- David Hawkins
Temple graduate Hawkins moved to Montepaschi Siena in the summer, who went undefeated in Italy's SerieA last year. They're doing it again this year, too, with a 21-0 record and easily on course for their fourth consecutive championship. (Pepsi Caserta are in second place with a 15-7 record. They are seven games behind in the loss column with only 9 weeks left. It's over.) Hawkins is a big part of Siena's success this season, averaging 12.8 points per game in the Italian league and 11.2ppg in the Euroleague (from which Siena have been eliminated), while playing his usual brand of tough defense.
