American swingman Ryan Ferranti (195-F/G-86) put on an amazing game in the last round for Baerum Basket, receiving a Eurobasket.com Player of the Week award for round 22. The 26-year old player had a double-double of 24 points and 11 rebounds, while his team beat Asker Aliens (#6, 7-11) 83-75. Baerum Basket maintains the 3rd position in Norwegian BLNO. They would have been even better if they hadn't lost a few games earlier this season. Baerum Basket will need more victories to improve their 12-9 record. It's Ferranti's second year at Baerum Basket and it's hard to imagine this team without him. Ryan Ferranti averages this season 14.1ppg and 6.1rpg.
The second best player in last round's games was 24-year old American Jonathan Jones (196-F-88) of league's leader Tromso. Jones had a very good evening with a double-double of 23 points and 19 rebounds. Bad luck as Tromso was edged by the lower-ranked Froya Basket (#4, 10-10) 79-78. It was definitely game of the week between two contenders to the title. Tromso still maintains its place as the top team in the standings, even despite this loss. His team has currently 15-4 record. Jones is a newcomer at Tromso, but is already one of team's top players. He belongs to the best scorers in the league with 22.5ppg (#1). He also registered 14.8 boards per game.
Third on the list of top players last round was American forward Delano Thomas (203-F-81) of Gimle BBK (#5). Thomas scored 17 points and grabbed thirteen rebounds (!!!). Despite Thomas' great performance Gimle BBK lost 65-75 to the higher-ranked Tromso (#1, 15-4). But his team cannot count on just a single player as he also needs help of the other teammates. The chances of Gimle BBK ranking at the top of the league, however are very questionable as they have already lost 13 games, recording just nine victories. With bigger assistance of his teammates, Thomas could help Gimle BBK to bring them higher in the standings. Thomas has a great season in Norway. After 22 games, he made it on the list of the league's leaders in points with 19.7ppg (4th best), rebounds with 10.4rpg (2nd best) and assists with 3.5apg (6th best).
