   #2. Experienced Yudniel Perez (189-G-84, agency: Paris Global Sports, currently plays in Puerto Rico) could not help one of league's weakest teams Atleticos in their last game on Monday.

Pineiro scored 8 points and had 3 steals in 18 minutes. Brujos lost 90-94 in Mayaguez to the higher-ranked (#9) Indios. But the season just started, so everything may happen. This year Pineiro's overall stats are: 3.5ppg, 1.5rpg and 1.8apg in six games.

Sigfredo Casero-Ortiz (185-G-97, currently plays in Belgium) managed to help Proximus Spirou Charleroi in a victory against the league outsider Liege Basket 80-76 in the Belgian Euromillions League last Tuesday.
