VOTE: Who posted the best FIBA Europe Cup performance of 2022?

MUNICH (Germany) - There were some stellar individual FIBA Europe Cup performances in 2022, and we've got five standout displays in contention to be voted as the best of the calendar year.

All of the candidates have come from the current edition of the competition including a pair of teammates making the list from the same encounter.

You can cast your vote below to let us know who you think did it best. But first, here's everything you need to know about the leading candidates.


Gaziantep 83-62 Heroes Den Bosch (FIBA Europe Cup Regular Season 2022-23)
Statistics: 34 PTS, 6 AST, 10 3PM - 42 EFF

Frankamp saved the best efficiency performance of 2022 for the final day of action after firing in an impressive 10 three-pointers in a 34-point haul. The 27-year-old was unstoppable from beyond the arc and also completed an all-round display with 6 assists, 5 rebounds and 3 steals to lead Gaziantep to another win in the Second Round on the road in the Netherlands.

DESHAWN FREEMAN (Patrioti Levice)

Game: Patrioti Levice 94-80 Opava (FIBA Europe Cup Regular Season 2022-23)
Statistics: 29 PTS, 13 REB, 6 AST, 1 STL - 41 EFF

As far as efficiency rating goes, Deshawn Freeman's double-double against Opava is one of only two performances to break 40 in the calendar year. 12-of-16 shooting from the field, double-digit rebounding, plus more than a handful of assists dished out for good measure - Freeman was an irresistible force in his team's Regular Season closer.

MIHA LAPORNIK (Patrioti Levice)

Game: Patrioti Levice 94-80 Opava (FIBA Europe Cup Regular Season 2022-23)
Statistics: 37 PTS, 3 AST, 3 STL, 2 REB - 38 EFF

That's right, the Slovak club had two of the top individual performances of the year in the same game - and it was in the big win over Opava that propelled the team to the Second Round. While Freeman cleared the boards and also dished the ball, Lapornik was focused strictly on buckets: he made 8-of-11 threes, though he also managed a few takeaways for good measure.


Game: Keravnos BC 77-68 Patrioti Levice (FIBA Europe Cup Regular Season 2022-23)
Statistics: 27 PTS, 12 REB, 3 AST - 36 EFF

Perpetual Top Performer Krubally's best game so far - according to efficiency rating - came in this win over Patrioti Levice. As usual, he was the game leader in scoring and rebounding. He also shot a perfect 5-of-5 on threes, drew a handful of fouls, and led his team in plus/minus, all before fouling out just before the end of the contest game. A busy night on all fronts for the big man. 

HENRI KANTONEN (Karhu Basket) 

Game: Karhu Basket 105-71 Patrioti Levice (FIBA Europe Cup Second Round 2022-23)
Statistics: 26 PTS, 7 AST, 5 STL - 34 EFF

Karhu Basket's Finnish forward couldn't be stopped in his club's blowout win over Patrioti Levice - on both ends of the floor. Kantonen made seven three-pointers and also dished 7 assists, whilst collecting 5 steals to make this one of the best individual performances in the early going of the Second Round this season.
