Traditionally, every week we bring you a list of the top performances of Albanians who are currently playing abroad.


Klaudio Ndoja
Klaudio Ndoja
   #1. This week's number one is former international swingman Klaudio Ndoja (201-85, currently plays in Italy). He led Virtus Bologna to a victory over the sixth-ranked Roseto (17-13) crushing them 76-53 in the Italian Serie A2 (second division) in Saturday night's game. Ndoja was MVP of the game. He scored 18 points in 20 minutes on the court. Virtus Segafredo Bologna (21-9) is placed first in East group. There are only three games left until the end of the Regular Season. So now every game will be critical. It's Ndoja's first season with the team. This year Ndoja averages: 9.6ppg, 3.7rpg, 1.3spg, 2FGP: 58.8%(20-34), 3FGP: 40.9% in 11 games he played so far. He has a dual citizenship: Albanian and Italian. Ndoja played for the Albanian senior national team five years ago.

Rashaun Broadus
Rashaun Broadus
   #2. Second place goes to an experienced international point guard Rashaun Broadus (183-84, agency: Octagon Europe, college: BYU, currently plays in Germany). He could not help SC Rasta Vechta (2-28) in their last game on Friday. Despite Broadus' very good performance SC Rasta Vechta was edged 91-90 on the road by the higher-ranked Science City Jena (#12). He was the top scorer with 18 points. Broadus also added 7 passes. There are only two games left until the end of the Regular Season. So now every game is very crucial. Broadus' overall stats this season are: 7.8ppg, 1.7rpg, 4.4apg, 1.4spg, 2FGP: 46.3%, 3FGP: 24.4% and FT: 70.8%. He is a naturalized American. Broadus is in the roster of the Albanian senior national team. Strangely he has never played in Albania.

Franko Bushati
Franko Bushati
   #3. The Albanian player who performed third best last week abroad was former international shooting guard Franko Bushati (189-85, agency: Two Points, currently plays in Italy). Bushati was not able to help Brescia in their game against Dolomiti En. TR (16-12) in the Italian Serie A. It was not his best game last Sunday. Bushati recorded only 3 points, 5 rebounds and 5 assists in 32 minutes. Brescia was crushed 99-59 in Trento by the higher-ranked (#5) Dolomiti En. TR. There are only two games left until the end of the Regular Season. So now every game will be important. This year Bushati's overall stats are: 2.9ppg, 1.3rpg, 2FGP: 45.9%, 3FGP: 21.4% and FT: 54.5% in 28 games. He is another player who holds two passports: Albanian and Italian. Bushati played for the Albanian national team five years ago.

Elvisi Dusha
Elvisi Dusha
   #4. Guard Elvisi Dusha (188-94, currently plays in United Kingdom) was not able to secure a victory for one of league's weakest teams Plymouth Raiders (14-19) in their game against Scorchers (15-18) in the British BBL. He recorded only 4 points. Plymouth Raiders was crushed 93-70 in Guildford by the higher-ranked Scorchers (#8). It was Plymouth Raiders' sixth consecutive loss in a row. The Regular Season already ended. Dusha's total stats this season are: 3.5ppg, 1.7rpg and 2.1apg. He has both Albanian and British nationalities. Dusha is also Albanian national team player.

Celis Taflaj
Celis Taflaj
   #5. International small forward Celis Taflaj (201-98, currently plays in Italy) couldn't help Viola RC in their game against Legnano (19-11) in the Italian Serie A2 (second division). He did not have that impressive stats last Saturday. Taflaj scored only 2 points and grabbed 4 rebounds in 21 minutes. The tenth-placed Viola RC lost 65-77 in Castellanza to the much higher-ranked (#3) Legnano in the West group. This year Taflaj's total stats are: 1.3ppg and 1.6rpg in 21 games. He plays currently for the Albanian national team.


One more player who has never been selected to any of national teams, but has Albanian passport:

   #1. Klaudio Patani (197-F/C-96, currently plays in Italy). Patani could not help Isernia (8-22) to beat Porto S.Elpidio (16-14). He scored 8 points and grabbed 6 rebounds. Isernia (#14) was defeated 66-62 at home by the higher-ranked Porto S.Elpidio (#8) in the Group D. It was Isernia's fourth consecutive loss in a row. The Regular Season already ended. Patani has averaged so far 9.9ppg, 7.2rpg and 1.2spg. He has a dual citizenship: Albanian and Italian.
