Experienced American Sam Clancy (202-C-80) put on an amazing game in the last round for Olimpico LB and that's him to receive a Latinbasket.com Player of the Week award for round 7 (Second Stage). The 32-year old center had a double-double of 26 points and sixteen rebounds, while his team lost the game against Libertad S. (#5, 12-6) 74-79. Olimpico LB maintains the 4th position in Argentinian LigaA. They would have been even better if they hadn't lost a few games earlier in Second Stage. Olimpico LB will need to avoid more loses keep or improve their 13-8 record. Clancy turned to be Olimpico LB's top player in his first season with the team. University of Southern California graduate has very impressive stats this year. Clancy is in league's top in rebounds (2nd best: 11.4rpg) and averages solid 2.0bpg and 61.8% FGP.
The second most remarkable performance in last round's games was 34-year old American forward Gregory Lewis (200-F-78, agency: Dream Team Management) of La Union. Lewis impressed basketball fans with a double-double of 27 points and 12 rebounds. Bad luck as La Union was edged by the higher-ranked Wuber-Est.Bahia (#11, 8-10) 75-71. The game was between two teams which are definitely not main contenders for the title. La Union is still at the dead bottom 16th position. 17 lost games are too many comparing to just four victories La Union managed to get this Second Stage. Lewis is well-known by La Union fans and he already established his position as one of team's most reliable players. He belongs to the best scorers in the league with 17.5ppg (#6). He also registered 7.6 boards per game.
The third best performed player last round was Italian forward Juan Gutierrez (205-F/C-83) of Obras (#14). Gutierrez scored 19 points and grabbed fifteen rebounds (!!!). He was a key player of Obras, leading his team to a 87-64 easy win against the higher-ranked Argentino (#7, 11-9). The chances of Obras not to end season at such low position in the league, however are less than slim as they have already lost 12 games, recording just six victories. With bigger assistance of his teammates, Gutierrez could try to bring Obras' a little bit higher in the standings. Gutierrez has individually a great season in Argentina. After 17 games, he made it on the list of the league's leaders in points with 17.9ppg (2nd best) and rebounds with 9.4rpg (3rd best). He also has FGP: 52.6% and 3PT: 47.6%.

Aerochaco Boca Juniors Capital Feder (LigaA) is about to tab experienced 35-year old Argentinian international small forward Carlos Delfino (198-104kg-82) who played last time at Los Angeles Clippers in NBA. He has a double citizenship as he also holds Italian passport. He also spent pre-season at the Bucks in NBA that year. In 2003 Delfino was drafted by Detroit Pistons (NBA) in first round (25th overall). Among other achievements he played in the final of Russian A Superleague in 2009. Delfino received also Eurobasket.com All-Olympic Games Honorable Mention award back in 2012. He has been also a member of Argentinian international program for some years. Delfino has regularly played for Argentinian senior team since 2003 and previously for U21 National Team between 2000 and 2001. He also represented Argentina at the Olympic Games in London (United Kingdon) five years ago. Delfino's team got to the Semifinals and his stats at that event were 8 games: 15.3ppg, 3.8rpg, 1.6apg, FGP: 62.5%, 3PT: 35.2%, FT: 65.2%. Delfino is a very experienced player. And here thanks to pro basketball he experienced life in five different countries playing on three different continents. He is familiar with European, Latin American and of course North American leagues. Delfino has played previously professionally in Spain, NBA (Houston Rockets and Toronto Raptors), Italy (Reggio C. Vis and Fortituto Kontatto Bologna), Argentina (Olimpia Venado Tuerto Santa Fe and La Union) and Russia (Khimky). It may be one of last seasons in his extensive career, which he may end at Boca Jrs. Let's have closer look into Delfino's outlook:
Has shooting range of more than 8 metres, some which could allow him to play even the 2 position in future, but now he plays forward 3 or 4, because is yet enough strong to battle under tthe boards, but above all he has the typical mental skills of S.American players, never surrenders. Mostly a scorer and able to play both wing spots, but not a great shooter with range, yet. He is still very young and has a big upside.
