   #1. This week's number one is former international guard Richard Hickman (189-85, college: NC-Greensboro, currently plays in Italy). He was the major contributor in a Armani Milano's victory against the fifth-ranked Banco di Srd (12-10) 82-75 in the Italian Serie A in Sunday night's game. Hickman recorded 17 points and added 4 passes in 27 minutes on the court. EA7 Emporio Armani Milano (19-3) is placed first in the Serie A. It was his team's fifth consecutive victory in a row. It's Hickman's first season with the team. This year he averages: 9.9ppg, 2.8rpg, 2.8apg, 1.1spg, 2FGP: 54.8%, 3FGP: 42.0% and FT: 68.5% in 17 games he played so far. Hickman is a naturalized American. He played for the Georgian senior national team three years ago. Strangely Hickman has never played in Georgia.
