Triobet BBL hands out individual awards

The Triobet BBL regular season has come to a close and all 16 teams participating in the next round are already known. We also know the best players in each of the main statistical categories.

 

The league-leaders of the Regular season in points, rebounds and assists will be honored with individual awards.

The game is all about putting the basket in the net, and no one did it better than Trevin Parks this season, as he averaged 22.3 points per game. The American guard, standing at just 176 cm, kept the defenses on their toes and was a high-volume scorer throughout the season, scoring in double-digits in all 12 games. His highest scoring outburst came in the close win against Parnu, as he dropped 33 points. However, despite the 25- year-old’s league-leading scoring and top-five efficiency, Barsy found it hard to come by victories and took just two wins after losing their first eight.

TTU’s Joonas Jarvelainen came in as a close second, as he averaged 20.8 points for the Estonian side, as he closed in on Parks in the two final weeks with a 26 and 33 point games.

As far as rebounds go, it was mostly a battle between two players, who have clearly been the best players in the league this season. The Belgian big man Thomas van der Mars was unbeatable in this category, as he put up an average of 11.9 rebounds per game. Of the 12 games, he finished with a double-double ten times, as his scoring averages were up there with the very best of them, at 17.5. He was also the league’s most efficient player and racked up numerous Player of the Month awards.

Right behind him, both in rebounds and double-doubles, was Barons kvartals center Denis Krestinin, who averaged 11.0 rebounds per game. He set the season record with 18 boards back in November and was a true leader of one of the league’s best teams.

The assists category was a non-contest, as Toni Prostran was heads and shoulders above the rest. The Nevezis point guard assisted on 8.6 of his teammates baskets per game, creating plenty of opportunities for an easy basket. The Croatian set a Triobet BBL record for assists in the game against Barsy, as 17 of his passes led to a bucket.
