Big time performances secure spots in Gameday 4 Team of the Week

MIES (Basketball Champions League) - Once again, Basketball Champions League Gameday 4 was not short of action and star power.

But who were the standout players? It was a particularly difficult week to whittle it down, but we think we've got it! Here's the Team of the Week:

Bryon Allen, Guard

Last week's MVP is back again after an impossible to ignore performance for EWE Baskets Oldenburg against UCAM Murcia. The twenty-five year old guard went 10 of 15 from the field to register 26 points, 3 rebounds, and 5 assists, 1 steal and 1 block for a 31 efficiency rating, the highest of Gameday 4.

He led Oldenburg to their third straight victory in Group A, 100-80, as Allen continues to make a name for himself in the Basketball Champions League.

Arnas Butkevicius, Small Forward

Arnas Butkevicius not only had one of the lines of the week, but it was made all the more impressive that he did it in just three quarters. The 6'5" small forward registered 17 points, 8 rebounds and 6 assists across three periods, whilst also helping Neptunas tie a Basketball Champions League record by putting 114 points on the board, with a 114-73 victory over Gaziantep.

Butkevicius added a steal and a block for good measure, whilst going 6 of 11 from the field for a 23 efficiency rating.

Adonis Thomas, Small Forward

Banvit's Adonis Thomas showed his prowess in Gameday 4 with a  23-point, 3-rebound, 2-assist outing in their 85-74 win, which happened to be Medi Bayreuth's first defeat of the season.

The 24 year old American registered a 23 efficiency score, whilst also knowing down the tie-breaking three in the fourth to put Banvit in the driving seat the rest of the way.

Devin Oliver, Power Forward

Petrol Olimpija had the major upset of Gameday 4, a 81-75 win over Estudiantes for their first victory of the season, and no-one played a bigger role than Devin Oliver. 

Oliver finished with 17 points, 8 rebounds, 4 assists and 5 steals for a 23 efficiency rating, having an answer every time Estudiantes tried to get back into the game. 

Vladimir Dragicevic, Center

Thirty one year old Vladimir Dragicevic caused problems in the paint for Sidigas Avellino all night long on Tuesday, racking up a 23-point, 8-rebound outing in Stelmet Zielona Gora's 90-79 victory over Sidigas Avellino.

Dragicevic added a couple of huge buckets down the stretch to lead his squad to the win.
