Fabulous Fesenko takes Gameday 7 MVP honor
UTENA (Basketball Champions League) - Just several days ago, Kyrylo Fesenko cut a disappointed figure after a 4-point, 6-rebound effort for Sidigas Avellino in a narrow home defeat to Iberostar Tenerife.
What might he have done better to have prevented the 76-75 loss on home soil? A lot.
On Tuesday night, he made amends, wreaking havoc and showing why the Italian club decided to bring him to Avellino this season for the club's Basketball Champions League campaign.
The 29-year-old center dominated in the Baltics, leading Sidigas Avellino to an 85-75 triumph over Juventus Utena.
Fesenko finished with 25 points, 13 rebounds and an eye-popping efficiency rating of +35 in Lithuania. All three were season highs for the Ukraine giant, who not surprisingly has scooped the honor as MVP of the Week.
The 2.16m Fesenko is averaging 10.9ppg and 6.9rpg in the Basketball Champions League after his latest performance. He is also good at the free-throw line, having made 22 of 31 (71 percent on the season).
