Triobet BBL Review: Top Performances

With the first part of the 2015-16 Triobet BBL season in the books, let’s take a look at the best performances across the main statistical categories over the first three months of action in the league. 

Can these records be broken in 2016? We will have to wait and see!

 

POINTS. Having scored 41 points against Barsy in one of the first games of the season, Liepaja/Triobet’s guard Khristopher Richard still holds the season-high in Triobet BBL. The 26-year-old American is currently fourth among all scorers in the league, averaging 17.4 points per game.

Former Port of Parnu leader Andrew Warren, who left for Kosovo during the winter break, came closest to Richard’s record, when he scored 40 points in an all-Estonian clash versus AVIS Rapla. However, even that was not enough for the Parnu side to achieve a victory.

REBOUNDS. At the top of the best performances in terms of rebounds, we also find a Liepaja/Triobet player. Zack Stephan set the season high by grabbing 18 rebounds in a double overtime loss to Vytautas in December. It is no coincidence that the 23-year-old center is leading the league in rebounds with 11.4 boards per game.

His American compatriot Malcolm Rhett from Barons/LDz had the second best performance in the league this season with 16 rebounds against one of the league outsiders Port of Parnu back in November.

ASSISTS. Despite holding three of the four top assist performances of the season so far, Rait-Riivo Laane is actually not at the season record-holder, as Port of Parnu veteran Silver Leppik registered a season-high 12 assists against Nevezis.

Right below, we have four excellent performances by the Triobet BBL assist leader Laane, who is the top man for dimes with 6.4 assists per game. He has dished out nine or more assists on three occasions, with his best performance coming against Barsy, when he had 11.

THREE-POINTERS. With a total of 30 makes from beyond the arc, Jurmala/Fenikss sharpshooter Edgars Jeromanovs leads the league in three-pointers made. Close behind is Johnny Berhanemeskel from TLU Kalev with 28 three-pointers.

Jason Calliste of Barons/LDz makes the most three-pointers per game with 3.2 successful long-range shots per game, with Berhanemeskel ranking second at 3.1 makes per game.

STEALS. The honors of the best performance in the steal category are co-shared by Port of Parnu teammates Andrew Warren and Silver Leppik, who both registered games with seven steals. Warren was the first to set the record in October, but a month later Leppik repeated his feat. Strangely enough, neither of them are in Triobet BBL Top 10 in steals.

BLOCKS. Mindaugas Kupsas from Nevezis recorded the most blocks in a single game with five rejections against Barons/LDz back in October. With an average of 1.4 blocks per game, the 215 cm giant from Lithuania shares the third place among top rim protectors in the league.

Jurmala/Fenikss forward Ivars Zvigurs and William Artino from AVIS Rapla have have both had games with four blocks to their name.
