Nikola Pekovic-Montenegro and Panathinaikos

Montenegrin big man played brilliantly in leading his home nation to a perfect 4-0 record in EuroBasket Division B play, leading the team in points (17.3), rebounds (6.8) and blocked shots (1.3), all while shotting nearly 66% from two-points.  Pekovic helped lead Partizan Belgrade to the Euroleague play-offs last season before moving to Greek powerhouse Panathinaikos in the off-season.
