Omogbo named October MVP
There was no stopping Pieno Zvaigzdes ace Emmanuel Omogbo in the Betsafe LKL in October, with the Nigerian big man reeling in the Player of the Month honors.
The 23-year-old player averaged 16.8 points, 6.2 rebounds and 2.4 steals per game during the five-game stretch, guiding the Pasvalys side to a couple of victories.
"This award means a lot to me, because this season is a new challenge for me," Omogbo told LKL.LT. "I'm happy, but not fully satisfied. I want to help the team get more victories. That's my goal for November and the rest of the season."
Averaging a league-best efficiency of 20.6, the Pieno Zvaigzdes leader headlined the Team of the Week that also featured the Neptunas duo of Jerai Grant and Lorenzo Williams, Dominique Sutton of Rytas and Kendrick Brown of Dzukija.
