Bojan Bogdanovic Co-MVP for Euroleague for the Week ... The other Co-MVP?

New, comment

Bojan Bogdanovic, the Euro-Stash who's been lighting up the Euroleague and Turkish League the last couple of weeks, was named the co-MVP of the European-wide league for the week. The other co-MVP? Marcus Williams, the Nets first rounder in 2006, who plays for Unicaja of Spain. Since leaving the Nets, Williams, now 27, has played for the Warriors and Grizzlies in the NBA as well as for teams in Puerto Rico, Russia and Spain.

Here's what the Euroleague posted in announcing the co-MVP for the week...

Bogdanovic tallied 26 points, coming on 5 of 8 two-point shots, 2 of 6 from downtown and a perfect 10 for 10 from the free throw line. He also recorded 4 rebounds, 2 assists and 2 steals before fouling out for his index of 27. Williams had 28 points as Unicaja downed CSKA in Moscow 81-94 on Friday to snap a three-game losing streak. It was a great all-around shooting performance for Williams, who made 3 of 5 from inside the arc, 6 of 12 from downtown and 4 of 5 from the charity stripe.
