Nicolas Minnerath put on an unforgettable performance for Avtador Saratov on Wednesday night in Israel and was named MVP of Day 5 in the FIBA Champions League.
The 28-year-old American went into the Basketball Champions League clash at Maccabi Rand Media averaging 19.5 points per game but far exceeded that, dunking and shooting his way to a competition high of 39 points in a 98-74 victory for his club. He also buried 5 of 9 shots from the arc.
Adding to the 8 rebounds that he grabbed and the 2 assists that he dished out, the Saratov sensation finished with an eye-popping efficiency of 40.
