Round 8 MVP: Luka Božić (Zadar)
We have the MVP of the 8th round of the season and it is Zadar swingman Luka Božić, for the third time this season. Božić dominated the court in Dražen Petrović Arena in the game of his team against Cibona.
At the match of the 8th round between Cibona and Zadar, Luka Božić achieved 22 points, 10 rebounds, 3 assists, 1 steal and a valuation of 36 in less than 38 minutes spent on court. He had the second highest valuation of the round amongst all ABA League players, behind the most efficient Dragan Apić of FMP.
However, the fact that Božić did not use his quality just to rise to the top of the statistical categories, but also helped his team to beat Cibona, unlike the stats of Apić against Cedevita, is what earned him the MVP of the round honour.
Check out some fancy plays by Luka Božič from the game against Cibona:
