At the match of the 8th round between Mornar and Igokea, Derek Needham achieved 22 points, 5 rebounds, 5 assists, a steal and a valuation of 30 in 35 minutes spent on court. He had the highest valuation this round amongst all ABA League players that stepped on the floor.

However, fact that Needham did not use his quality just to rise on the top of the statistical categories, but also helped his team to beat Igokea, is what earned him the MVP of the round honours.
