He had a double-double by scoring 22 points and getting 11 rebounds in 35 minutes; quite an impressive performance considering it's only Amigo's third season in pro basketball. It was DEAC's third consecutive loss in a row. This year Amigo has relatively solid stats: 11.5ppg and 5.9rpg in 26 games. He is a naturalized American.

   #13. Former international point guard Juan Pablo Cantero (184-82, currently plays in Portugal) couldn't help Benfica in their game against FC Porto in the Portuguese LPB.

He used to play for the Argentinian national team nine years ago.

   #14.

Despite Delfino's good performance Consultinvest BO was badly defeated 94-78 in Cagliari by the much lower-ranked (#13) Cagliari DA in the East group. He scored 10 points in 19 minutes. Delfino has averaged so far 7.0ppg, 2.3rpg, 1.7apg and 1.3spg in six games. He used to play for the Argentinian national team three years ago.

Dolomiti Energia Trento (15-11) is placed sixth in the Serie A. It was his team's third consecutive victory in a row. There are only four games left until the end of the Regular Season.

   #6. Bruno Cerella (194-G/F-86, also represented by Players Group, currently plays in Italy) was not able to secure a victory for Umana Venezia in their game against Happy Casa BR in the Italian Serie A.
