Sasha Vujacic
Sasha Vujacic
   #1. This week's number one is former international shooting guard Sasha Vujacic (201-84, currently plays in Euroleague), who plays in Turkey.

Despite Vujacic's very good performance the third-placed Anadolu Efes lost 76-91 at home to the lower-ranked (#4) Caja Laboral in the group C of Euroleague. He was the top scorer with 21 points. Vujacic also added 4 rebounds and dished 3 assists in 34 minutes on the court. His team will play only one more game in the Euroleague Regular Season. And that game will be critical. Vujacic has relatively good stats this year: 14.2ppg, 2.8rpg, 1.4apg, 2FGP: 39.1%, 3FGP: 54.1%(20-37) and FT: 72.7% in the nine games he played so far.

Real Madrid (10-0) is placed first in the ACB. So far his team won all ten games in the Regular Season. But this is still an early stage of the season and everything may happen.
