Recieved all the scoresheets through from the BUCS Men’s Basketball Final 8′s yesterday and took it upon myself to put through a leading scorers table (as that is the only stat that is available!) and top performances of the weekend. If you have any individual enquiries about players, drop a comment and I’ll get back to you!

- There were only two players who broke the 20 point mark in every game they played, Leed Metropolitan’s Adrian Fenyn (39, 21, 28) and London Metropolitan’s Arturo Noha (22, 21, 24)
- The only player to break the 30 point barrier more than once was Oxford’s Steven Danley, with 36 vs Leeds Met and 30 vs Worcester.
- There is not one British player in the top 5 scorers (though 5 through 10 are all British), and only 2 in the top ten individual performances.
- Modestas Sidlaukas if not for being injured early into his second game and then not playing again, would have likely been in the top 5 after dropping 25 in his first game, and 8 in the limited minutes he played before getting injured.
- Looking over individual player averages, Leeds Met really are not deep outside of their starting 5.
- No surprise to see Adrian Fenyn number one after his tear this season in EBL D1.
- Durham have the most balanced scoring out of any of the teams, with a number of players hitting double digits over the weekend.
- Nils Steuber was on no-ones radar going in to the Final 8′s and surprised a lot of people.
- Worcester’s Kastytis Normantas and Loughborough’s Dave Holland were tied with the most three’s in a game over the weekend, both hitting 6 in separate performances.
- There was a lot of poor free throw shooting over the Final 8′s. Danley could have had 40+ vs Leeds Met after missing 6, whilst a number of other players missed some crucial free throws (Zoltan Supola missed 3 straight in the closing minutes of the final, Roy Owen missed 4 in crunch time of one of Worcester’s games).
