Taveion Hollingsworth was a standout performer with 25 points, 13 rebounds, 4 assists and 3 steals for Petrolina AEK in their 78-76 effort against Rostock Seawolves. The guard made most of his opportunities by nailing 8-of-12 shots from the field and 7-of-8 free throws to finish with an incredible efficiency valuation of 39.

The ending wasn't as pleasant for Erick Neal who did his part in CSM CSU Oradea's 91-93 home loss against Patrioti Levice. Neal finished the game with 30 points, 7 assists and 4 rebounds, with his 31 efficiency spurred by an amazing 8-of-12 shooting from deep.
