Pieno Zvaigzdes newcomer Omogbo wins Betsafe LKL Player of the Week honors
Pieno Zvaigzdes forward Emmanuel Omogbo became the Betsafe LKL Player of the Week after putting together excellent performances against Neptunas and Siauliai.
After a nondistinct debut last week, the Nigerian big man bounced back with inspiring back-to-back games. Although a 24-point and 10-rebound double-double was not enough for a win against Neptunas, Omogbo got on the board by collecting a team-high 15 points, 5 rebounds and 4 steals in an 81-79 victory against Siauliai.
Over the two-game span, the player averaged 19.5 points, 7.5 rebounds and 2.0 steals, which added up to an efficiency ranking of 26.5.
The rest of the Betsafe LKL Team of the Week was filled by Zalgiris point guard Nate Wolters, Siauliai swingman Ignas Vaitkus and Arnas Butkevicius of Rytas and Juventus big man Vaidas Cepukaitis.
