At the match of the 19th round between Igokea and Mornar, Derek Needham achieved 26 points, 5 rebounds, 7 assists, 1 steal and a valuation of 29 in less than 34 minutes spent on court.

He had the second highest valuation of the round, alongside Robert Rikić and behind Luka Žorić (38). However, the fact that Needham did not use his quality just to rise near the top of the statistical categories, but also helped his team to beat Igokea, unlike Rikić and Žorić, which were defeated, is what earned him the MVP of the round honour.
