Proximus Spirou star Tuttle scoops up Top Perfomer honors

MUNICH (FIBA Europe Cup) - Proximus Spirou lead man Seth Tuttle took home the Top Performer honors in Gameday 2 of the Regular Season after posting a near triple-double performance on Tuesday.

The 25-year-old American power forward had his fingerprints all over Charleroi's 72-60 victory over Alba Fehervar with 17 points, 11 rebounds and 7 assists to his name, while also adding 3 steals and a block.

"It feels good to have this victory, because our team needed that a lot," Tuttle said after accumulating a ranking of 29 in Hungary. "We came out after a very difficult game in the domestic league and after a long journey."

Having inscribed a thrilling 84-74 victory over Szolnoki Olaj in an all-Hungarian derby in Group H, Falco Vulcano have two representatives in the team of the week in Milos Borisov and Darrin Govens.

The victory was particularly sweet for the 32-year-old Montenegrin big man Borisov, who came up with a big performance against his former team, posting a double-double of 19 points, 11 rebounds and 5 steals.

Meanwhile, the team's leading scorer Govens carried the team across the finish line in the final minutes for a well-rounded 24-point, 6-assist and 4-rebound contribution.

DeVaughn Akoon-Purcell once again impressed for Bakken Bears, helping the Danish champions open their victory count in the FIBA Europe Cup with a 95-76 blowout against SL Benfica.

The athletic swingman scored 25 points on 9-of-14 shooting, grabbed 5 rebounds and 3 assists, with the majority of his output coming in the 12-point fourth quarter.

Nevezis forward Valerii Likhodei also guided his team to the first triumph of the young season, playing a major role in an 84-83 upset of Avtodor Saratov.

The always-efficient 31-year-old veteran from Russia missed just one shot and did not commit a single turnover on the way to a solid line of 16 points, 6 rebounds and 3 assists.
