Marko Popovic
Marko Popovic
   #1. This week's number one is an international guard Marko Popovic (185-82, college: S.Idaho JC, currently plays in Euroleague). He was the major contributor in Zalgiris' victory against the fifth-ranked Armani Milano (3-6) 67-65 in the Euroleague in Friday night's game. Popovic scored 14 points (went 5 for 5 at the free throw line) in 28 minutes on the court. B.C. Zalgiris Kaunas (7-2) is placed first in group C. His team will play only one more game in the Euroleague Regular Season. And that game will be critical. Popovic has relatively good stats this year: 14.6ppg, 1.6rpg, 1.7apg, 2FGP: 47.2%, 3FGP: 44.9% and FT: 86.1% in the nine games he played so far.

Simon was the top scorer with 14 points. He also added 4 rebounds and dished 3 assists. But this is still an early stage of the season and everything may happen. This year Simon has relatively solid stats: 11.2ppg, 3.3rpg, 2.2apg, 2FGP: 55.0%, 3FGP: 43.6%. He is in the roster of the Croatian senior national team.
