Jakob Sigurdarson
Jakob Sigurdarson
   #1. This week's number one is an international point guard Jakob Sigurdarson (192-82, college: Birm.Southern, currently plays in Sweden).

He recorded 30 points (!!!), 4 rebounds and 6 assists in 38 minutes on the court. Sundsvall Dragons (25-4) is placed first in the Basketligan. It was his team's fourth consecutive victory in a row.
