   #2. Second place goes to an international point guard Georgi Tsintsadze (192-86, currently plays in Ukraine), who plays in the Ukrainian Superleague. Tsintsadze could not help Budivelnyk (28-11) in their last game. Despite his very good performance the league leader Budivelnyk was edged 96-95 on the road by the lower-ranked (#3) Azovmash. Tsintsadze was the second best scorer with 15 points. He also added 5 rebounds and dished 9 assists in 30 minutes. It's Tsintsadze's first season with the team.

The list of other players, who all have Georgian passport but never been selected to any of Georgian national teams:

He was MVP of the game. Hosley had a double-double by scoring 22 points and getting 10 rebounds in 22 minutes. It was the game of the round between two top 3 ranked teams in group Places 1-6. Stelmet Zielona Gora (20-12) is placed third. It's Hosley's first season with the team. Hosley belongs to league's top scorers (ranked #6) and also on the list of most steals (first place). He has individually a very good year with high stats. Hosley averages: 15.2ppg, 5.6rpg, 2.6apg and 2.4spg in the 40 games he played so far. He is a naturalized American.
