Top 16 Week 5 co-MVPs: Scoonie Penn and Axel Hervelle
In one of the most balanced weeks ever seen in the Top 16, it comes as no surprise that two players tied for the best individual performances. Scoonie Penn of Efes Pilsen and Axel Hervelle of Real Madrid are the Top 16 Week 5 co-MVPs, each with a 32 index. Hervelle had 20 points and 11 rebounds in his team's 100-103 overtime loss at home against Maccabi Elite. He added an assist, 2 steals, a blocked shot and 8 fouls drawn for his 32 index. Meanwhile, Penn shined in Efes' 79-83 home loss against Partizan Igokea with a career-high 33 points on 7-for-10 three-point shooting and 4 of 5 free throws. He added 3 rebounds, 4 assists and 2 fouls drawn for his index. Terence Morris of Maccabi Elite paced his team to that major win in Madrid with 23 points on 4-of-5 three-point shooting and 3 of 3 free throws. He added 13 rebounds, 2 assists, 3 steals, 2 blocks and 3 fouls drawn for a 31 index. Felipe Reyes of Real Madrid, with a 30 index, and Jeremiah Massey of Aris TT Bank, who achieved a 29 index, complete the top individual performances this week.
Individual highs: Penn, 33 points
Penn not only earned Top 16 Week 5 co-MVP honors, but was also was the week’s best scorer with a career-high 33 points against Partizan. Lynn Greer remains the Top 16’s top scorer at 20.8 points per game. Morris and Kerem Gonlum of Efes Pilsen led all rebounders by pulling down 13 boards apiece this week. Morris leads all Top 16 rebounders at 10.8 per night. Louis Bullock of Real Madrid, Theo Papaloukas of CSKA Moscow and Pepe Sanchez of AXA FC Barcelona each dished 7 assists this week. Papaloukas and DeJuan Collins of Zalgiris are tied for first place in the Top 16 assists chart at 6.4 per game. Olympiacos’s Greer also collected 5 steals – the most in the competition this week. Ibrahim Jaaber of Lottomatica Roma is the Top 16 steals leader at 3 per game. Ioannis Bouroussis of Olympiacos had 3 blocks this week, but Omer Asik of Fenerbahce Ulker is averaging 3.8 per game, the best average ever in the Top 16. Only Morris with 23 points and 13 rebounds, Hervelle with 20 points and 11 rebounds, and Reyes with 21 points and 11 rebounds, registered double-doubles this week. Incidentally, that trio all played in the same game – the instant classic between Real Madrid and Maccabi Elite.
