Tsintsadze scored 21 points, grabbed 5 rebounds and dished 4 assists in 34 minutes. It was the game of the round between two top 4 ranked teams. Budivelnyk Kyiv (28-10) is placed first in the Superleague. There are only two games left until the end of the Regular Season. So now every game will be critical. This year Tsintsadze's overall stats are: 8.1ppg, 2.9rpg, 3.9apg, 1.4spg, 2FGP: 44.6%, 3FGP: 29.6% and FT: 75.9% in the 38 games he played so far.

   #3. The Georgian player who performed third best last week abroad was an international point guard Corey Fisher (186-88, college: Villanova, currently plays in Spain), who plays in the Spanish ACB. Fisher could not help FIATC Joventut (13-13) in their last game on Sunday. Despite his very good performance FIATC Joventut was edged 71-68 on the road by the lower-ranked CB Canarias (#12). Fisher was the top scorer with 28 points. He also added 4 rebounds. It's Fisher's first season with the team. Fisher is currently seventh on the league's list of top scorers.
