Triobet BBL Player of the Week - Andriy Agafonov

For the first time this season, the Player of the Week will not be coming from a side that achieved victory. Pieno Zvaigzdes‘ Center Andriy Agafonov was efficient as ever in the Semi-Final against University of Tartu, as the two sides finished with the score level at 88.

 

This is Agafonov‘s second Weekly MVP award this season, as he‘s proved to be one of the league‘s most dominant big men.

In the tie game against Tartu, the Ukrainian had team-highs of 24 points and 7 rebounds, while he made 8-of-11 from the field and 7-of-8 off the charity stripe. He was excellent with 29 ranking points, and it was his second-highest ranked game throughout the season.

Agafonov has been in scintillating form throughout the play-offs, as he‘s averaged 15.0 points, 7.6 rebounds and 2.0 assists, adding up to 20.4 ranking points per game.

That was a bit of an upgrade over his regular season campaign, as he averaged 13.3 points, 4.9 rebounds and 0.7 assists in the group stage – an average of 15.5 ranking points.

Pieno Zvaigzdes will be needing more of the same from Agafonov, as he tries to outmatch Dominykas Milka in the return game against Univesity of Tartu in Pasvalys.
