Triobet BBL Player of the Week - Jurijs Aleksejevs

Jurijs Aleksejevs had a magnificent night individually against Nevezis, as he led Jekabpils to a victory in the second leg of the series. Despite a Player of the Week performance to go with it, the victory was not as sweet as they had hoped for, as the Latvians were knocked out of the Play-offs.

 

Despite coming out on top 80-77 against Nevezis, Jekabpils were literally a second away from the Quarterfinals, as Jermaine Love glided through the defense for a last-second layup that made it +1 for the Lithuanians in the combined score of the series.

Aleksejevs proved to be a dominant force, missing just one shot in a 20-point night. The forward made both of his three-pointers and nailed 6-of-7 from closer in. He also added 12 rebounds to record his third double-double of the season.

He's been a true asset for Jekabpils all season long, leading the team both in scoring and rebounding with 14.8 and 8.7 averages, respectively.
