With all Day 32 matches played on Tuesday, PRO A League regular season ended and the best eight teams qualified for the playoffs. But before that, on Wednesday, a ceremony was organized in order to name the best individuals in certain categories.

The highlight of the evening and the last trophy to be given was the PRO A League MVP and it belonged to Zachery Peacock of JL Bourg Basket. He averaged 19.3 points, 6.1 rebounds and 2.3 assists with a total average value of 20.3 and helped his team finish on the ninth place (17-17 record), unfortunately, one step away from the playoffs. Last season, Peacock was the MVP of PRO B League.

As Monaco Basket finished the regular season on top with a 25-9 record it comes as no surprise that Zvezdan Mitrovic was named the best coach for the second year in a row.

D.J. Stephens won the best sixth man title for giving Le Mans Sarthe Basket some much-needed help from the bench with 9.5 points and 3.1 rebounds on average.

Adam Mokoka could be the future of the league as he was chosen for the best young player. The 19-year-old (18th of July 1998) averaged three points, two rebounds and one assist in 14 minutes of play for BCM Gravelines Dunkerque.
