Jasiel Rivero
Jasiel Rivero
   #1. This week's number one is an international power forward Jasiel Rivero (204-93, agency: Pro Sports, currently plays in Argentina). He led Boca Juniors to a surprising victory over the league leader Quimsa (24-6) 94-85 in the Argentinian La Liga in Wednesday night's game. Rivero was MVP of the game. He recorded 35 points (!!!) and grabbed 5 rebounds in 41 minutes on the court. Boca Juniors (14-14) is placed tenth in the La Liga. It's Rivero's first season with the team. Rivero has individually a very good year with high stats. He averages: 18.7ppg, 5.3rpg, 1.4apg, 1.1spg, 2FGP: 58.3%(161-276), 3FGP: 41.4% and FT: 67.5% in 28 games he played so far. Rivero is currently a member of the Cuban senior national team.

He was the major contributor in Cariduros' victory against the league outsider Indios (5-9) 106-98 in the Puerto Rican BSN last Tuesday. Ramos had a double-double by scoring 19 points and getting 10 rebounds in 31 minutes. Cariduros de Fajardo (8-8) is placed fifth in the BSN. It was his team's third consecutive victory in a row.

Bartolo could not help Telekom Baskets (15-12) in their last game on Saturday. Despite his good performance Telekom Baskets was crushed 88-67 on the road by the one of league's weakest teams Eisbaeren Bremerhaven (#17). Bartolo was the top scorer with 13 points. Bartolo's total stats this season are: 9.6ppg, 4.0rpg, 2.0apg, 2FGP: 55.0%(71-129), 3FGP: 28.6% and FT: 68.1%. He has a dual citizenship: Cuban and German.

He scored 11 points, grabbed 7 rebounds and dished 3 assists in 22 minutes. Gimnasia y Esgrima Comodoro Rivadavia (19-11) is placed third in the La Liga.

Center Javier Justiz (205-92, also represented by Pro Sports, currently plays in Spain) was not able to secure a victory for Zaragoza (13-13) in their game against FC Barcelona (22-4) in the Spanish Liga Endesa. He cannot count Saturday's game as one of the best ones. Justiz scored only 2 points and grabbed 4 rebounds in 19 minutes. Zaragoza lost 86-91 at home to the leading FC Barcelona. Justiz has averaged so far 5.6ppg and 3.6rpg in 27 games. He is an international player who is currently on the senior Cuban National Team roster.

Grismay Paumier
   #7.

Paumier scored 5 points, grabbed 14 rebounds and dished 3 assists. Saint Chamond Basket Valle du Gier (17-9) is placed fifth in the ProB. Paumier has averaged so far 9.6ppg, 5.2rpg and 1.2bpg. He used to play for the Cuban national team ten years ago.

Georvys Elias
Georvys Elias
   #8. Forward Georvys Elias (199-81, currently plays in Spain) couldn't help Daimiel (7-20) in their game against Pozuelo (10-17) in the Spanish EBA (fourth division), despite his good performance last Sunday. Elias scored 12 points, grabbed 7 boards, passed 4 assists and added 4 steals in 30 minutes. But the 14th-placed Daimiel (7-20) was edged 91-89 on their home court in Daimiel by the higher-ranked (#12) Pozuelo in the Group B. There are only two games left until the end of the Regular Season. So now every game will be critical. Elias has relatively good stats this year: 10.6ppg, 6.9rpg, 1.6apg and 1.1spg in 14 games. He used to play for the Cuban national team back in 2009.


The list of other players, who all have Cuban passport but never been selected to any of Cuban national teams:

   #1. Howard Sant-Roos (200-F-91, currently plays in Greece). He could not help AEK (17-7) to beat Panionios (9-12). Sant-Roos scored 7 points, had 5 rebounds and made 2 blocks. AEK was defeated 78-74 in a derby game by the lower-ranked Panionios (#7). There are only two games left until the end of the Regular Season. So now every game will be critical. Sant-Roos' overall stats this season are: 6.6ppg, 4.2rpg, 2.5apg and 1.2spg.

   #2. Ismael Romero (203-C-91, currently plays in Mexico) was not able to help Capitanes (26-13) in their last game. Despite his very good performance the first-placed Capitanes (26-13) lost 79-88 at home to the leading Fuerza Regia in the South group. Romero was the top scorer with 22 points. He also added 9 rebounds in 31 minutes. Romero has individually a very good year with high stats. He averages: 17.7ppg, 7.9rpg, 1.6apg and 1.4spg in 48 games he played so far.

   #3. Adrian Diaz (209-F/C-93, college: FIU, currently plays in Finland) was the major contributor in a Joensuun Kataja's victory against one of league's weakest teams Ura Basket (9-30) crushing them 112-87 in the Finnish Korisliiga in Saturday night's game. He scored 25 points and blocked 3 shots; quite an impressive performance considering it's only Diaz's third season in pro basketball. Joensuun Kataja Basket (23-16) is placed fourth in the Korisliiga. It was his team's third consecutive victory in a row. They will play only one more game in the Regular Season. And now that game is very crucial. Diaz has relatively good stats this season: 13.9ppg, 4.7rpg, 1.5apg, 1.4bpg and 1.2spg. He has a dual citizenship: Cuban and American. Worth to mention Diaz played also at Eurobasket Summer League, which helped him get the job in pro basketball. Strangely Diaz has never played in Cuba.

   #4. Juan Pineiro (193-G-90, currently plays in Puerto Rico) led Brujos to a victory over one of league's weakest teams Vaqueros (5-9) 102-96 in the Puerto Rican BSN last Tuesday. Pineiro was the best player in that game. He recorded 21 points and had 3 steals. Brujos de Guayama (10-6) is placed second in the BSN. It was his team's fifth consecutive victory in a row. Pineiro has averaged so far 8.1ppg, 2.1rpg and 1.6apg.

   #5. Sigfredo Casero-Ortiz (185-PG-97, currently plays in Belgium) contributed to a 1-point Okapi Aalstar's victory against the third-ranked Spirou Charleroi (17-9) 74-73 in the Belgian Euromillions League on Monday night. He scored 19 points and grabbed 7 rebounds in 31 minutes. Crelan Okapi Aalstar (10-16) is placed eighth in the Euromillions League. It was his team's first victory after three consecutive loses. Casero-Ortiz has averaged so far 7.9ppg, 1.5rpg and 1.7apg in 26 games. He is another player who holds two passports: Cuban and Belgian.

   #6. Darol Hernandez (206-F-89, currently plays in Belarus) contributed to an easy victory against the second-ranked Rubon crushing them 99-79 in the Belarusian Premier League in Saturday night's game. Hernandez recorded 6 points and grabbed 7 rebounds. Hernandez has relatively good stats this season: 11.1ppg, 8.3rpg, 2.4apg and 1.9spg.

   #7. Yunio Barrueta (193-F/G-93, agency: Inception Sports, college: Barry, currently plays in France) was not able to secure a victory for Sluc Nancy in their game against SPO Rouen in the French ProB (second division). Barrueta scored 6 points, made 3 passes and 3 steals. His team was defeated 82-68. Barrueta has relatively good stats this season: 11.4ppg and 3.7rpg. He has both American and Cuban nationalities. Strangely Barrueta has never played in Cuba.

   #8. Marlon Diaz (200-C-98, currently plays in Argentina) couldn't help La Union in their game against Racing Chivilcoy in the Argentinian La Liga Argentina (second division). Diaz scored 6 points and grabbed 8 rebounds in 25 minutes. His team lost 75-83. Diaz has averaged so far 4.1ppg and 3.6rpg in 36 games.

   #9. Yankiel Moreno (189-G-90, agency: Interperformances, currently plays in Italy) contributed to a Baltur Cento's victory against the 15th-ranked Termoforgia JE 94-80 in the Italian Serie A2 (second division) in Sunday night's game. He scored 9 points and added 3 assists. Moreno has averaged so far 6.0ppg, 3.8rpg, 4.2apg and 1.1spg. He also holds two passports: Cuban and Italian. Despite Moreno's Cuban nationality, he previously played for the Italian U18 national team and is probably not eligible to play for the Cuban team.
