Mitchell’s 29 points and 7 assists give him Player of the Week award – Feb 15, 2014
24-year old point guard Kwamain Mitchell (178-PG-89) had a very impressive game in the last round for Usti n/Labem and receives a Eurobasket.com Player of the Week award for round 30.
Second best performed player last round was Ashton Mitchell (183-G-88, agency: 011 Sports) of BK Kolin. He is American guard in his first season at BK Kolin. In the last game Mitchell recorded impressive double-double of 44 points and 10 rebounds. Bad luck as BK Kolin lost that game 81-93 to the higher-ranked Usti n/Labem (#5, 17-12). BK Kolin is still in a red zone at 8th spot in the standings. His team is not often considered as one of the league’s best with a mere 11-16 record. Mitchell is a newcomer at BK Kolin and quickly became one of team’s most reliable players. He belongs to the best scorers in the league with 16.7ppg (#1). His other stats are also decent: 4.2rpg and 5.5apg.
Third place about best performers goes to forward Martin Gniadek (201-F/C-90) of BK Opava (#3). Gniadek scored 24 points and grabbed ten rebounds. He was a key player of BK Opava, leading his team to a 77-63 easy win against #1 ranked Orli Prostejov in a game of the week. BK Opava needs these victories very badly if they think about getting closer to top teams. Their record at this point is 17 victories and 11 lost games. Gniadek has a very solid season. In 28 games in Czech Republic he scored 10.3ppg. He also has 6.2rpg and FGP: 62.8%.
