Roy Hibbert
Roy Hibbert
   #1. This week's number one is former international center Roy Hibbert (218-86, college: Georgetown, currently plays in NBA).

He had a double-double by scoring 20 points and getting 15 rebounds. Hibbert also added 5 blocks in 30 minutes on the court. The Indiana Pacers have 21-14 record this season. It's Hibbert's fifth year with the team. He belongs to league's best blockers and is ranked #3 with 2.7bpg. Hibbert also averaged so far 9.7ppg, 8.4rpg, 1.5apg, 2FGP: 40.2% and FT: 66.2% in the 35 games he played so far. He is a naturalized American.

   #2. Second place goes to former international forward Ronald Yates (201-83, college: St.Peter's, currently plays in Switzerland), who plays in the Swiss LNA. Yates could not help Fribourg (12-2) in their last game. Despite his very good performance the league leader Fribourg was crushed 102-72 on the road by the second-ranked Geneve Lions. Yates was the top scorer with 25 points. He also added 6 rebounds in 27 minutes. They ended the series of eleven consecutive victories. There are only four games left until the end of the Regular Season. So now every game will be critical. Yates has relatively good stats this year: 13.0ppg, 5.8rpg, 2.4apg, 2FGP: 51.5%, 3FGP: 18.2% and FT: 63.3% in the 14 games. He is a naturalized American.

He recorded 8 points, 6 assists and 3 steals in 19 minutes. Pioneros de Quintana Roo-Cancun (11-11) is placed fifth in the LNBP. There are only two games left until the end of the Regular Season.
