February 13, 2019 - 7DAYS EuroCup Top 16 MVP: Bojan Dubljevic, Valencia

bojan dubljevicBojan Dubljevic enhanced his already legendary 7DAYS EuroCup career by playing some of his best basketball to lead Valencia Basket through an undefeated Top 16 stage. Already the competition's career leader in scoring, he moved atop the career rebounding charts, as well, during the Top 16 and flirted with personal bests in scoring, rebounding and assists, too. Dubljevic ranked third in the Top 16 in both total performance index rating and rebounds while lifting his team to the best record in the phase and ensuring it home-court advantage throughout the 7DAYS EuroCup Playoffs. After studying the work of all the candidates, these feats made it easy for Euroleague Basketball to choose Dubljevic as the 7DAYS EuroCup Top 16 MVP. Read more here.
