Quarter-Finals First Leg Top Performers: Konontsuk, Bliznyuk, Williams, Dotson, Grant
MUNICH (Germany) - Artur Konontsuk was the leader in efficiency during the First Legs of Quarter-Finals action in FIBA Europe Cup this week after achieving a mark of 27.
The BC Kalev/Cramo forward put up a big 22-point, 10 rebound double-double as well as 5 three-pointers as his performance was no doubt key in his club's 80-77 win over Brose Bamberg.
Bogdan Bliznyuk always fills up the statsheet, and his 12 points, 11 rebounds and 5 assists proved to be no different. BC Budivelnyk Kyiv needed every bit of his help to take a 73-72 win over Cholet Basket to take back to France.
His teammate Jerai Grant wasn't slacking either, after producing a massive 15 points and 17 rebounds for a big double-double of his own - adding a couple of assists for good measure.
American big man Malik Williams just missed out on delivering Anwil Wloclawek a double-double. However, he still managed 19 points, 9 boards and 2 steals in his team's incredibly narrow 85-84 loss to Gaziantep.
On the other side of that matchup was a 27-point display from Damyean Dotson after he fired in 7 three-pointers and added 4 rebounds to help propel the Turkish side to an important opening victory on the road.
