Andrei Kirilenko
Andrei Kirilenko
   #1. This week's number one is an international forward Andrei Kirilenko (209-81, currently plays in NBA). He led Minnesota Timberwolves to a victory against the Philadelphia 76ers (22-30) 94-87 in the NBA in Wednesday night's game. Kirilenko scored 15 points, had 5 boards, handed out 5 passes and blocked 3 shots (went 6 for 6 at the free throw line) in 37 minutes on the court. The Minnesota Timberwolves have 20-32 record this season. It's Kirilenko's first year with the team. He has individually a very good year with high stats. Kirilenko averages: 13.4ppg, 6.2rpg, 3.0apg, 1.1bpg, 1.5spg, 2FGP: 56.7%(177-312), 3FGP: 31.5% and FT: 77.0% in the 43 games he played so far. He is a naturalized American.

Alexey Shved
Alexey Shved
   #2. Second place goes to an international guard Alexey Shved (198-88, agency: Alti Sport, currently plays in NBA) is a teammate of previously mentioned Andrei Kirilenko. But that was another game of his team in NBA which we would like to mention. Shved, who plays in the NBA. He could not help the Minnesota Timberwolves (20-32) in their last game. Despite Shved's very good performance the Minnesota Timberwolves were badly defeated 127-111 on the road by the Oklahoma City Thunder. He was the top scorer with 17 points. Shved also added 4 rebounds in 25 minutes. It's Shved's first season with the team. He has relatively good stats this year: 10.6ppg, 2.6rpg, 4.3apg, 2FGP: 44.5%, 3FGP: 30.3% and FT: 73.5% in the 47 games. Shved is in the roster of the Russian senior national team.

Nelyubov recorded a double-double by scoring 13 points and getting 10 rebounds. Tartu Ulikool/Rock (17-0) is placed first in the KML. So far his team won all seventeen games in the Regular Season. There are only four games left until the end of the Regular Season. So now every game will be critical. Nelyubov's overall stats this season are: 7.8ppg, 4.1rpg. He played for the Russian university national team two years ago.

Teymuraz Babunashvili
   #4.

He scored only 2 points. The Arizona State University has a solid 9-5 conference record this season. There are only four games left until the end of the NCAA Regular Season. So now every game is very crucial. Pateev has been at the team for four years. Pateev's total stats this season are: 5.1ppg, 1.8rpg and 2.3apg. He used to play for the Russian U20 national team three years ago.

   #2. Lazaros Papadopoulos (210-C-80, currently plays in Greece) managed to help PAOK Thessaloniki in a victory against the 12th-ranked Peristeri GS (5-12) 63-55 in the Greek A1 last Sunday.

He recorded 16 points, 9 rebounds and 3 assists in 27 minutes. Liepajas Lauvas (9-15) is placed ninth in the LBL. Adediran has individually a very good year with high stats.

   #5. Aliaksandr Pustahvar (202-SF-85, currently plays in EuroChallenge), who plays in Belarus could not help Tsmoki-Minsk (1-4) to beat Okapi Aalstar (2-3). He scored 9 points (was perfect 5-for-5 from the free throw line). But the fourth-placed Tsmoki-Minsk was crushed 100-76 on the road by the higher-ranked Okapi Aalstar (#3) in the group L of EuroChallenge. Pustahvar's team will play only one more game in the EuroChallenge Top 16. And now that game is very crucial. Pustahvar's overall stats this season are: 7.8ppg and 2.7rpg. He also holds two passports: Russian and Belarusian.

   #6. Alexey Chubrevich (212-C-86, currently plays in Israel) contributed to a Maccabi Haifa's victory against the closely-ranked GreenTops Netanya 79-68 in the Israeli Winner League on Monday night.

   #8. Igor Simin (197-G-84, agency: Avi Zilberman, currently plays in Israel) helped Beer Yaakov win their game against the league outsider Maccabi K/G 92-79 in the Israeli National League (second division) last Tuesday. Simin scored 16 points, had 8 rebounds and dished 4 assists in 35 minutes. This year Simin's overall stats are: 9.3ppg, 3.1rpg, 1.8apg and 1.6spg in the 16 games. He holds both Russian and Israeli passports. Despite Simin's Russian nationality, he previously played for the Israeli U21 national team and probably cannot be called to the Russian team.

   #9. Albert Kuppe (195-F-88, currently plays in Germany), who plays in the German ProA (second division) was not able to secure a victory for Oettinger Rockets Gotha (8-14) in their last game on Sunday.
