   #1. This week's number one is an international guard Rebecca Allen (185-92, agency: LBM Management, currently plays in Slovakia). She led Good Angels to a victory over the second-ranked Piestanske Cajky (8-4) crushing them 94-67 in the Slovakian Extraliga in Saturday night's game. Allen was MVP of the game. She scored 18 points and grabbed 7 rebounds (went 5 for 5 at the free throw line) in 23 minutes on the court. It was the game of the round between two top 3 ranked teams in group Places 1-4. Good Angels Kosice (11-1) is placed first. It was her team's sixth consecutive victory in a row. They will play only one more game in the Second Stage. And that game will be critical. Allen has relatively good stats this year: 13.8ppg, 4.3rpg, 1.3apg, 1.2bpg, 2.3spg, 2FGP: 51.4%, 3FGP: 54.7%(29-53) and FT: 87.0% in 20 games she played so far.
