American forward Anthony Johnson (203-F-88) put on an amazing game in the last round for Bigua, receiving a Eurobasket.com Player of the Week award for round 2 (Second Stage). The 24-year old player had a double-double of 25 points and 12 rebounds, while his team beat Aguada (#7, 0-2), Second Stage botton-ranked team 106-94. Bigua maintains the 5th position in Uruguayan LUB. Bigua is a typical solid league team placed somewhere in the middle or a little bit lower in the standings. But it was their 1st lost game this season out of 2 games. Johnson turned to be Bigua's top player in his first season with the team. Former Fairfield University star has very solid stats this year. Johnson is in league's top in points (9th best: 21.2ppg), rebounds (9th best: 10.0rpg) and averages impressive 1.4bpg and 59.5% FGP.
The second best player in last round's games was 35-year old Claudio Charquero (207-C-77) of Lagomar. Charquero had a very good evening with a double-double of 22 points and 17 rebounds. It was enough for Lagomar to edge Maldonado (0-2) 87-85. The Second Stage is still at the very beginning and this victory may help a lot. Let's wait for the next round. Charquero is a newcomer at Lagomar, but is already one of team's top players.
Third on the list of top players last round was Italian guard Leandro Garcia Morales (186-G-80) of Aguada (#7). Garcia Morales got into 30-points club by scoring 41 points in the last round. He went also for five rebounds and seven assists. Despite Garcia Morales' great performance Aguada lost 94-106 to Bigua (#5, 1-1). But his team cannot count on just a single shooter as he also needs help of the other teammates. Aguada can only dream about fighting for top spots in Serie 1. They have awful Second Stage losing so far all 2 games. Too bad for Garcia Morales he does not play for a better team. But maybe if he did, his season stats would not be that high. Garcia Morales has a very solid season. In 24 games in Uruguay he scored 27.3ppg. He also has 7.0rpg, 5.5apg, FGP: 56.4% and 3PT: 44.5%.
