Slam dunks, scintillating shooting and a triple-double in the Team of the Week

It's no mean feat to be considered one of the top five players on a given Gameday in the Basketball Champions League.

The ones that have just made the Team of the Week? They had special outings for their clubs and led them to important victories.

Guard: Thaddus McFadden

The mid-season signing has given PAOK some much needed scoring punch as they look to secure a spot in the Play-Offs. McFadden was 5 of 8 from deep and finished with 31 points and a +32 efficiency rating in their triumph over Neptunas.

Guard: Chris Kramer

The 16 points, 13 assists and 10 rebounds by the Indiana native added up to the Basketball Champions League's first triple-double. Kramer had a sparkling +36 efficiency rating after leading Play-Off hopefuls EWE Baskets to a crucial win over Muratbey Usak Sportif.

Forward: Aaron Doornekamp

Doornekamp is on a roll, and not surprisingly his Iberostar Tenerife team is as well. The Canadian had a second consecutive outstanding week. After leading the Canary Islanders to victory at SIG Strasbourg on Gameday 11, he returned home and drilled 6 of 8 3-pointers and led all scorers with 23 points in a triumph over Telenet Oostende.

Forward: Dusan Sakota

In the Game of the Week, Sakota poured in 27 points to lead AEK past MHP Riesen Ludwigsburg. The sweet-shooting Sakota was 10 of 17 from the floor with three of those makes 3-pointers.

Forward: Melvin Ejim

Ejim, another Canadian on the Team of the Week, is all about power and playing the game above the rim. Ejim's 23 points and 10 rebounds led Umana Reyer Venezuela to a 78-68 victory over Kataja Basket.
