Samantha Brincat, also from Hibernians also won her second award this season, and her fourth in her career, propelling Hibernians to the Women's Championship and also being declared the Most Valuable Player (MVP) of the Women's Final playoff series.

Luxol's Vukassin Jandric won the award for the BOV Amateur League. Also, his second individual award this season, Jandric won his first award in October. Hailing from Serbia, his high scoring average, especially from the distance, helped Luxol to reach the semi-finals in the BOV Men's amateur league.
