP. Worth to mention Goodridge played also at Eurobasket Summer League, which helped him get the job in pro basketball.
The second most remarkable performance in last round's games was 26-year old American forward Charles Thomas (203-F-86) of Cherkasy. Thomas impressed basketball fans with 20 points, 8 rebounds and 2 assists. Bad luck as Cherkasy lost that game 67-74 to Mykolaiv (13-13). Despite lost game Cherkasy moved up to 7th position in the standings. His team lost some distance to top teams. But 13-13 record is not bad and everything may still change. Thomas is a newcomer at Cherkasy 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 17.1ppg (#5). He also registered 5.5 boards per game.
The third best performed player last round was American Winsome Frazier (193-F/G-82) of Kryvbasbasket (#10). Frazier showcased his all-around game by recording 19 points, ten rebounds and eleven assists (!!!) in the last round. He was a key player of Kryvbasbasket, leading his team to a 88-78 win against the higher-ranked Ferro-ZNTU (#3, 17-9). The chances of Kryvbasbasket ranking at the top of the league, however are very questionable as they have already lost 15 games, recording just eleven victories. With bigger assistance of his teammates, Frazier could help Kryvbasbasket to bring them higher in the standings. Frazier has a very solid season. In 25 games in Ukraine he scored 12.4ppg.
