Before playing in the LNB Playoffs and then heading to the NBA, Victor Wembanyama keeps on dominating the LNB Regular Season, being named MVP of the Month for March. It’s the second time the 19-year-old wins this award following November 2022.

In March, Victor Wembanyama had three straight 15+ point double-double performances against ASVEL, Le Portel, and Le Mans, and he averaged 18.8 points and 3.4 blocks throughout the whole month. With 32% of picks from the fans, he overcame Nando De Colo (28%), Ronald March (22%), and Jacques Alingue (18%).

The most likely #1 pick in the 2023 NBA Draft is averaging 21.3 points and 9.9 rebounds per game, shooting 54.7% from two in his first (and last) year with Boulogne-Levallois Metropolitans 92, dragging the team to the 2nd position in the standings with a 19-9 record, behind only AS Monaco.

Here’s the whole list of LNB MVP of the Month winners:

  • October: Matt Morgan (Le Mans)
