   #1. This week's number one is an experienced former international swingman Romain Sato (195-81, college: Xavier, currently plays in Spain). He managed to help Valencia Basket in a victory against the closely-ranked FC Barcelona (22-10) crushing them 83-61 in the Spanish Liga Endesa in Saturday night's game. Sato recorded only 2 points in 13 minutes on the court. Valencia Basket (23-9) is placed third in the Liga Endesa. It's Sato's fourth season with the team. This year he averages: 5.7ppg, 2.4rpg, 2FGP: 45.7%, 3FGP: 34.9% in 31 games he played so far. Sato played for the Central African senior national team four years ago.

Max Kouguere

   #2. Second place goes to former international small forward Max Kouguere (198-87, currently plays in France). He contributed to a Olympique Antibes' victory against the ninth-ranked Gravelines-Dunkerque (16-18) 79-71 in the French ProA last Tuesday. Kouguere recorded 6 points. Sharks Antibes (12-22) is placed 14th in the ProA. The Regular Season already ended. It's Kouguere's first season with the team. His overall stats this year are: 7.9ppg, 4.6rpg, 1.3apg, 2FGP: 44.8%, 3FGP: 39.4%. Kouguere has a dual citizenship: Congolese and Central African.

   #3. The Central African player who performed third best last week abroad was former international power forward Maxime Zianveni (198-79, currently plays in France). Zianveni could not help Boulazac Basket (19-15) in their last game. Despite his good performance Boulazac Basket lost 68-75 on the road to the lower-ranked (#8) ALM Evreux. Zianveni recorded 10 points, 5 rebounds and 3 assists in 25 minutes. They ended the series of three consecutive victories. There are only two games left until the end of the Regular Season. So now every game will be critical. This year Zianveni's overall stats are: 7.2ppg, 4.9rpg, 1.9apg, 1.6spg, 2FGP: 60.7%(82-135), 3FGP: 36.4% and FT: 56.9% in 30 games.

Djimrabaye was not able to help Gravelines-Dunkerque in their game against Olympique Antibes (12-22). His contribution was not very remarkable in Tuesday's game. Djimrabaye recorded only 2 points. Gravelines-Dunkerque was defeated 79-71 in Antibes by the lower-ranked Olympique (#14). It was Gravelines-Dunkerque's third consecutive loss in a row. The Regular Season already ended.
