Naturalized Spanish guard Gustavo Barrera (194-G-85) put on an amazing game in the last round for Hebraica, receiving a Eurobasket.com Player of the Week award for round 27. The 27-year old player was the main contributor (25 points, four rebounds and nine assists) to his team's victory, helping them to beat Bohemios (#8, 14-13) 98-88. Hebraica is placed at 4th position in Spanish LUB. They would have been even better if they hadn't lost a few games earlier this season. Hebraica will need more victories to improve their 18-9 record. In the team's last game Barrera had a remarkable 62.5% from 2-point range. It's his second year at Hebraica and it's hard to imagine this team without him. Gustavo Barrera has solid league stats. He is league's best passer with 7.4apg. Barrera is in league's top in and averages impressive 55.6% FGP.
The second best player in last round's games was 31-year old American Brian Woodward (191-G-81) of Welcome. Woodward had a very good evening with 35 points, 6 rebounds and 3 assists. Bad luck as Welcome lost that game 73-80 to slightly higher-ranked Cordon (#12, 10-16). The game was between two teams which are definitely not main contenders for the title. Welcome keeps 13th position. His team is not often considered as one of the league's best with a mere 9-17 record. Woodward is a newcomer at Welcome, but is already one of team's top players.
Third on the list of top players last round was American forward Christopher Hayes (206-F-87) of Aguada (#6). Hayes showcased his all-around game by recording 20 points, twelve rebounds (!!!) and four assists in the last round. Despite Hayes' great performance Aguada lost 85-89 to the lower-ranked Defensor (#9, 13-13). But his team cannot count on just a single player as he also needs help of the other teammates. The last thing Aguada needs is to lose another game like this one. They lose more and more distance to the top teams. Their record is 16 victories and 11 lost games. Hayes has a very solid season. In 26 games in Uruguay he scored 16.3ppg. He also has 9.0rpg and FGP: 52.9%. Hayes attended one of camps at Eurobasket Summer League on his way to pro basketball.
