Vote: Who was MVP of the FIBA Europe Cup Qualifying Tournaments?

MUNICH (Germany) - The FIBA Europe Cup Qualifying Tournaments have been completed and there were numerous outstanding individual performances. But which player deserves the MVP honor?

Take a closer look at the leading contenders among the seven tournaments and decide for yourself in our fan vote.

BK KVIS Pardubice did not reach the Regular Season but that was no fault of Joseph Brunk. The American big man collected 20.5 points and 10.0 rebounds while shooting 58.6% from the field for the Czechia team.

Robert Carter played a major role in Bnei Ofer Dist Herzliya winning their Qualifying Tournament as the power forward averaged 18.5 points, 11.0 rebounds and 1.5 steals. The 29-year-old collected 27 points and 14 rebounds in the decisive win over Egis Kormend.

Jarred Godfrey lit it up for Boras Basket as he averaged 27.0 points on 59.3% shooting and 5.5 rebounds, but that production was not enough as the Swedish club could not qualify for the Regular Season.

Meanwhile, Travis McConico led all scorers in the Qualifying Tournaments with 27.5 points to go with 5.0 rebounds and 4.5 assists. However, Bulgarian side Chernomorets Burgas could only split their two games and missed out on a place in the Regular Season.

Manisa BBSK won their Qualifying Tournament at home and a big reason for that was John Roberson, who averaged 20.5 points, 2.5 rebounds and 4.0 assists across their two victories.

Another club to win their tournament as hosts was Kataja Basket with Nike Sibande collecting 23.5 points, 4.5 rebounds and 1.5 steals for the team from Finland. The coolest man in the arena, Sibande knocked down a pair of clutch free throws at the death to ensure Kataja topped their group and advanced.

Casademont Zaragoza lived up to their status as favorites in reaching the Regular Season. The Spanish side were led by Mark Smith, who tallied 20.5 points, 6.0 rebounds and 3.5 assists in impressive all-around showings in Ostersund.

There was also an impressive showing from Shavar Reynolds with his 16.5 points and 7.0 assists per game helping Keravnos BC claim one of the Lucky Loser spots to advance.
