   #2. Second place goes to an international guard Sasu Salin (192-91, currently plays in Adriatic League), who plays in Slovenia. He could not help Un.Olimpija (9-9) in their last game on Saturday. Despite Salin's good performance Un.Olimpija was defeated 73-67 on the road by the higher-ranked Cedevita (#4). He scored 11 points and grabbed 7 rebounds.

   #4. Center Gerald Lee (208-87, college: ODU, currently plays in Eurocup) was not able to help Buducnost (2-1) in their game against Banvit BK (2-1) in the Eurocup. He scored 8 points. The third-placed Buducnost was defeated 89-80 in Balikesir by the second-ranked Banvit BK in the group I of Eurocup. There are only three games left until the end of the Eurocup Top 16. So now every game will be critical. Lee has relatively good stats this season: 10.2ppg and 3.6rpg. He is a naturalized American. Lee is also Finnish national team player. Strangely he has never played in Finland.

Despite Caven's very good performance Prat Juventud lost 71-79 in Azpeitia to the higher-ranked (#4) Lan Mobel ISB. He was the top scorer with 20 points. Caven also added 4 rebounds (was perfect 8-for-8 from the free throw line) in a mere 18 minutes. This year Caven's overall stats are: 8.0ppg and 2.6rpg in the 12 games.

Despite Kaunisto's very good performance Blois lost 67-75 on the opponent's court to the higher-ranked (#7) Monaco. He had a double-double by scoring 15 points and getting 10 rebounds. Kaunisto also added 2 blocks in 28 minutes. It was Blois' third consecutive loss in a row. Kaunisto is ranked second on the list of the top scorers in the league and also on the list of best rebounders (first place). He has individually a very good year with high stats.
