Week 13 Top Performers: Thomas, Magarity, Bertsch, Vandersloot, Gardner
MUNICH (Germany) - Alyssa Thomas turned up the dial for ZVVZ USK Praha during the penultimate game of the Regular Season to take Performer of the Week honors.
No stranger to the accolade in what has been another highly productive campaign, the forward was once again the driving force for her team. Thomas contributed 17 points, 8 rebounds and 7 assists in a one-sided 85-54 success against Olympiacos SFP.
Regan Magarity was a tower of strength for Basket Landes as they claimed arguably their most eye-catching win of the season by beating defending champions Sopron Basket on the road. The Swedish frontcourt ace paced a 62-59 victory with 16 points, 9 rebounds and 4 assists.
Courtney Vandersloot made her long-awaited debut for what continues to look like an unstoppable Fenerbahce Alagoz Holding. The Istanbul powerhouse stormed past Valencia Basket Club 93-61 with the playmaker showing why she is so highly regarded after harvesting 11 points, 12 assists and 4 steals.
Despite a heart-breaking 75-73 loss to CBK Mersin Yenisehir Bld, there is still an opportunity for Spar Girona to make the Quarter-Finals and much of the responsibility of taking them will be on the shoulders of Rebekah Gardner. She did everything she could in defeat against Mersin with 24 points, 4 rebounds and 4 steals.
Kangoeroes Mechelen won't be appearing in the last eight, but Morgan Bertsch is at least helping them to finish proudly with some super competitive shows. She posted 26 points as well as 4 assists and 2 steals as her team were only just edged out 74-73 by Beretta Famila Schio.
