His team's 13-7 record is not bad at all. Clancy is a newcomer at Olimpico LB, but is already one of team's top players.
Third on the list of top players last round was former international forward Gabriel Mikulas (200-F-80, agency: Interperformances) of Libertad S. (#5).

Despite Mikulas' great performance Libertad S. lost 94-98 to the lower-ranked Union Progr. (#13, 7-11). But his team cannot count on just a single shooter as he also needs help of the other teammates. The last thing Libertad S. needs is to lose another game like this one. They lose more and more distance to the top teams. Their record is 11 victories and 6 lost games. Mikulas has a very solid season. In 17 games in Argentina he scored 14.7ppg.
