Week 12 Top Performers: Ogden, Kaukiainen, Miller-McIntyre, Simmons, Patton
MUNICH (Germany) - Mark Ogden was the leader in efficiency to close out FIBA Europe Cup's Second Round, achieving a mark of 27 on Wednesday.
The American big man put up 21 points and 6 rebounds, as CSM CSU Oradea closed out their campaign with a big 93-72 win over Keravnos BC - missing out on qualification in the process.
Severi Kaukianinen's 22 points, 5 rebounds and 5 assists helped lead Karu Basket to an 85-76 victory over Hapoel B-Cure Laser Haifa; finishing 5-1 in the Second Round. The Finnish club will take on FC Porto in the Quarter-Finals in a bid to continue their dream run.
Codi Miller-McIntyre scored 24 points on 75-percent shooting from the floor as well as dishing out 6 assists in Gaziantep's narrow 97-95 win over HAKRO Merlins Crailsheim. After going undefeated in the Second Round, the Turkish club advances to play Anwil Wloclawek next month and Miller-McIntyre will look to carry over the momentum.
Brose Bamberg's Gerel Simmons helped guaranteed his club’s trip to the last eight, draining four three-pointers on his way to a 24-point performance. The guard also added 5 rebounds as the German side downed Anwil 90-86, and will face BC Kalev/Cramo in March.
Finally, Justin Patton rounds out the lineup this week after the Cholet Basket center scored 13 points, while pulling down 5 rebounds and swatting 5 shots in his team's 95-83 victory over FC Porto. The French club will take on BC Budivelnyk Kyiv in the post-season.
