Yates scored only 4 points and grabbed 4 rebounds in 11 minutes. Benetton Fribourg Olympic (13-2) is placed first in the LNA. There are only three games left until the end of the Regular Season. So now every game will be critical. This year Yates has relatively solid stats: 12.4ppg, 5.7rpg and 2.4apg in the 15 games. He is a naturalized American. Yates used to play for the Jamaican national team three years ago.

   #1. Experienced Corey Williams (191-G-77, college: Alabama St., currently plays in Lebanon), who plays in the Lebanese Division A could not help Bejjeh (4-8) in their last game on Wednesday. Despite his very good performance Bejjeh was crushed 107-85 on the road by the higher-ranked Champville (#3). Williams was the top scorer with 28 points. He also added 5 rebounds and 9 assists. The Regular Season already ended. Williams belongs to league's top scorers (ranked #7) and also on the list of most steals (first place). He has individually a very good season with high stats. Williams averages: 23.4ppg, 7.2rpg, 5.3apg and 2.8spg. He is a naturalized American.

   #2.

Gallimore scored 12 points and added 4 passes in 31 minutes. BC Timisoara (13-5) is placed third in the Liga Nationala. His team will play only one more game in the Regular Season.
