Experienced American Andy Panko (203-F-77, agency: BeoBasket) put on an amazing game in the last round for league's leader Fuerza Regia and that's him to receive a Latinbasket.com LNBP Player of the Week award for round 27. The 39-year old forward had the game-high 34 points adding six rebounds and two assists for Fuerza Regia in his team's victory, helping them to outclass Toros (#3, 16-11) with 33-point margin 92-59. The game was between two of the league's top four teams. It allowed Fuerza Regia to consolidate first place in the Mexican LNBP. Fuerza Regia has a very good season and are considered to have a run for the championship title. They improved their record to 27-1. In the team's last game Panko had a remarkable 66.7% from 2-point range and got six three-pointers out of 7 attempts. He turned to be Fuerza Regia's top player in his first season with the team. Andy Panko averages this season 17.4ppg.
The second most remarkable performance in last round's games was -year old Canadian forward Grandy Glaze (204-F) of Correcaminos. Glaze impressed basketball fans with a double-double of 25 points and 14 rebounds. Bad luck as Correcaminos lost that game 89-101 to the higher-ranked Barreteros (#6, 11-16). Correcaminos are still at the very bottom. 21 lost games are too many comparing to just six victories Correcaminos managed to get this year. Glaze is a newcomer at Correcaminos and it seems he did not have too much trouble to become one of team's leaders.
The third best performed player last round was American Paul Marigney (192-G-82) of Barreteros (#6). Marigney showcased his all-around game by recording 28 points, eight rebounds and five assists in the last round. He was a key player of Barreteros, leading his team to a 101-89 win against the lower-ranked Correcaminos (#10, 6-21). The chances of Barreteros ranking at the top of the league, however are very questionable as they have already lost 16 games, recording just eleven victories. With bigger assistance of his teammates, Marigney could help Barreteros to bring them higher in the standings. Marigney has a very solid season. In 27 games in Mexico he scored 17.2ppg. He also has 5.7rpg, 4.0apg, FGP: 53.2% and 3PT: 42.7%.
