   #1. This week's number one is an international guard Marko Popovic (185-82, college: S.Idaho JC, currently plays in Euroleague), who plays in Lithuania.

He averages: 15.2ppg, 1.8rpg, 1.8apg, 2FGP: 47.8% and FT: 84.0% in the six games he played so far. Popovic played for the Croatian senior national team one years ago.
