He scored 17 points and blocked 2 blocks in 22 minutes. B.C. River Andorra (3-0) is placed in the LEB Gold. So far his team won all three games in the Regular Season. Flis is ranked second on the list of the best blockers in the league with 1.3bpg. This year he also averages: 12.3ppg, 4.5rpg and 1.1spg in the 16 games. Flis is another player who holds two passports: Russian and Spanish.

   #6. Anton Kazarnovski (205-F/C-85, currently plays in Israel) contributed to a Hapoel Kazrin's victory against the league outsider Maccabi Kiryat Bialik 114-108 in the Israeli National League (second division) last Wednesday.
