Kupsas collects Player of the Week award
Mindaugas Kupsas helped Juventus push the poor start of the season further even further in the rear-view mirror by leading the Utena side to their third win in the Betsafe LKL in the past four games.
The 26-year-old center snatched up the Player of the Week honors after scoring 25 points and grabbing 11 rebounds in a 92-79 win over Dzukija, collecting a career-high efficiency ranking of 36.
Having converted 8-of-14 shots from the field and 9-of-11 from the free-throw line, Kupsas was an unstoppable mystery for the opponents, who used nine fouls in their attempts to stop him.
"I'm happy that my personal performance helped us get the win. Just like any other victory, it means a lot for our team, as we want to bounce back after a poor start of the season," the player spoke.
