   #1. This week's number one is an international forward Levon Kendall (209-84, college: Pittsburgh, currently plays in Spain), who plays in the Spanish ACB. He could not help Blusens Monbus (4-2) in their last game. Despite Kendall's very good performance Blusens Monbus was badly defeated 76-58 on the road by the lower-ranked (#12) CAI Zaragoza. He was the top scorer with 21 points. Kendall also added 6 rebounds and made 2 blocks in 35 minutes on the court. But this is still an early stage of the season and everything may happen. Kendall belongs to league's top scorers (ranked #2) and also on the list of best blockers (third place). He has individually a very good year with high stats. Kendall averages: 17.0ppg, 6.3rpg, 1.8apg, 1.5bpg, 2FGP: 51.4% and FT: 71.0% in the six games he played so far. He has a dual citizenship: Canadian and Irish.
