Alexey Shved, 7Days EuroCup MVP for season 2016/2017
27 march 2017
Shved had one of the most dominant individual seasons ever in the EuroCup, finishing as the only player in competition history to average at least 22 points, 5 assists and 4 rebounds. Shved's league-leading 22.1 points per game was also the highest scoring average among qualified EuroCup players this decade, and the fifth-most in competition history for any player with at least 10 games in a season. Congrats!
Shved scored at least 15 points in each of the 14 games he played for Khimki. Remarkably, for a player who ranked fourth in minutes played, with more than 31 per contest, Shved also led the EuroCup with 28.3 points prorated over 40 minutes. Additionally, Shved also led the EuroCup in performance index rating (22 per game) and three-pointers made (3.4) while also ranking sixth in average assists (5.2). Naturally, he led Khimki in all those categories as the team reached EuroCup quarterfinals, and was also second on the team with averages of 4 rebounds and 1.2 steals.
