   #1. This week's number one is former international center Roy Hibbert (218-86, college: Georgetown, currently plays in NBA).

He had a double-double by scoring 20 points and getting 15 rebounds. Hibbert also added 5 blocks in 30 minutes on the court. The Indiana Pacers have 21-14 record this season. It's Hibbert's fifth year with the team. He belongs to league's best blockers and is ranked #3 with 2.7bpg. Hibbert also averaged so far 9.7ppg, 8.4rpg, 1.5apg, 2FGP: 40.2% and FT: 66.2% in the 35 games he played so far. He is a naturalized American.

Yates was the top scorer with 25 points. He also added 6 rebounds in 27 minutes. They ended the series of eleven consecutive victories. There are only four games left until the end of the Regular Season. So now every game will be critical.
