  Euroleague season 2010 / 2011 Top 16

March 7, 2011 - Sportingbet MVP for February: Rasho Nesterovic, Olympiacos Pireaus

Maximum effect in a minimum amount of time is the definition of efficiency on the basketball court. Add to that great timing in crucial games and it could also define the difference that center Rasho Nesterovic of Olympiacos Pireaus, Euroleague Basketball's choice as the Sportingbet MVP for February, made for his team over the second half of the Top 16. After a one-week break in the phase, the Reds faced back-to-back road games against the teams directly above and below them in their group. But in both games, they were behind heading into the final quarter. Nesterovic helped solve each of those dilemmas. He scored 10 points in the final quarter - including a memorable trio of tip-ins - to hand Power Electronics Valencia its only home defeat in three months. The next week, Nesterovic did it again, reeling off 9 fourth-quarter points against Fenerbahce Ulker, which was unbeaten in the Top 16 until then. Read more here.
