Just a handful of youngsters have made it into the next stage (Top 16) of Eurolegue competition. We will continue to take a look at those who did with their respective teams, in our weekly report.

Omer Asik is on fire right now. Again he was left out of the S5 but responded big. He had 13 points , 11 boards and 5 huge blocks. Games like that make him a hot commodity in his quest for a first round spot in the upcoming draft.

Partizan again squeased out a close win against a quality team. Nikola Pekovic was once again the man for Partizan producing at his usual high level with exceptional numbers: 16 points and 7 boards.

Semih Erden collected 9 points and 9 rebounds to nearly help upset poerhouse Aris in a close hard fought battle.

Novica Velickovic produced nicely all over the stat sheet with 10 points and 4 rebounds and assists. he was also solid from threepointland in the process.

Milenko Tepic had somewhat of an down night. He tallied 9 points but missed out on his normal production in all the other fields.

Gasper Vidmar is not validating his starting job at the moment. 4 points and 3 boards are just not handling business.

Milos Teodosic did not score the way he can but he had good numbers in other categories, going for 3 rebounds and 4 dimes.

Martynas Gecevicius did his job in just 4 minutes he got one spot up three that he converted. You cant ask for much more than that.

Oguz Savas didn’t amount anything noteworthy with just 1 point and 1 rebound in just 8 minutes. He’s surely capable of more than that.

Emir Preldzic again showed how volatile a youngster can be. After performing great last week, he was totally off going 0/5 from the field. In 20 minutes, zero points is a big dropoff.

Uros Tripkovic again had a zero point showing. In a close game like that this could have made the difference in the wrong direction.

Mantas Kalnietis got 2 minutes of scrubtime and had 1 assist.

Because of the short list of players Baris Hersek got a little burn this week but he still is waiting for his first production.

Albert Moncasi again with a DNP, looks like this will be it for the rest of this season.

Sergio Llull drew a DNP this week, as did Anatoly Kashirov and sadly last weeks high riser Omri Casspi.
