Hapoel Jerusalem’s TaShawn Thomas has been named Gameday 13 MVP, becoming the first player in the 2019-20 Basketball Champions League season to claim the award twice.

Per championsleague.basketball:

Thomas earned the distinction for the first-ever time in his career three weeks previously, for this stellar performance on Gameday 10 that was rated at 32 in terms of efficiency.

The 26-year-old American managed somehow to raise the bar even higher on Wednesday. Thomas paved the way for Hapoel’s 96-91 dramatic win over San Pablo Burgos by registering a BCL career-high efficiency rating of 38 as he finished with a BCL career-high 27 points and a season-high 4 blocks, adding 6 rebounds and 4 assists.

“It feels great to have won MVP twice this season, I didn’t get any last year or the year before (Thomas played in the BCL with UNET Holon in the 2018-19 season). It’s just an honor to be playing some great basketball on a great team,” the two-time weekly MVP told championsleague.basketball.
