Walter Hodge
Walter Hodge
   #1. This week's number one is an international point guard Walter Hodge (183-86, college: Florida, currently plays in Eurocup), who plays in Poland. He could not help Stelmet ZG (1-2) in their last game on Wednesday. Despite Hodge's good performance the third-placed Stelmet ZG was badly defeated 89-69 at home by the second-ranked Spartak St.Petersburg in the group K of Eurocup. He was the second best scorer with 13 points. Hodge also added 6 assists. There are only three games left until the end of the Eurocup Top 16. So now every game will be critical. Hodge is currently first on the list of top scorers. He has individually a very good season with high stats. Hodge averages: 20.6ppg, 1.7rpg, 5.2apg, 2FGP: 53.8%, 3FGP: 54.3%(19-35).

   #2. Second place goes to former international center Frank Elegar (208-86, college: Drexel, currently plays in Baltic League). He led his Estonian team Kalev/Cramo to an easy victory against the closely-ranked Jelgava (0-2) crushing them 105-65 in the Baltic League on Wednesday night. Elegar had a double-double by scoring 18 points and getting 11 rebounds. He also added 3 blocks in 27 minutes. BC Kalev/Cramo Tallinn (2-0) is placed second in group F. There are only four games left until the end of the Baltic League Top 16. So now every game is very crucial. Elegar has relatively good stats this year: 13.1ppg, 8.7rpg, 1.4bpg, 1.3spg, 2FGP: 60.3%(35-58) and FT: 55.0% in the seven games he played so far.

He recorded a double-double by scoring 21 points and getting 11 rebounds. Washington also added 3 blocks; quite an impressive performance considering it's only his second season in pro basketball. It was the game of the round between two top 4 ranked teams. Svendborg Rabbits (18-2) is placed first in the Ligaen. It was his team's third consecutive victory in a row.
