He had a double-double by scoring 18 points and getting 12 rebounds in 29 minutes; not bad, considering it's only Baru's second season in pro basketball. SISU Copenhagen (6-12) is placed fifth in the Ligaen. This year Baru has relatively solid stats: 14.0ppg, 9.1rpg, 1.2apg and 1.1spg in 20 games.

He scored 12 points, had 6 boards, handed out 3 passes and blocked 4 shots. BiG Oettinger Rockets Gotha (16-14) is placed seventh in the ProA. It was his team's first victory after three consecutive loses. There are only three games left until the end of the Regular Season. So now every game will be critical.

There are only three games left until the end of the Regular Season. So now every game is very crucial. Gloyd has reliable stats this season: 10.7ppg and 4.5rpg. He also holds two passports: Ivorian and American.

   #6. Armand Anebo (194-SF-87, currently plays in United Kingdom) was not able to secure a victory for Leeds Force in their game against Bristol Acadamy Flyers in the British BBL.
