Triobet BBL Player of the Week: Vitali Liutych

The Triobet BBL Player of the Week award was pretty obvious this time, as nobody could match up against Vitali Liutych’s historic performance. The Kalev/Cramo swingman set a new scoring record in the league and helped his team to a big win against Barons kvartals.

 

Liutych was a menace for the opposing defense and ignited a run after halftime, scoring 18 points in the third quarter alone. The Belorussian finished the game with an astonishing 47 points; all while shooting at a 76.5 % clip from the field and also converting on 17-of-20 free-throws (best result since 2006).

The Small Forward also tallied 8 rebounds, 3 steals and an impressive block for a total of an efficiency rating of 49, just two points short of Edgars Jeromanovs all-time best performance with 51 this season.

This was just Liutych’s second game in the Triobet BBL, but he’s already proven to be a reliable scorer, getting to the line at will and averaging 35.0 points, 7.5 rebounds and 2.0 steals in the two games, after scoring 23 in the Eight-Finals game against TTU.
