   #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 (12-28) in their last game. Despite Young's very good performance Lechugueros lost 82-90 at home to the much higher-ranked (#5) Panteras. He was the top scorer with 32 points. Young also added 6 assists in 40 minutes on the court. It was Lechugueros' sixth consecutive loss in a row. Young is ranked sixth on the list of the top scorers in the league and also on the list of best passers (third place). He has individually a very good year with high stats. Young averages: 22.3ppg, 2.3rpg, 5.6apg, 1.1spg, 2FGP: 36.7%, 3FGP: 39.1% and FT: 79.4% in the 23 games he played so far. 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.
