Jaylon Brown was named 7DAYS EuroCup Regular Season Round 12 MVP, as announced Thursday.

Brown, 27, registered 32 points behind 9/19 field goals leading the Hamburg Towers past MoraBanc Andorra Wednesday. The Evansville product earned his first weekly distinction in EuroCup.

Per EuroLeagueBasketball.net: “With his team depleted, trailing and in need of an offensive spark, Hamburg Towers guard Jaylon Brown stepped up and delivered in his team’s 78-85 win at MoraBanc Andorra on Wednesday night, earning his first MVP of the Round honor in the process.

Brown netted 32 points, the most by a Hamburg player in the team’s first season in the competition, while he also matched the EuroCup’s season high with 7 three-pointers made on 15 attempts. Brown also went 2-for-4 on two-pointers and 7-for-9 from the free throw line. He added 6 assists, 4 rebounds and 3 steals, while drawing 7 fouls in 39 minutes on the floor. His resulting performance index rating of 34 was the highest among all players on winning teams in Round 12. Virtus Segafredo Bologna center Mam Jaiteh also had a PIR of 34, but that came in his team’s loss against Buducnost VOLI Podgorica. Jaiteh collected 19 points plus 12 rebounds, 3 blocks, 1 assist and 1 steal. The next-best PIR, 33, belonged to Will Cummings of Boulogne Metropolitans 92, who flirted with a triple-double, collecting 20 points, 9 assists and 9 rebounds in his team’s 95-92 win over his former team, Lokomotiv Kuban Krasnodar. Rounding out the list of this round’s top performers were four players matching PIRs of 30 each: Yogi Ferrell of Cedevita Olimpija Ljubljana, Mathias Lessort of Partizan NIS Belgrade, Travis Trice of Slask Wroclaw and Martynas Echodas of Umana Reyer Venice.”

Zach Auguste in dunking mode for Cedevita Olimpija ranked first in the Top 10 Plays of Round 12.
