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


Ernest Bremer
Ernest Bremer
   #1. This week's number one is an international guard Ernest Bremer (194-80, agency: Higher Vision Sports, college: St.Bonaventure), who plays in the Italian SerieA. He could not help one of league's weakest teams Armani Milano (22-10) in their last game on Saturday. Despite Bremer's good performance Armani Milano was defeated 86-77 on the road by the leading Montepaschi Siena. He recorded 10 points. This season Bremer averages: 9.2ppg, 2.5rpg, 2.5apg, 2FGP: 41.7%, 3FGP: 36.9% and FT: 81.3%. He is a naturalized American. Despite Bremer played previously for the USA national team, he is currently a member of the Bosnia and Herzegovina senior national team. Bremer used to play for Bosna ASA BH Telecom Sarajevo in Bosnia and Herzegovina league.

Mirza Begic
Mirza Begic
   #2. Second place goes to an international center Mirza Begic (217-85). He managed to help Real Madrid in a victory against the league leader Regal FC Barcelona (29-5) crushing them 85-59 in the Spanish ACB on Monday night. Begic scored 5 points in 12 minutes. It was the game of the round between two top 4 ranked teams. Real Madrid (26-8) is placed second in the ACB. Begic is currently fifth on the league's list of best blockers with 1.3bpg. This year his other stats are: 5.3ppg, 4.0rpg, 2FGP: 62.7%(96-153) and FT: 60.4% in the 42 games he played so far. Begic has a dual citizenship: Bosnia and Herzegovina and Slovenian. He is in the roster of the Bosnia and Herzegovina senior national team.

Zack Wright
Zack Wright
   #3. The Bosnia and Herzegovina player who performed third best last week abroad was an international guard Zack Wright (188-85, college: Central Mo.). Wright contributed to Cibona's victory against the second-ranked Cedevita (11-3) 77-64 in a derby game in the Croatian A1 in Tuesday night's game. He recorded 6 points and added 3 passes. It was the game of the round between two top 3 ranked teams in Group Championship. KK Cibona VIP Zagreb (14-0) is placed first in Championship Group. So far his team won all fourteen games in the Finals. Wright is ranked seventh on the list of the best passers in the league and also on the list of most steals (third place). His overall stats this season are: 8.7ppg, 4.0rpg, 3.5apg, 2.1spg, 2FGP: 63.3%(76-120) and FT: 51.2%. Wright is a naturalized American. Despite he played previously for the USA national team, Wright played also for the Bosnia and Herzegovina national team in 2012. Strangely he has never played in Bosnia.

Mile Ilic
Mile Ilic
   #4. Center Mile Ilic (215-84, agency: Interperformances) contributed to Zvezda's victory against the leader Partizan (12-2) 68-56 in a derby game in the Serbian A League last Friday. Ilic scored 7 points, grabbed 8 rebounds and made 2 blocks in 21 minutes. It was the game of the round between two top 3 ranked teams in group SuperLiga. Crvena Zvezda Beograd (0-0) is placed first. It's Ilic's first season with the team. This year his overall stats are: 6.4ppg and 4.6rpg in the 17 games. Ilic is another player who holds two passports: Bosnia and Herzegovina and Serbian. Despite he played previously for the Serbian national team, Ilic is currently in the Bosnia and Herzegovina national team roster.

Veselin Petrovic
Veselin Petrovic
   #5. An experienced international swingman Veselin Petrovic (196-77, agency: Beo Basket) contributed to a 1-point Base Oostende's victory against the closely-ranked Spirou Charleroi (23-9) 75-74 in the Belgian Ethias League on Friday night. He scored 8 points and grabbed 4 rebounds. It was the game of the round between two top 4 ranked teams. Telenet Oostende (23-9) is placed first in the Ethias League. It was his team's fifth consecutive victory in a row. Petrovic has been at the team for seven years. Petrovic's total stats this season are: 6.4ppg and 3.1rpg. He has both Bosnia and Herzegovina and Serbian nationalities. Despite Petrovic played previously for the Serbian national team, he is currently in the Bosnia and Herzegovina national team roster.

Vedran Princ
Vedran Princ
   #6. Point guard Vedran Princ (192-82) faced previously mentioned Zack Wright in the Croatian A1 last game. Princ was not able to help Cedevita (11-3) in their game against Cibona (14-0). He cannot count it as his best performance. Princ recorded only 3 points in 14 minutes. The second-placed Cedevita lost 64-77 in a derby game to the leading Cibona in the Championship Group. This year Princ's total stats are: 3.8ppg, 1.4rpg and 1.2apg in the 17 games. He is a former international player as he played for the Bosnia and Herzegovina senior team five years ago.

Ivan Opacak
Ivan Opacak
   #7. International shooting guard Ivan Opacak (201-80) is a teammate of previously mentioned Vedran Princ and both played together in the last Croatian A1 game. Opacak was not able to secure a victory for Cedevita (11-3) in their game against Cibona (14-0). He cannot count Tuesday's game as one of the best ones. Opacak recorded only 2 points. Cedevita (#2) was defeated 77-64 in a derby game by the leading Cibona in the Championship Group. Opacak has averaged so far 7.7ppg and 2.0rpg. He used to play for the Bosnia and Herzegovina national team years ago.


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

   #1. Goran Suton (209-C-85, college: Michigan St.) led Cibona to a victory against the second-ranked Cedevita (11-3) 77-64 in a derby game in the Croatian A1 in Tuesday night's game. He recorded 13 points, 9 rebounds and 4 assists in 24 minutes. It was the game of the round between two top 3 ranked teams in Group Championship. KK Cibona VIP Zagreb (14-0) is placed first in Championship Group. So far his team won all fourteen games in the Finals. It's Suton's first season with the team. Suton is currently seventh on the list of best rebounders with 6.6rpg. He also averaged so far 10.2ppg and 1.2spg in the 20 games he played so far. Suton has a dual citizenship: Bosnia and Herzegovina and Croatian. Despite his Bosnia and Herzegovina passport, Suton previously played for the Croatian national team and is probably not eligible to play for the Bosnia and Herzegovina team.
