Triobet BBL Player of the Week – Karlis Apsitis

While you shouldn’t single out individuals in a great team performance, it would have been much harder for the Ogre/Kumho Tyre to bounce back from a losing start with two victories without Karlis Apsitis’ terrific play. That is why we have him as our Triobet BBL Player of the Week this time around.
