Naturalized Cape Verdean forward Carlos Andrade (197-F-78) had an amazing evening in the last round for top-ranked Benfica, receiving a Eurobasket.com Player of the Week award for round 16. The 34-year old player was the main contributor (22 points, eight rebounds and three assists) to his team's victory, helping them to beat Lusitania (#8, 4-10) 70-61. It allowed Benfica to consolidate first place in the Cape Verdean LPB. Benfica has a very good season and are considered to have a run for the championship title. They improved their record to 13-1. In the team's last game Andrade had a remarkable three three-pointers out of 6 attempts. He turned to be Benfica's top player in his first season with the team. Carlos Andrade averages this season 12.2ppg and 7.3rpg.
The second best player in last round's games was 23-year old Cape Verdean Ivan Almeida (198-G-89) of Vitoria SC. Almeida had a very good evening with 20 points, 9 rebounds and 6 assists. Of course he lead Vitoria SC to another comfortable win outscoring the lower-ranked Galitos-Tley (#11, 2-13) 87-66. Vitoria SC's 6th position in the standings has not changed. His team lost some distance to top teams. But 8-7 record is not bad and everything may still change. Almeida is a newcomer at Vitoria SC, but is already one of team's top players. He belongs to the best scorers in the league with 19.2ppg (#3). He also registered 9.8 boards per game.
Third on the list of top players last round was American guard Steve Baker (187-G-90) of Sampaense (#5). Baker scored 27 points. He was a key player of Sampaense, leading his team to a 85-80 win against slightly higher-ranked Ovarense (#3, 10-4). Sampaense needs these victories very badly if they think about getting closer to top teams. Their record at this point is 8 victories and 6 lost games. Baker has a great season in Portugal. After 14 games, he made it on the list of the league's leaders in points with 16.9ppg (6th best). Baker attended one of camps at Eurobasket Summer League on his way to pro basketball.
