Obie Trotter 2nd Player of the Week in EuroChallenge

25.11.2010

Szolnoki Olaj guard Obie Trotter was red hot against Nizhny Novgorod, firing his team to a first win in two games in Group A.

The 24 year old guard was especially hot from behind the arc and put up a real clinic against his Russian opponents.

He was 8/14 from long range on his way to a game high 35 points, also contributing six rebounds, four assists and two steals.

As if that had not been enough the 1.86m playmaker even had one block in what was an outstanding overall performance.

He was also there when it counted, scoring 10 points in the last quarter and sealing the win with two free throws in the last minute.

Hi accumulated efficiency of 37 earned him the week two EuroChallenge Player of the Week award, well ahead of the duo of Petar Popovic and Mohamed Abukar who finished second with an efficiency of 30.

Popovic's Spartak St. Petersburg thrashed Gravelines also in Group A and the Serbian center needed only 23 Minutes for his tally.

For Lugano, Abukar's double-double was not enough to avoid defeat in Portugal as they crashed to a narrow loss against Benfica.
