   #1. This week's number one is former international point guard Ian Young (191-81, college: Auburn, currently plays in Mexico), who plays in the Mexican LNBP (second division). He could not help Lechugueros (12-26) in their last game on Thursday. Despite Young's very good performance Lechugueros was crushed 105-61 at home by the second-ranked Halcones Rojos. He was the top scorer with 26 points. Young also added 5 assists (made all of his six free throws). There are only two games left until the end of the Regular Season. So now every game will be critical. Young belongs to league's top scorers (ranked #6) and also on the list of best passers (third place). He has individually a very good season with high stats. Young averages: 22.6ppg, 2.3rpg, 6.1apg, 1.2spg, 2FGP: 38.0%, 3FGP: 39.9% and FT: 76.7%. He is a naturalized American. Young played for the Trinidad and Tobago senior national team three years ago. Strangely he has never played in Trinidad and Tobago.
