Yorman Polas Bartolo
Yorman Polas Bartolo
   #1. This week's number one is former international swingman Yorman Polas Bartolo (192-85, currently plays in Germany). He could not help Telekom Baskets (9-8) to beat Brose Baskets (16-1). Bartolo scored 6 points and grabbed 7 rebounds. Telekom Baskets was defeated 85-70 on the road by the second-ranked Brose Baskets. It's Bartolo's first season with the team. This year he averages: 6.2ppg, 3.6rpg, 1.6apg, 1.2spg, 2FGP: 66.7%(42-63), 3FGP: 13.6% and FT: 46.4%. Bartolo has a dual citizenship: Cuban and German.

   #2. Second place goes to former international point guard Taylor Garcia (182-87, currently plays in Spain). He led Quintanar to a 1-point victory against the ninth-ranked Azuqueca (8-6) 80-79 in the Spanish EBA (fourth division) last Saturday. Garcia scored 16 points, made 5 passes and 4 steals in 40 minutes. Basket Globalcaja Quintanar (8-4) is placed sixth in Group B. It was his team's third consecutive victory in a row. They will play only one more game in the Regular Season. And that game will be critical. Garcia has individually a very good year with high stats. He averages: 15.1ppg, 2.9rpg, 3.8apg, 1.6spg, 2FGP: 50.8%, 3FGP: 35.7% and FT: 87.5% in 12 games he played so far. Garcia played for the Cuban national team in 2009.

Silvestre was MVP of the game. He scored 15 points and grabbed 9 rebounds. Nautico KIA Tenerife (9-3) is placed second in Group B. Silvestre's team will play only one more game in the Regular Season.

CEZ Basketball Nymburk (8-3) is placed third in group A. It was his team's fifth consecutive victory in a row. There are only three games left until the end of the Basketball Champions League Regular Season. So now every game will be critical.

It was the game of the round between two top 4 ranked teams. Kongsberg Miners (14-2) is placed first in the BLNO. It was his team's sixth consecutive victory in a row. Ferrales has individually a very good year with high stats. He averages: 24.4ppg, 5.3rpg, 5.4apg and 1.8spg in 16 games. Ferrales has a dual citizenship: Cuban and American.
