Brandon Brown has been named Gameday 8 MVP in the 2019-20 Basketball Champions League, becoming the first Nizhny Novgorod player to claim this award in competition history.

The American point guard delivered a performance with an efficiency rating of 28 in Nizhny’s 75-72 win over Iberostar Tenerife on Tuesday. Brown scored a season-high 26 points, added 5 assists, 4 steals and 2 rebounds for the Russian side to hand Tenerife their first loss in this BCL campaign.

“Being named MVP is just the icing on the cake, the win is what really counts, especially against a team like Tenerife that was undefeated and number 1 in the rankings,” Brown told “Personal accolades are never the goal at the start, I am not going into the game hoping that I have a good game and maybe we can also win”.
