Torey named BEKO PBL MVP for months of October & November

We are proud to announce that Torey Thomas has been selected by the Beko PBLeague as the MVP of October and November. This is another Most Valuable Player recognition that Torey is receiving in 2011. Previously he’s been named the MVP of Polish League for both regular season and playoffs after a breakthrough season with Turow Zgorzelec.

The honor that Torey received for the games of November and October comes after some crucial games won by Spartak Primorie Vladivostok. The team started the season off strong winning (80-73) first time in 30 years against Unics Kazan (where Torey recorded 18 points, 11 assists, 6 rebounds, 2 steals in 30 minutes of action). Next up was an unfortunate loss  (74-81) at home against Krasnie-Krylia Samara but again statistically Torey shined with 21 points, 8 rebounds, 4 steals in 31 minutes on the court.

I am both surprised and excited about receiving this award for October and November. It’s great to be recognized by the league but the best feeling is to have our team winning and proving the doubters that we are strongly motivated and will do everything to win for our fans. I know that we can continue to work hard and play strong throughout the rest of this season.

In game three of the season Spartak got a huge win (88-89) in an overtime thriller on the road at Nizhny Novogorod. Once again Torey scored in double figures with 15 points as he added 5 assists and 2 steals into the mix. Final game of November marked a clash between two former players of Turow Zgorzlec. Torey’s Spartak was playing Thomas Kelati’s Khimki Moscow Region on the road. This game was a huge upset and a great emotional win (82-95) for Spartak Primorie. Torey recorded his highest scoring game in Russia with 28 points (in 20 minutes) and iced the game with crucial free throws in the final minutes.
