Triobet BBL Player of the Week - Janari Joesaar

It could be argued that both results were slightly unexpected this week, as Pieno Zvaigzdes got the better of Vytautas on the road in Prienai, while University of Tartu secured quite an easy win in Tallinn against Kalev/Cramo. Our Player of the Week is from the latter game, as Janari Joesaar was a beast in the paint for Tartu.


Joesaar excited his team‘s fans with 14 points and a whopping 16 rebounds, as his team mounted an impressive road victory in the first game of two for bronze. The forward also added 3 assists to the tally and all in just 23 minutes.

The 23-year-old‘s play has been very impressive in the play-offs so far and he’s been a vital part of any of the team’s success. Joesaar has reached averages of 13.1 points, 6.7 rebounds, 2.3 assists and 1.4 steals, proving to be very versatile on the defensive end as well.

Thursday marks the end of the Triobet BBL season and Joesaar and University of Tartu will be hoping they can hold their end of the bargain at home and win bronze.
