March 9, 2020 - 7DAYS EuroCup Top 16 MVP: Devin Williams, Tofas Bursa

devin williamsThe 7DAYS EuroCup Top 16 served as uncharted waters for both Tofas Bursa and its center Devin Williams and thanks to the stellar performances by the latter, the team passed through successfully to continue its challenge for EuroCup glory. Williams led his team in scoring in the Top 16 with 15.3 points per game, led the entire EuroCup with 7.8 rebounds and ranked this with an average performance index rating of 20.8. Even more important than those numbers was his team's 4-2 record, which booked Tofas a quarterfinals date with Promitheas Patras. For his standout play in leading Tofas to the next phase, Euroleague Basketball has chosen Williams as the 7DAYS EuroCup Top 16 MVP. Read more here.

January 30, 2020 - Top 16 Round 4 MVP: Loukas Mavrokefalidis, Promitheas Patras

loukas mavrokefalidisAt age 35, one of the top performers historically in the 7DAYS EuroCup, center Loukas Mavrokefalidis, re-emerged at the perfect moment to lift Promitheas Patras to a crucial road win and earn the Top 16 Round 4 MVP honor in the process. Mavrokefalidis poured in 28 points and ripped 13 rebounds as Promitheas blasted host Umana Reyer Venice 52-70 on Tuesday. He hit 6 of 11 two-pointers, 3 of 7 triples and 7 of 8 free throws while also drawing 9 fouls to amass a performance index rating of 37. His 6 offensive and 13 total rebounds matched his career highs, but not his points or PIR, which were merely his fourth-highest totals in 72 EuroCup games over seven seasons with six teams. In fact, Mavrokefalidis shares the competition record with a 55 PIR he recorded on October 14, 2015, while playing for AEK Athens. After him this week, two players tied with PIRs of 30 each: Devin Williams of Tofas Bursa and Julian Gamble of Segafredo Virtus Bologna. Read more here.
