devin bookerIf the top performance in Round 3 of the 7DAYS EuroCup Top 16 sounded familiar, that's because Devin Booker of FC Bayern Munich posted the same three career-high numbers against the same opponent just last season.

This time, he shot 10 of 14 on two-pointers, 7 of 7 on free throws and drew 8 fouls, too, and his team needed every stat he could give them.
