We bring you last week's top performances from Albanians who are playing abroad and who all have had prior experience of national team duties at youth or senior level.


Klaudio Ndoja
Klaudio Ndoja
   #1. This week's number one is an international shooting guard Klaudio Ndoja (198-85, currently plays in Italy). He was the major contributor in a Enel Brindisi's victory against the league outsider Vanoli Cremona (1-3) 78-69 in the Italian SerieA in Sunday night's game. Ndoja scored 13 points in 22 minutes on the court. Enel Brindisi (1-3) is placed 11th in the SerieA. But this is still an early stage of the season and everything may happen. This year Ndoja averages: 5.0ppg, 2FGP: 66.7%, 3FGP: 44.4% and FT: 66.7% in the four games he played so far. He has a dual citizenship: Albanian and Italian. Despite Ndoja played previously for the Italian national team, he played also for the Albanian national team in 2012.

Ermal Kurtoglu
Ermal Kurtoglu
   #2. Second place goes to an international center Ermal Kurtoglu (208-80, agency: Beo Basket, currently plays in Turkey). Kurtoglu managed to help Anadolu Efes Istanbul to win against the closely-ranked Banvit BK (1-1) 79-69 in the Turkish TBL last Monday. He recorded only 2 points. It was his first game for Anadolu Efes this season. His team is placed fourth in the TBL. But the season just started, so everything may happen. Kurtoglu is another player who holds two passports: Albanian and Turkish. He is in the roster of the Albanian senior national team.

Erjon Kastrati
Erjon Kastrati
   #3. The Albanian player who performed third best last week abroad was former international swingman Erjon Kastrati (198-94, currently plays in Adriatic League). Kastrati contributed to a 2-point Krka's victory against the tenth-ranked Cibona (2-3) 69-67 in the Adriatic League on Sunday night. He recorded 8 points in 15 minutes. Krka Novo Mesto (3-2) is placed sixth in the Adriatic League. But the season is still in it's first stage and everything can happen. It's Kastrati's first year with the team. This season Kastrati averages only 4.0ppg, 3FGP: 75.0% and FT: 33.3% in the four games. He has both Kosovan and Albanian nationalities. Despite Kastrati played previously for the Kosovan national team, he played also for the Albanian national team in 2007.

Franko Bushati
Franko Bushati
   #4. Shooting guard Franko Bushati (190-85, agency: Two Points, currently plays in Italy), who plays in the Italian Lega2 (second division) could not help Givova Scafati (2-1) to beat C.de Latte BRE (2-1). Bushati scored 9 points. But Givova Scafati was edged 88-86 at home by the higher-ranked C.de Latte BRE (#3). But there are still lots of games to play and it's a long way to go. Bushati's overall stats this season are: 5.0ppg, 3.0rpg and 1.3spg. He also holds two passports: Albanian and Italian. Despite Bushati played previously for the Italian national team, he is currently in the Albanian national team roster.

   #5. International guard Nderim Pelaj (179-88, currently plays in Germany) was not able to help Dorsten (1-3) in their game against SC Rist Wedel (4-0) in the German ProB (third division). Pelaj recorded 5 points in 16 minutes. It was his first game for Dorsten this season. The ninth-placed Dorsten lost 67-77 on the road to the second-ranked SC Rist Wedel in the Group North. . Pelaj has been at the team for nine years. He holds both Albanian and German passports. Pelaj used to play for the Albanian national team earlier this year.
