MUNICH (FIBA Europe Cup) - Peter Lorant inspired another Alba Fehervar victory in the Second Round with his best game of the season in the FIBA Europe Cup, claiming the Top Performer honors.

The 32-year-old Hungary international scored a season-high 27 points in an 85-77 win over his former club Egis Kormend, while also adding 9 rebounds, 3 assists and a pair of steals.

Having knocked down 10-of-12 field goal attempts and all five free-throws, Lorant collected an overall efficiency index of 38, a personal best in the FIBA Europe Cup.

Meanwhile, Bakken Bears power forward Jeffrey Crockett continued to excel in coach Steffen Wich's high-paced offense and played a large part in the Danish side's 100-96 triumph over Szolnoki Olaj.

The player registered a double-double of 20 points and 11 rebounds with a helping hand of 5 assists, while going a season-high 3-of-5 from three-point range.

Strahinja Milosevic of Szolnoki Olaj had an equally impressive individual performance in a losing effort, filling the boxscore with 24 points, 5 rebounds, 7 assists, a steal and a block.

Demir Insaat point guard Erving Walker rounds out the Team of the Week with another solid night from beyond the arc, going 5-of-8 from deep en route to a team-high 19 points in a 78-75 win over Nevezis.
