Juventus center Geben claims Betsafe LKL Player of the Month honors
Juventus center Martinas Geben has continued to make great strides in his rookie season as a professional and will now have the Betsafe LKL Player of the Month award to show for it.
On loan from Zalgiris, the 24-year-old big man averaged 15.0 points, 5.6 rebounds and 1.0 block per game in March to lead Juventus to three wins in five games.
"It's always nice to be recognized. I always want to help the team as much as I can on the court. It was a good month for us, so we want to continue playing the same way going forward," Geben told LKL.LT.
"Right now, I'm fully focused on this season and playing in Utena. We'll see about next year. I do want to play for Zalgiris and represent the club."
Geben was joined on the Team of the Month by Kerem Kanter of Dzukija, Arminas Urbutis of Siauliai, Yannick Franke of Pieno Zvaigzdes and Martynas Gecevicius of Skycop.
