29-year old power forward Juan Gutierrez (205-F/C-83) had a great game in the last round for Obras and receives a Latinbasket.com Player of the Week award for round 19 (Second Stage).

Obras is currently ranked second from the bottom. But it was their 20th lost game this season out of 29 games.

He was a key player of Libertad S., leading his team to a 87-83 win against the lower-ranked Wuber-Est.Bahia (#12, 12-16).
