   #1. This week's number one is an experienced international center Taru Tuukkanen (190-77, agency: Regeneracom Sports, college: Xavier, currently plays in Spain), who plays in the Spanish LFB. She could not help Caja Rural (7-13) in their last game. Despite Tuukkanen's very good performance Caja Rural lost 60-64 at home to the one of league's weakest teams (#10) Socinsa Bembibre. She was the top scorer with 19 points. Tuukkanen also added 9 rebounds and dished 3 assists in 34 minutes on the court. The Regular Season already ended. Tuukkanen has relatively good stats this year: 13.7ppg, 6.3rpg, 1.1spg, 2FGP: 45.5% and FT: 78.0% in the 20 games she played so far. She is currently a member of the Finnish senior national team.
