He got a double-double of 28 points and 10 assists, while his team edged out Vichy Clermont (#8, 7-6) 101-99. Antibes is placed at 10th position in French ProB. Antibes is a typical solid league team placed somewhere in the middle or a little bit lower in the standings. They need more victories to improve their 6-6 record. In the team’s last game Ukic had a remarkable five three-pointers out of 7 attempts. He turned to be Antibes’ top player in his first season with the team. Roko-Leni Ukic averages this season 14.6ppg and 4.5apg.

Second best performed player last round was Marquis Wright (185-PG-95) of Denain. He is American guard in his first season at Denain. In the last game Wright recorded impressive 19 points, 8 rebounds and 6 assists. Of course Denain cruised to a 82-75 relatively comfortable win over the lower-ranked Evreux (#14, 5-8). This victory allowed Denain to move up to 6th position in the standings. His team lost some distance to top teams. But 8-5 record is not bad and everything may still change.

Third place about best performers goes to forward Makram Ben Romdhane (205-PF-89) of Fos-Provence (#16). Ben Romdhane scored 17 points and grabbed sixteen rebounds (!!!). Despite Ben Romdhane’s great performance Fos-Provence lost 68-69 to the higher-ranked Nancy (#5, 8-5). But his team cannot count on just a single player as he also needs help of the other teammates. The chances of Fos-Provence not to end season at such low position in the league, however are less than slim as they have already lost 9 games, recording just four victories. With bigger assistance of his teammates, Ben Romdhane could try to bring Fos-Provence’s a little bit higher in the standings. Ben Romdhane has a very solid season. In 13 games in France he scored 8.8ppg.
