It was to be expected and it does not surprise that Deron Williams' 50 points in Besiktas' home win over Göttingen also earned the guard the Week 3 MVP award in the EuroChallenge.
His 7 of 10 three pointers and 10 for 13 from inside the arc, together with his three rebounds accounted for an efficiency index of 44, the highest rating reached so far in the 2011/12 season.
Williams outstanding performance set a new scoring record in the EuroChallenge and also put his name on a short list of players ever to score 50 points or more in a FIBA Europe competition.
He now has the second highest scoring average in the competition at 24.6 despite scoring only seven points in the Eurocup Qualification against Dexia in Mons.
Runner-up John Holland dropped 29 points on BK Prostejov as Roanna claimed a narrow 85-87road win.
