Evariste Shonganya
Evariste Shonganya
   #1. This week's number one is an international power forward Evariste Shonganya (204-92, currently plays in Sweden).

Shonganya had a double-double by scoring 16 points and getting 14 rebounds. He also added 4 assists and 2 blocks in 31 minutes on the court. It was the game of the round between two top 4 ranked teams. KFUM Jamtland Basket (3-1) is placed first in the Basketligan. It was his team's third consecutive victory in a row. But this is still an early stage of the season and everything may happen. It's Shonganya's first year with the team. Shonganya has individually a very good season with high stats. He averages: 19.0ppg, 14.8rpg, 4.3apg, 1.5bpg, 1.8spg, 2FGP: 55.1%(27-49) and FT: 57.6% in four games he played so far. Shonganya is currently a member of the DR Congolese senior national team.
