Despite Ayuba's good performance the league leader Norrkoping Dolphins was defeated 83-77 on the road by the much lower-ranked LF Basket (#8). He scored 11 points. Ayuba is one of the most experienced players in a team as it's his fourth year in Norrkoping Dolphins' roster. Ayuba averaged so far 10.1ppg, 5.3rpg and 1.5apg. He is a naturalized American. Interesting that Ayuba has never played in United Kingdom.

   #3. Keith Rendleman (203-F-90, currently studies in the States), who plays in the NCAA was not able to help the NC-Wilmington (1-1) in their last game. Despite his very good performance the NC-Wilmington was crushed 78-50 in Harrisonburg, VA by the James Madison University. Rendleman scored 17 points and blocked 2 shots in 36 minutes.
