|For the third time this season, Jantel Lavender was named EuroLeague Women Top Performe, albeit sharing the honour this week wth Sancho Lyttle |
Jantel Lavender is the EuroLeague Women Top Performer for a second consecutive week, although this week she will also need to make room atop the podium for Galatasaray center Sancho Lyttle.
Both of the players accumulated efficiency rankings of 29 in winning efforts. Lavender accompanied five rebounds with 26 points on 12-for-16 shooting from the field to take Wisla Can-Pack to their first home win of the season.
Spanish international Lyttle was a menace under the boards at both ends of the court, picking up 15 rebounds and 20 points, as Galatasaray were made to work hard for their victory over WBC Novi Zagreb.
Third spot in the rankings was also shared, between Evgenia Belyakova and Anna Cruz.
The latter was instrumental in taking Nadezhda to victory over her former club Rivas Ecopolis, scoring 14 points and picking up seven rebounds - her biggest performance to date for her new club.
Representing Sparta&K, shooting guard Belyakova had 20 points and 11 rebounds as the Moscow club continued their resurgent run in the competition, with a thrilling one-point win on the road in Prague.
