Khem Birch
Khem Birch
   #1. This week's number one is an international center Khem Birch (208-92, college: UNLV, currently plays in Greece). He led Olympiacos to a victory over the sixth-ranked AGOR (12-12) 70-63 in the Greek A1 in Monday night's game. Birch was MVP of the game. He scored 15 points and grabbed 6 rebounds in 20 minutes on the court; quite an impressive performance considering it's only Birch's third season in pro basketball. Olympiacos S.F.P. Pireus (20-0) is placed first in the A1. So far his team won all twenty games in the Regular Season. There are only two games left until the end of the Regular Season. So now every game will be critical. This year Birch averages: 6.5ppg, 5.3rpg, 2FGP: 70.7%(65-92) and FT: 62.8% in 24 games he played so far. He is currently a member of the Canadian senior national team.

Melvin Ejim

   #2. Second place goes to an international forward Melvin Ejim (200-91, college: Iowa St., currently plays in Basketball Champions League). Ejim was the main contributor in an Umana Venezia's victory against the closely-ranked Pinar Karsiyaka (9-5) 74-66 in the Basketball Champions League last Wednesday. He was the best player in that game. Ejim recorded a double-double by scoring 16 points and getting 11 rebounds. He also added 3 assists; not bad, considering it's only Ejim's third season in pro basketball. Umana Reyer Venezia (9-5) is placed third in group B. It's Ejim's first year with the team. He has relatively good stats this season: 11.5ppg, 6.2rpg, 1.5apg, 1.5spg, 2FGP: 52.6%, 3FGP: 46.5%(20-43) and FT: 77.8%. Ejim has a dual citizenship: Canadian and Nigerian.

   #6. Experienced Michael Fraser (203-C-84, college: Oklah.Baptist, currently plays in Poland) could not help Polfarmex (4-22) in their last game.
