One of the most dominant early-season performers in recent Turkish Airlines EuroLeague history, Sasha Vezenkov of Olympiacos Piraeus, is Euroleague Basketball's choice for MVP of November. Vezenkov posted an average performance index rating of 29.4 during November, which was 10.0 higher than the next-ranked player in the competition. His scoring average of 19. points per game for the month came on stellar 68.5% two-point and 91.3% free-throw shooting. He also posted 7.8 rebounds, 3.6 assists and 1.8 steals over five games. His efforts led Olympiacos to a 3-2 mark during November and left the Reds among a group of four teams tied for second place with 7-3 records.
The MVP of the Month honor is now in its 18th season. The winner is named by Euroleague Basketball based on his and his team's performance during the month in question. It was the second monthly MVP award for the 27-year-old forward and follows on Vezenkov's first such honor last February, when he became the first Olympiacos player in almost seven years to be chosen MVP of the Month.
