Brock Motum
Brock Motum
   #1. This week's number one is former international forward Brock Motum (208-90, college: WSU, currently plays in Turkey). He was the major contributor in a 3-point Anadolu Efes' victory against the fifth-ranked Besiktas (12-16) 95-92 in a derby game in the Turkish BSL in Monday night's game. Motum scored 14 points and grabbed 7 rebounds in 23 minutes on the court. Anadolu Efes Istanbul (20-3) is placed first in the BSL. It was his team's 12th consecutive victory in a row. There are only three games left until the end of the Regular Season. So now every game will be critical. Motum has individually a very good year with high stats. He averages: 18.0ppg, 5.8rpg, 1.3apg, 3FGP: 39.5% and FT: 79.4% in 12 games he played so far. Motum played for the Australian senior national team three years ago.

Mangok Mathiang
Mangok Mathiang
   #2. Second place goes to an international power forward Mangok Mathiang (208-92, college: Louisville, currently plays in Italy). He led Vanoli Cremona to a victory over one of league's weakest teams VL Pesaro (7-18) crushing them 97-64 in the Italian Serie A last Sunday. Mathiang was MVP of the game. He recorded a double-double by scoring 20 points and getting 14 rebounds. Mathiang also added 2 blocks; quite an impressive performance considering it's only his second season in pro basketball. Vanoli Basket Cremona (16-9) is placed third in the Serie A. Mathiang has relatively good stats this season: 10.5ppg, 9.7rpg, 2FGP: 60.6%(114-188) and FT: 52.2%.

Simmons also added 8 assists and 4 steals in 33 minutes; not bad, considering it's only his third season in pro basketball. It was 76ers' third consecutive loss in a row.
