Kari Jonsson
Kari Jonsson
   #1. This week's number one is U20 international guard Kari Jonsson (190-97, currently plays college basketball in the States). He led Drexel to an easy victory against the College of William & Mary 79-61 in the NCAA in Thursday night's game. Jonsson scored 23 points and had 4 steals in 35 minutes on the court. The Drexel University has not so impressive 3-11 conference record this season. There are only four games left until the end of the NCAA Regular Season. So now every game will be critical. This year Jonsson averages: 9.9ppg, 2.3rpg, 2.0apg, 2FGP: 54.9%, 3FGP: 44.4% and FT: 79.3% in 27 games he played so far. He is currently a member of the Icelandic U20 national team.

Acox also added 4 assists and 4 steals. The Furman University has a very good 12-2 conference record this season. There are only three games left until the end of the NCAA Regular Season. So now every game is very crucial. It's Acox's fourth year with the team. He has relatively good stats this season: 12.9ppg, 7.3rpg, 1.4apg, 1.3spg, 2FGP: 62.1%(151-243) and FT: 61.6%.
