Experienced American Andrew Feeley (206-C-83) put on an amazing game in the last round for U Universitario and that's him to receive a Latinbasket.com Player of the Week award for round 12. The 33-year old center had a double-double of 23 points and thirteen rebounds, while his team crushed Sayago (#10, 5-6) with 20-point margin 93-73.
