American Point guard Shane Larkin (180-PG-92) had a very impressive game in the last round for top-ranked Anadolu Efes, receiving a Interperformances Player of the Week award for round 20.
The 27-year old player was the main contributor (29 points, six rebounds and seven assists) to his team’s victory, helping them to outclass ASVEL (#12, 8-12) with 27-point margin 101-74. It allowed Anadolu Efes to consolidate first place in the Euroleague. Anadolu Efes have a solid 17-3 record. In the team’s last game Larkin had a remarkable six three-pointers out of 9 attempts. It’s his second year at Anadolu Efes and it’s hard to imagine this team without him. Former University of Miami star has very solid stats this year. Larkin is in league’s top in points (3rd best: 21.1ppg) and averages impressive 56.4% FGP and 50.4% from behind 3-point line.

The second best player in last round’s games was 29-year old Mike James (185-PG-90) of CSKA. James had a very good evening with 33 points, 3 rebounds and 3 assists. It was enough for CSKA to edge the lower-ranked Baskonia (#15, 7-13) 94-90. This victory allowed CSKA to move up to 3rd position in the standings. His team’s 14-6 record is not bad at all. James is a newcomer at CSKA, but is already one of team’s top players. He belongs to the best scorers in the league with 21.5ppg (#1). He also recorded 4.4 assists per game.

Third on the list of top players last round was Senegalese center Youssoupha Fall (221-C-95) of Baskonia (#15). Fall scored 19 points and grabbed ten rebounds. Despite Fall’s great performance Baskonia lost 90-94 to the higher-ranked CSKA (#3, 14-6). But his team cannot count on just a single player as he also needs help of the other teammates. The chances of Baskonia not to end season at such low position in the league, however are less than slim as they have already lost 13 games, recording just seven victories. With bigger assistance of his teammates, Fall could try to bring Baskonia’s a little bit higher in the standings. Fall has a very solid season. In 20 games in Euroleague he scored 6.7ppg. He also has 5.2rpg and FGP: 64.0%.

Other top performing players last week:
4. Othello Hunter (203-C-86) of Maccabi T-A – 14 points, 14 rebounds and 2 assists
