Earl Rowland
Earl Rowland
   #1. This week's number one is former international guard Earl Rowland (188-83, college: St.Mary's, CA, currently plays in Eurocup), who plays in Latvia. Rowland could not help VEF Riga (3-3) in their last game on Tuesday. Despite his good performance the third-placed VEF Riga was defeated 76-65 on the road by the leading Gescrap BB in the group J of Eurocup. Rowland scored 10 points and added 5 passes. The Top 16 already ended in the Eurocup. It's Rowland's first season with the team. Rowland is ranked seventh on the list of the best passers in the league. He has individually a very good season with high stats. Rowland averages: 15.3ppg, 4.2rpg, 4.8apg, 1.2spg, 2FGP: 53.2%, 3FGP: 40.4% and FT: 73.0%. He is a naturalized American. Rowland played for the Bulgarian senior national team two years ago. Strangely he has never played in Bulgaria.

Hristo Nikolov
Hristo Nikolov
   #2. Second place goes to an international power forward Hristo Nikolov (200-85, currently plays in Romania). He led U-Mobitelco to a victory over the 12th-ranked Giurgiu (8-15) 88-69 in the Romanian Liga Nationala last Friday. Nikolov was MVP of the game. He scored 22 points, grabbed 5 boards, passed 4 assists and added 5 steals in 31 minutes. CS U-Mobitelco Cluj Napoca (16-7) is placed fourth in the Liga Nationala. Nikolov has relatively good stats this year: 14.8ppg, 4.0rpg, 2.8apg, 1.8spg, 2FGP: 61.1%(88-144), 3FGP: 36.9% and FT: 70.6% in the 22 games he played so far.
