   #1. This week's number one is former international power forward Julius Ashby (205-82, college: Colorado, currently plays in Japan). Ashby led Fukuoka Rizing to a victory over the third-ranked Shimane Magic (16-8) 76-68 in the Japanese BJ League last Sunday. He was MVP of the game. Ashby recorded a double-double by scoring 20 points and getting 11 rebounds. He also added 5 blocks. Fukuoka Rizing (16-8) is placed fourth in Western group. It's Ashby's first season with the team.

Ian Young
   #2. Second place goes to 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 (12-28) in their last game. Despite Young's very good performance Lechugueros was crushed 90-68 on the road by the much higher-ranked (#3) Soles. He was the top scorer with 27 points. Young also added 4 passes (made all of his ten free throws !!!) in 31 minutes. It was Lechugueros' sixth consecutive loss in a row. 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 very impressive stats this year: 22.4ppg, 2.5rpg, 6.0apg, 1.2spg, 2FGP: 37.4% and FT: 77.8% in the 19 games he played so far. Young is a naturalized American.

It was the game of the round between two top 4 ranked teams. Anyang KGC (15-15) is placed fourth in the KBL. Trim's overall stats this season are: 5.5ppg, 4.2rpg, 2FGP: 67.7%(65-96) and FT: 54.7%.
