Once of the most competitive seasons in the last time has been this National League 2017, where 7 of 8 teams are fighting for the best places in the position table. ICCAN had have more time in the 1st place. At the last date, they won Importadora Alvarado ( In the 1st round Importadora won them). Juan Herrea was the last incorporation and his experience and ability give more depth to ICCAN. Jesus Centeno (190-G-85), Cesar Silva (190-G/F-81) and Juan Pablo Alvarez (201-C-92) have given the offensive contribution, and in the defensive zone they have had the contribution with Carlos Carcelen (202-C-81) and Eduar Caicedo. ICCAN handly right now the best performance of the tournament (7-3). In 2nd place there are tie with three teams: Piratas de Los Lagos, Club Juvenil de Vinces and Leones de Riobamba. Lucas Gil Russo has handled a good conection betwen his players: Anibal Malatay, Rafael Perez (193-G/F-82, agency: Paris Global Sports) and Paul Cano (170-PG-86). But still have doubts around his defensive acttitude and the power under the boards. Juvenil de Vinces is the another team wich refoircement are all from Venezuela: Lenin Lopez, Yovany Diaz and Nelson Palacios. The Vince's Coach Lautaro Saenz has said that the team play with the phylosophy that all his player must play all the position; sounds strange but they are in the 3rd place.. It this working. Leones have had great nights but in another their deffensive actitutte has been to forgotten. Javinger Vargas must show all his condition to stimulate his team. The point guard position since the injured of Alexander Morillo have changed in the last day with the inclusion of Jose Acosta. Importadora Alvarado have one of the more offensive player this year : Tavares Sledge, but he is in debt with his contribution in defense. Barcelona have liven all the season with differents injury trouble. Marvin Cairo still isn't healthy and the combination Keith Bowman (201-F-72, college: Lamar)-Raul Cardenas (190-G-82, college: Faulkner) is not enought. HR this week confirmed their participation in the southamerican club tournament. They dont have a constant peformance but they have depended from the Adriano Barrera who average more tan 26 points per game. The Triple E situation is hard because they are building a team to future but right now they try to compete but it's not possible. Seven team which difference betwen the 1st place and the 7th place only is 2 1/2 games. Has been very exciting this 10 dates, let us hopps that this competitions level growth in the next weeks.
