Outstanding efforts lead to Team of the Week

Big numbers, big shots and big results - it all adds up to the Team of the Week in the Basketball Champions League.

Here is the eye-popping pentad, the five players that caused the biggest buzz on Gameday 10.

Guard, Bryon Allen

We've seen this sort of performance before from Allen - 33 points, 5 rebounds, 3 assists, 2 steals and 1 block. Remember two weeks ago? That 35-point explosion also got Allen on the Team of the Week. His contribution on Gameday 10 was even more significant for CEZ Nymburk, who shot down Banvit in the CEZ Sportovni Hala on Tuesday night, 76-65. The often air-born Allen has got all the moves. An American, Allen finished with a +32 efficiency rating.

Guard, Daniel Mullings

No player has been more consistent, perhaps, and more flashy this season than Kataja Basket's Mullings. Expect the spectacular from the high-flying Mullings, whose 22 points, 10 rebounds, 4 assists and 3 steals were key in the team's fourth consecutive victory, a 74-57 win at Le Mans Sarthe.

Guard, Patrick Richard

Richard bonds with the Maccabi Rand Media fans

Don't count Maccabi Rand Media out just yet. Much of that is owed to Richard, who was a menace for the Israeli club against Pinar Karsiyaka on Wednesday in Group B. Richard led his team to their fourth victory in the Basketball Champions League, a 79-68 triumph, and helped keep it in the Play-off hunt.  

Center, Stefan Bircevic

Bircevic averages 12.8pts and 6.8rbs in the Basketball Champions League 

The Olympic silver medalist is proving to a specialist at hitting game-winning or game-tying lay-ups in the waning seconds. It was the latter of those two on Tuesday night, with Bircevic's basket forcing overtime at Stelmet Zielona Gora in Poland. The Belgrade outfit then won, 81-80. Bircevic had 19 points and 11 rebounds for Partizan, who were missing three players and coach Aleksandar Dzikic.

Forward, Romeo Travis

Travis has given some oomph to Strasbourg

When SIG coach Vincent Collet brought Travis back to Strasbourg several games into the season, he did so for his experience and toughness. Both of those qualities came to the fore on Wednesday night as Travis had 16 points, 8 rebounds and a game-winning free-throw at Telenet Oostende. SIG's victory kept them one game behind Iberostar Tenerife in Group D.
