Once matchday 16 ended with the confrontation between Durán Maquinaria Ensino and Embutidos Pajariel Bembibre, it was time to confirm the shared MVP of Blanca Millán and Jovana Nogic. Two performances based on a great spectacular exterior success with which both led the victories of their teams.

Some figures that were key for SPAR Gran Canaria’s victory over Lointek Gernika Bizkaia (66-56) on a day in which the Galician shooting guard managed to more than make up for the absence of one of the most important players in the Gran Canaria team, Sika Koné .
For its part, Jovana Nogic continues to act as the main offensive reference of a Campus Promete that on that day beat BAXI Ferrol (86-55) thanks to a greater extent to the success of the Serbian forward from the triple. Going 5/13 from the perimeter, 4 of 5 shooting from 2 and 4 of 5 from the free throw line, Nogic went all the way to 27 points. This added to 7 assists, 3 recovered balls and 6 received fouls, place the outsider at a PIR of 28.
Blanca Millán is the second Spanish player who has achieved an MVP of the day. The first has been Irati Etxarri who has already achieved two distinctions this campaign. As for SPAR Gran Canaria, Millán is the second player on the team to add the achievement, behind a Sika Koné who has already been named the best of the day four times.
The Serbian foreigner also debuts as MVP after three years in a competition in which she has already established herself. The Promete Campus does celebrate its second distinction of the course, since Agostina Burani emerged as the best player of matchday 2.
