   The 2010 Puerto Rican BSN Season

Frans Steyn - 2 games, 9.5 mpg, 1.0 ppg, 5.0 rpg, 0.0 apg, 1.5 fpg, 0.0 spg, 0.0 bpg, 17% FG, 0% EPT, 0% FT (0-4)

The only exceptions to this are the rare occasions where no one league is said to be above the other, such as with the JBL/BJ League split in Japan.
