American forward Lance Kearse (198-F) had an amazing evening in the last round for Lan Mobel ISB, receiving a Eurobasket.com LEB Silver Player of the Week award for round 16. The -year old player had a double-double of 18 points and 11 rebounds, while his team edged out Oviedo CB (#2, 10-4) 84-80. Lan Mobel ISB is placed at 5th position in Spanish LEB Silver. They would have been even better if they hadn't lost a few games earlier this season. Lan Mobel ISB will need more victories to improve their 8-6 record. It was one of impressive evenings for Kearse as usually he does not deliver so high stats. Lance Kearse averages this season 11.9ppg and 5.9rpg.
The second best player in last round's games was 22-year old American Will Hanley (200-G/F-90, agency: Duran International) of league's second-best Oviedo CB. Hanley had a very good evening with a double-double of 24 points and 14 rebounds. Bad luck as Oviedo CB was edged by the lower-ranked Lan Mobel ISB (#5, 8-6) 84-80. Oviedo CB managed to keep the same second spot in the standings. His team's 10-4 record is not bad at all. Hanley is a newcomer at Oviedo CB, but is already one of team's top players. He belongs to the best scorers in the league with 18.4ppg (#1). He also registered 11.4 boards per game.
Third on the list of top players last round was center Victor Hidalgo (204-C-86) of Castello (#10). Hidalgo scored 18 points and grabbed ten rebounds. Despite Hidalgo's great performance Castello lost 84-85 to slightly higher-ranked Palma (#8, 6-9). But his team cannot count on just a single player as he also needs help of the other teammates. The chances of Castello not to end season at such low position in the league, however are less than slim as they have already lost 9 games, recording just five victories. With bigger assistance of his teammates, Hidalgo could try to bring Castello's a little bit higher in the standings. Hidalgo has individually a great season in Spain. After 14 games, he made it on the list of the league's leaders in points with 13.7ppg (5th best). He also has 1.2bpg and FGP: 66.7%.
