   #1. This week's number one is an international forward Axel Hervelle (205-83, currently plays in Spain). He led Gescrap BB to a victory over the 16th-ranked Assignia Manresa (1-9) crushing them 83-63 in the Spanish ACB in Saturday night's game. Hervelle was MVP of the game. He recorded 13 points, 8 rebounds and 3 assists in a mere 18 minutes on the court. Gescrap Bizkaia Bilbao Basket (8-2) is placed second in the ACB. It was his team's third consecutive victory in a row. But this is still an early stage of the season and everything may happen. This year Hervelle averages: 7.3ppg, 4.7rpg, 1.5apg, 2FGP: 55.2%(32-58) and FT: 81.8% in the 10 games he played so far. He is currently a member of the Belgian senior national team.

Tabu could not help one of league's weakest teams Cantu (6-4) in their last game on Monday. Despite his very good performance Cantu was defeated 67-54 at home by the higher-ranked Montepaschi Siena (#3). Tabu was the second best scorer with 16 points. He also added 5 rebounds. But the season just started, so everything may happen. Tabu has relatively good stats this year: 11.4ppg, 5.1rpg, 3.7apg, 1.2spg, 2FGP: 48.8% and FT: 89.5%. He is in the roster of the Belgian senior national team.

Van Rossom was the second best scorer with 15 points. He also added 4 rebounds and 6 assists in 27 minutes. They ended the series of four consecutive victories.
