The Whites' youth teamer won the Rising Star Trophy for the second consecutive year.
Luka Doncic continues to scoop both prizes and praise. The Real Madrid youth teamer was chosen unanimously by coaches in the Euroleague as the winner of the Rising Star Trophy, which is given to the best player in the competition under the age of 22. The madridista guard has won the MVP award four times in the Regular Season, something which is unrivalled. He was the best player in the month of October.

In the Rising Star ranks he beat Alberto Abalde (Valencia Basket), Mathias Lessort (Estrella Roja), Jonah Bolden (Maccabi) and Lucas Vildoza (Baskonia). Doncic has won it for the second year in a row, following on from the madridista Nikola Mirotic (in 2011 and 2012). Rudy (in 2007 with Joventut) is the other Whites player to have won the award. The Slovenian has managed the following numbers this year: 16.1 points, 4.4 assists and 21.8 PIR, higher than any other Euroleague player.
