    Default LNB season 2009/2010

    Since the Copa Argentina (preseason tournament involving all 16 LNB teams and 14 second division clubs) is just underway, i'll be posting these LNB rosters before the league begins on early October. Roster limits impose a maximum of 9 adults (born in 1988 or earlier), including a maximum of 3 imports.

    *= new signings

    Atenas de Córdoba
    Last season: Champions
    Coach: Rubén Magnano
    PG *Juan Pablo Cantero (1,90 - 1982)
    PG Juan Pablo Figueroa (1,88 - 1986)
    SG Andre Laws (1,85 - 1986 - USA)
    SG Federico Ferrini (1,93 - 1983)
    SF Juan Manuel Locatelli (2,00 - 1976)
    SF Cristian Romero (1,98 - 1982)

    C Diego Osella (2,09 - 1969)
    C Pablo Orlietti (2,06 - 1990)

    TITLE CANDIDATE:
    ------------------------------------------------

    Boca Juniors
    Coach: Pablo D'Angelo
    PG Nicolás Aguirre (1,88 - 1988)
    PG *Nelson Ingles (1,83 - 1975)
    SG *Cedric Moodie (1,85 - 1979 - USA)
    SG *Brian Woodward (1,90 - 1981 - USA)
    SF *Sebastián Castiñeira (1,96 - 1979)
    SF *Fabián Ramírez Barrios (1,96 - 1990)

    C Derrick Alston (2,06 - 1972 - USA)
    C Leandro Podestá (2,05 - 1992)

    CONTENDER Boca nearly quits the league due to financial issues, so it lost its best players (Espil and Gabriel Fernández) and won't be a title candidate for the first time in ages. Anyway, it found nice players to have a sleeper season.

    So, many notable transfers this offseason:

    -Leonardo Gutiérrez left champion Atenas, and joined finalist Peñarol... a club with fans that have always hated his guts.

    -Román González, then, left Peñarol for Quimsa.

    -Libertad hired Rubén Wolkowyski, who played last season in Uruguay and Puerto Rico, and hasn't played LNB since 2002.

    -Obras got lucky: picked up Juan Espil and Gaby Fernández from Boca's financial issues; and also got Bruno Lábaque from Atenas, because he had to move to Buenos Aires.

    -But Atenas replaced Lábaque with Juan Pablo Cantero, the NT PG coming from Sionista.

    -But Sionista replaced Cantero with Luis Cequeira, another young PG with NT experience who comes from Regatas.

    -La Unión pulled the biggest shock: the newly promoted team signed league MVP David Jackson, from finalists Peñarol.

    Weird note: Daaron Brown, import C for Quilmes, decided to leave the team (and the country) after getting mugged at gunpoint at his hotel lobby

    in the final day, Gimnasia crushed Sionista 81-66; but the champions were Quimsa, despite losing to Peñarol 77-73 in overtime, since the three-way tiebreaker favored them.

    In the Opening Game of the season, Atenas trashed Quimsa 83-61 (48-18 at the half). Surprising result since both teams are true favorites to the title, but also because Atenas was missing its starting center Kante.

    Atenas pulled another major signing, maybe the best signing of all: Diego Lo Grippo, the PF who played in Spain for a few years now.

    Strange signing: Regatas cut Colombian SG Stalin Ortiz, and replaced him with Paraguayan SF Bruno Zanotti.

    Well, let's update this with some action


    Bruno Lábaque of Obras, leading the South

    North Zone Standings: (some teams have been playing Liga Sudamericana games, so their standings aren't real)

    1) Atenas (5-2) 12 points
    2) Regatas (4-3) 11 points
    3) Libertad (4-2) 10 points
    4) La Unión (3-4) 10 points
    5) Unión (3-3) 9 points
    5) Quimsa (3-3) 9 points
    7) Sionista (3-2) 8 points
    8) Olímpico (0-6) 6 points

    South Zone:

    1) Obras (6-1) 13 points
    2) Central (5-2) 12 points (the great surprise so far)
    3) Peñarol (5-1) 11 points
    4) Boca (4-3) 11 points
    5) Quilmes (3-4) 10 points
    6) Gimnasia (2-5) 9 points
    7) Lanús (1-6) 8 points
    8) Estudiantes (1-5) 7 points
    -------------------------

    Here you can see the top players in several stats categories.

    And here you can see the stats of each player of every team.

    ----------------------------
    The most surprising player belongs to the most surprising team: Oscar Funes, SG of Central, is leading all scorers with 24.1 ppg. He also leads at efficiency rating and steals. The next top scorer is Luis Cequeira, PG of Sionista, whose 20.8 ppg are also unexpected, especially since he leads all passers at 4.5 apg.

    The rebounding leaderboard shows Federico Kammerichs of Regatas on top, which is no surprise. The shock is his average of 15.4 boards, nearly doubling his closest competitor.

    Odd: the efficiency ratings board has four Argentines at the top: Funes, Kammerichs, Cequeira and Rubén Wolkowyski. Andrés Pelussi, Gabriel Míkulas, Bruno Lábaque and Román González are also in the top 10.

    another big name joins an LNB team: Obras Sanitarias of Buenos Aires replaced injured Cuban PF Lázaro Borrell with American-Spanish C Chuck Kornegay, who playerd for the Spanish NT in 2001 and had his last job in Uruguay.

    Last night, Diego Osella became the first player to reach 1000 games in the LNB. He even scored a 2+1 on his first play of the game.

    Since his debut for Atenas in 1988, he's played every LNB season except for a two year period in Varese (2002/2004) and half a season in Alicante (2000/2001).

    Libertad 62 - Atenas 68 (nobody scored 15 points)
    Sionista 81 - Regatas 80
    Quimsa 83 - Olímpico 70 (the Santiago del Estero derby)
    Unión 88 - La Unión 90 (I don't think Pablo Barrios had ever scored 32 points! 7/9 threes!)
    Peñarol 73 - Lanús 62 (Victoriano scores 7 in his LNB comeback)

    Estudiantes 101 - Obras 92 (Pedro Franco's 28 points beat the leaders)
    Gimnasia 76 - Central 71 (Rollins + Buchanan + 3, adidas would say)
    Boca 77 - Quilmes 63 (unusually, Marcus Green ends up as top scorer)

    Peñarol hired SG Mike Jones, and released Brian Woordward... who signed in Boca, which cut Marcus Green.

    Lanús cut PG Antwan Dobie, mostly because of the arrival of PG Lucas Victoriano.

    Another import switching teams: Jamaal Levy left Estudiantes because of the club's budget issues and joined Lanús, which cut Byron Johnson.

    Phase 1 ended last night. Teams with an asterisk will play the Super 8 Tournament at the end of the year in Mar del Plata.

    North:
    23 Atenas (9-5)*
    23 Quimsa (9-5)*
    23 Sionista (9-5)*
    21 Libertad (7-7)*
    21 La Unión (7-7)
    18 Unión (6-8) two point discount because of fan violence
    18 Regatas (8-6) four point discount because of fan violence
    14 Olímpico (1-13) one point discount because of fan violence

    South
    24 Peñarol (10-4)*
    23 Boca (9-5)*
    22 Obras (8-6)*
    21 Central Entrerriano (7-7)
    21 Quilmes (7-7)*
    19 Lanús (5-9)
    19 Gimnasia (5-9)
    19 Estudiantes (5-9)

    Atenas: a incredibly rough defense, semi-illegaly rough according to some, that allows only 67 ppg. Lo Grippo's arrival gave the offense an extra outside threat. No player averages over 31 minutes, even if Orlietti still can't make it as a regular.

    Sionista: Cequeira (19 ppg) is incredibly on fire, and both imports (Robinson and Dixon) are solid scorers behind him. The team managed to overcome injuries by Martínez and Zilli.

    Quimsa: the deepest rotation in the league, nobody averages over 29 minutes, and 10 players get at least 10. Román González is the undisputed top scorer, but there's a lot of firepower behind him. And they did win the Liga Sudamericana in the process.

    Libertad: has underachieved so far. The biggest of all big-name rosters suffered the injury of Saglietti and still couldn't get minutes for its talented kids, but the scoring is very balanced.
