Petronyte reigns supreme with back-to-back Top Performer awards

MUNICH (Germany) - After picking up the Top Performer award for Gameday 1 of the Regular Season, Reyer Venezia center Gintare Petronyte has repeated the feat by taking the honors for Gameday 2.

The Lithuanian continued her rich vein of form by producing a perfect shooting performance for the Italians as they swept aside BCF Elfic Fribourg 116-63. Petronyte netted 19 points without missing a shot and also came close to a double-double by harvesting 9 rebounds.

Ramla are already into the Round of 16 and that is largely due to the terrific productivity of Betnijah Laney, who hit top gear in the 97-63 win against Orman Genclik. She came close to landing a triple-double after registering a stellar 22 points, 11 rebounds and 9 assists.

In a great gameday for the frontcourt operators, Nadia Colhado was a major handful for the Carolo Basket defense, as the Lointek Gernika Bizkaia center catapulted her team to a 57-50 win. The Brazilian amassed 21 points and 15 boards, as well as blocking 4 shots.

The first player to populate the backcourt in our lineup is Hortense Limouzin, who will always remember starring for Landerneau Bretagne Basket as they made history in the competition. She was the leading light at both ends of the court with 16 points, 7 steals and 6 rebounds as the French club took down Phantoms Basket Boom 94-44.

Finally, Slovenia have another young star beginning to shine brightly as Zala Friskovec dropped a career-high 30 points for KSC Szekszard. She was outstanding in an 88-71 victory against Bellona Kayseri Basketbol, shooting 59 percent and also grabbing five rebounds.
