   #1. This week's number one is an experienced international forward Michael Hicks (196-76, college: Texas A&M-CC, currently plays in Uruguay).

Hicks scored 18 points, grabbed 4 rebounds and dished 4 assists in 23 minutes on the court. It was the game of the round between two top 3 ranked teams in group Promocional 1. Hebraica Macabi Montevideo (6-3) is placed third. His team will play only one more game in the Second Stage. And that game will be critical. Hicks has individually a very good year with high stats. He averages: 17.5ppg, 4.3rpg, 2.6apg, 1.4spg, 2FGP: 46.6%, 3FGP: 42.2% and FT: 80.2% in 20 games he played so far.
