Gasparico
Walter Gasparico (89) had an amazing evening in the last round for Amatitlan and that's him to receive a Interperformances Liga Metropolitana Player of the Week award for round 6.
The 29-year old had the game-high 21 points adding eight rebounds and six assists for Amatitlan in his team's victory, helping them to outclass, the league's bottom-ranked team La Villa (#10, 0-3) with 26-point margin 76-50. Amatitlan is placed at 6th position in Guatemalan Liga Metropolitana. Amatitlan is rather a weak team placed in lower part in the standings. They need more victories to improve their 1-2 record. In the team's last game Gasparico had a remarkable 71.4% from 2-point range. He turned to be Amatitlan's top player in his first season with the team. Gasparico has impressive league stats. He is in league's top in points (9th best: 17.0ppg), rebounds (5th best: 8.5rpg), assists (6th best: 5.0apg) and averages solid 6.0spg and 59.3% FGP.

The second most remarkable performance in last round's games was 25-year old swingman Diego Villagran (G/F-93) of Pampichi. Villagran impressed basketball fans with 18 points, 5 rebounds and 3 assists. Of course Pampichi cruised to a 66-56 relatively comfortable win over slightly higher-ranked Vacasi Sport (#5, 1-1). This victory allowed Pampichi to move up to 7th position in the standings. His team is not often considered as one of the league's best with a mere 1-2 record. Villagran is a newcomer at Pampichi 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 another Pampichi's star - ). showcased his all-around game by recording 11 points, seven rebounds and six assists in the last round. He was another key player of Pampichi, helping his team with a 66-56 win against slightly higher-ranked Vacasi Sport (#5, 1-1). The chances of Pampichi not to end season at such low position in the league, however are less than slim as they have already lost 2 games, recording just one victories. With bigger assistance of his teammates, could try to bring Pampichi's a little bit higher in the standings. has individually a great season in Guatemala. After only 2 games, he made it on the list of the league's leaders in points with 13.5ppg (best scorer), rebounds with 7.0rpg (#1 in league) and assists with 4.5apg (best passer).

7. Juan Ventura (96) of Vacasi Sport - 14 points and 9 rebounds
8. Rodrigo Vallejo (G/F-88) of Vacasi Sport - 12 points, 2 rebounds and 7 assists
