Zimbabwe’s French-based basketball star, Vitalis Chikoko, produced a top drawer performance as Metropolitans 92 overcame Roanne 86-83 on Saturday.

The top performance by Chikoko followed yet another impressive display which saw the Zimbabwean basketball star being handed the most valuable player accolade in Metropolitans 101-97 victory over Boulazac.

On Saturday, Chikoko scored 20 points, managing 17 rebounds. The Zimbabwean star has built himself a reputation as one of the top players in the French Pro A League and was selected in an All-star team at the end of last season.

Before his switch from Pau Lacque Orthez to Metropolitans, Chikoko was among the leading players and has maintained his form, despite moving to another team.

Chikoko is arguably Zimbabwe’s most accomplished basketball player abroad having travelled across Europe and played for top teams in Germany, Italy and France.
