TWO foreign players of the NCAA Season 93 ruled this week's class of top individual performers with Lyceum's Mike Nzeusseu bannering the best five after three game days.
Nzesseu's power play propelled the Pirates to their eighth straight victory, while Perpetual's Prince Eze proved to be a force underneath as the Altas continue to hang around with the league leaders.
Nzesseu was instrumental in Lyceum's lone win this week as he powered the Pirates to a 75-68 come from behind win over the Letran Knights.
The 6-foot-6 Cameroonian energized the Pirates' fourth quarter surge as he did it on both ends, being an intimidating presence on the defensive end while terrorizing the Knights' frontcourt on offense.
If Nzeuaseu continues this kind of play then expect the Pirates to be tougher in the second round.
Eze took over in their 68-59 over Arellano University to end Perpetual's two game losing streak.
Eze finished with 21 points, 23 rebounds and five blocks in a dominating showing to prove that there is life after Bright Akhuetie.
Though they lost to San Beda at home, his presence underneath anchors what could be the best defense in college today.
With CJ Perez out of the rankings for the first time in a while, Letran's Nambatac remain as the only familiar face in this list.
The do it all combo guard for the Knights put up averages of 19.5 points, 10 rebounds and 2.5 assists as they split their games this week.
Though they lost to Lyceum, Nambatac is slowly proving he's still one of the best individual players in the tournament — and Letran's best shot at getting back in the final four.
With Tey Teodoro misfiring, Jose Rizal University finally found out what Grospe is capable of doing.
The lanky veteran forward towed the Heavy Bombers to back to back wins this week as they moved to the fourth spot in the NCAA.
For the week, Grospe became the Bombers' topscorer putting up an average of 16.5 points while also being their best playmaker with a 3.5 assist average.
