He led his Filipino team SM Beermen to a victory over the closely-ranked Saigon Heat (10-7) crushing them 111-87 in the ASEAN League in Sunday night's game. Ramos was MVP of the game. He had a double-double by scoring 30 points and getting 18 rebounds. Ramos also added 4 assists in 31 minutes on the court. It was the game of the round between two top 4 ranked teams. San Miguel Beermen (13-2) is placed first in the ASEAN League. It was his team's fifth consecutive victory in a row. Ramos has individually a very good year with high stats. He averages: 20.0ppg, 12.5rpg, 4.0apg, 2FGP: 63.6%(89-140), 3FGP: 35.1% in 14 games he played so far. Ramos has a dual citizenship: Puerto Rican and American.

   #2. Second place goes to former international forward Renaldo Balkman (203-84, college: S.Carolina, currently plays in ASEAN League) is a teammate of previously mentioned Peter Ramos. But that was another game of his team in ASEAN League which we would like to mention. Balkman was the main contributor in a SM Beermen's victory against the closely-ranked Hong Kong ELL (11-9) 96-81. He was the best player in that game. Balkman scored 32 points (!!!), had 4 boards, handed out 4 passes and blocked 3 shots. It was the game of the round between two top 4 ranked teams. San Miguel Beermen (13-2) is placed first in the ASEAN League. It was his team's fifth consecutive victory in a row. It's Balkman's first season with the team. This year he has very high stats.

Rivera scored 16 points and added 5 passes. Fuerza Regia Monterrey (29-7) is placed first in North group. It was his team's 13th consecutive victory in a row.

Wilfredo Pagan
Wilfredo Pagan
   #6. Point guard Wilfredo Pagan (184-76, currently plays in Mexico) is a teammate of previously mentioned Carlos Rivera.

Clavell was the second best scorer with 21 points in a mere 18 minutes; quite an impressive performance considering it's only his second season in pro basketball. But Movil Estudiantes was edged 93-92 in a derby game by the lower-ranked (#14) Baloncesto Fuenlabrada. Clavell has reliable stats this year: 13.2ppg and 2.3rpg in 18 games.

Rivera recorded a double-double by scoring 21 points and making 14 passes. He also added 6 rebounds. Angeles de Puebla (12-22) is placed seventh in South group.
