Ben Madgen
Ben Madgen
   #1. This week's number one is an experienced former international swingman Ben Madgen (193-85, college: Augusta, currently plays in Germany). He could not help Crailsheim Merlins (0-1) in their last game. Despite Madgen's very good performance Crailsheim Merlins lost 80-93 on the road to the much higher-ranked (#4) Eisbaeren Bremerhaven. He was the top scorer with 31 points. Madgen also added 6 rebounds in 33 minutes on the court. It was his first game for Crailsheim Merlins this season. But this is still an early stage of the season and everything may happen. Madgen played for the Australian senior national team four years ago.

Joshua Wilcher
Joshua Wilcher
   #2. Second place goes to former international point guard Joshua Wilcher (178-91, college: Cent.Wyoming, currently plays in United Kingdom). Wilcher was the major contributor in a Plymouth Raiders' surprising victory against the fourth-ranked London Lions (2-1) 95-88 in the British BBL on Sunday night. He recorded 26 points (!!!) and added 7 assists in 36 minutes. Plymouth University Raiders (1-2) is placed tenth in the BBL. But the season is still in it's first stage and everything can happen. Wilcher has relatively good stats this year: 13.7ppg, 2.0rpg, 4.7apg, 3FGP: 27.8% and FT: 75.0% in three games he played so far. He has a dual citizenship: Australian and British. Former Sandringham Sabres starter played for the Australian national team in 2009.
