Per EuroCup Basketball:
The 7DAYS EuroCup regular season is entering its final stretch and the first teams already made the Top 16. However, there are other teams still trying to reach that phase, as in the cases of Tofas Bursa and Buducnost VOLI Podgorica, for whom Sammy Mejia and Hassan Martin, respectively, earned MVP of the Week honors. Mejia and Martin had the highest performance index ratings of Round 7, with 29 each, as they pushed their teams to victories to stay alive in the Top 16 race. Mejia led all scorers this week with 26 points. He added 4 assists, 3 rebounds and 1 steal to lead Tofas to an 82-72 victory over Partizan NIS Belgrade to solidify third place in Group B. Martin was the catalyst of Buducnost’s first win of the season, posting 18 points, 7 rebounds, 3 assists and 4 blocks in a 69-76 road ambush against Dolomiti Energia Trento. Completing the top five individual performances of the round were Clevin Hannah of MoraBanc Andorra (PIR 28), Alen Omic of Joventut Badalona (26) and Arnas Butkevicius of Rytas Vilnius (25).
