Phillip is in league's top in and averages impressive 53.2% FGP.
The second best player in last round's games was 32-year old American Sam Clancy (202-C-80) of Olimpico LB. Clancy had a very good evening with a double-double of 18 points and 16 rebounds. Of course he lead Olimpico LB to another comfortable win outscoring the lower-ranked Obras (#14, 5-12) 90-70. This victory allowed Olimpico LB to move up to 3rd position in the standings. 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). Mikulas got into 30-points club by scoring exactly 30 points in the last round. He went also for eight rebounds . 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. He also has 6.9rpg and FGP: 52.8%.
