American Anthony Johnson (203-F-88) had a great game in the last round for league's second-best Bigua and that's him to receive a Eurobasket.com Player of the Week award for round 19. The 24-year old forward had the game-high 28 points adding nine rebounds for Bigua in his team's victory, helping them to crush Tabare (#12, 7-12) with 24-point margin 102-78. Bigua maintains the 2nd position in Uruguayan LUB. They would have been even better if they hadn't lost a few games earlier this season. Bigua will need more victories to improve their 15-4 record. Johnson turned to be Bigua's top player in his first season with the team. Fairfield University graduate has very impressive stats this year. Johnson is in league's top in points (9th best: 18.8ppg), rebounds (7th best: 9.7rpg) and averages solid 1.4bpg and 55.7% FGP.
The second most remarkable performance in last round's games was 28-year old American guard Marcus Elliott (191-G-84) of Olimpia. Elliott impressed basketball fans with a double-double of 26 points and 12 rebounds. It was enough for Olimpia to edge the higher-ranked Un.Atletica (#3, 14-5) by 2 points 80-78. Olimpia's 7th position in the standings has not changed. His team lost some distance to top teams. But 10-8 record is not bad and everything may still change. Elliott is a newcomer at Olimpia and it seems he did not have too much trouble to become one of team's leaders.
The third best performed player last round was American Stanley Jones (208-C-86, agency: Gamble Sports Management) of Sayago (#9). Jones scored 25 points and grabbed ten rebounds. He was a key player of Sayago, leading his team to a 90-81 win against the lower-ranked Larre Borges (#16, 4-15). The chances of Sayago ranking at the top of the league, however are very questionable as they have already lost 11 games, recording just eight victories. With bigger assistance of his teammates, Jones could help Sayago to bring them higher in the standings. Jones has a very solid season. In 16 games in Uruguay he scored 15.3ppg.
