29-year old forward Derrick Brown (203-F-87) had a very impressive game in the last round for Anadolu Efes and receives a Eurobasket.com Player of the Week award for round 10. He had a double-double of 22 points and 12 rebounds, while his team beat Maccabi T-A (5-5) 86-77. Anadolu Efes is placed at 7th position in Euroleague. Anadolu Efes is a typical solid league team placed somewhere in the middle or a little bit lower in the standings. They need more victories to improve their 5-5 record. It's Brown's second year at Anadolu Efes and it's hard to imagine this team without him. Derrick Brown averages this season 13.5ppg and 6.6rpg.
Second best performed player last round was Nicolo Melli (205-PF-91) of Brose Bask.. He is Italian forward in his 2nd season at Brose Bask.. In the last game Melli recorded impressive 26 points, 5 rebounds and 2 assists. Bad luck as Brose Bask. was edged by the higher-ranked CSKA (#1, 9-1) 90-88. Brose Bask. are still at the very bottom. 8 lost games are too many comparing to just two victories Brose Bask. managed to get this year. Melli is well-known at Brose Bask. and he already established his position as one of the team's leaders.
Third place about best performers goes to guard Keith Langford (193-SG-83) of Unics (#14). Langford scored 25 points and passed four assists. He was a key player of Unics, leading his team to a 100-79 easy win against slightly higher-ranked EA7 Armani (#13, 4-6). The chances of Unics not to end season at such low position in the league, however are less than slim as they have already lost 7 games, recording just three victories. With bigger assistance of his teammates, Langford could try to bring Unics' a little bit higher in the standings. Langford has individually a great season in Euroleague.
