Kyle Wiltjer
   #1. This week's number one is an international forward Kyle Wiltjer (208-92, college: Gonzaga, currently plays in Spain). He could not help Unicaja Malaga (18-13) in their last game. Despite Wiltjer's very good performance Unicaja Malaga was edged 78-76 on the road by the much lower-ranked (#15) UCAM Murcia. He was the top scorer with 21 points. Wiltjer also added 7 rebounds in 29 minutes on the court; quite an impressive performance considering it's only his third season in pro basketball. It was Unicaja Malaga's first loss after three consecutive victories. There are only two games left until the end of the Regular Season. So now every game will be critical. It's Wiltjer's first year with the team. Wiltjer has relatively good stats this season: 11.5ppg, 2.6rpg, 2FGP: 56.4%(75-133), 3FGP: 42.8% and FT: 76.7% in 32 games he played so far.
