Here is the weekly review of the top performing Albanian players, who play currently abroad.

Ermal Kuqo
Ermal Kuqo
#1. This week's number one is an international center Ermal Kuqo (208-80, agency: Beo Basket, currently plays in Turkey), who plays in the Turkish TBL. He could not help Anadolu Efes (7-2) to beat TED Kolejliler (5-5). Kuqo scored only 4 points in 6 minutes on the court. Anadolu Efes was edged 86-85 on the road by the lower-ranked (#7) TED Kolejliler. It was Anadolu Efes' first loss after five consecutive victories. But this is still an early stage of the season and everything may happen. This year Kuqo averages: 4.1ppg, 2.3rpg, 2FGP: 54.2% and FT: 77.8% in the eight games he played so far. He has a dual citizenship: Albanian and Turkish. Kuqo played for the Albanian senior national team one years ago.

#2. Second place goes to an international center Ersid Luca (212-81, currently plays in Lebanon), who plays in the Lebanese Division A. He was not able to help Hoops Club (2-5) in their last game. Despite Luca's good performance Hoops Club was crushed 123-85 in a derby game by the second-ranked Al Riyadi. He had a double-double by scoring 14 points and getting 16 rebounds. Luca also added 3 assists in 34 minutes. It was Hoops Club's fourth consecutive loss in a row. There are only two games left until the end of the Regular Season. So now every game will be critical. It's Luca's first season with the team. Luca is currently fifth on the list of best rebounders with 11.0rpg. This year his other stats are: 15.3ppg, 1.5apg, 2FGP: 49.4% and FT: 43.5% in the six games. Luca is another player who holds two passports: Serbian and Albanian.
