POSTED BY:

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


Nihad Djedovic
Nihad Djedovic
   #1. This week's number one is an international forward Nihad Djedovic (198-90, agency: Beo Basket, currently plays in Germany). He was the major contributor in an ALBA Berlin's victory against the seventh-ranked Bayern Muenchen (6-6) 82-70 in the German BBL on Sunday night. Djedovic scored 14 points, grabbed 8 rebounds and dished 3 assists in 25 minutes on the court. ALBA Berlin (8-2) is placed third in the BBL. It was his team's sixth consecutive victory in a row. But the season just started, so everything may happen. Djedovic has relatively good stats this year: 11.2ppg, 3.4rpg, 1.6apg, 3FGP: 22.7% and FT: 87.8% in the 10 games he played so far. He is currently a member of the Bosnia and Herzegovina senior national team.

Esmir Rizvic
Esmir Rizvic
   #2. Second place goes to former international center Esmir Rizvic (213-82, college: Texas Tech, currently plays in Slovenia). Rizvic led Maribor Messer to an easy victory against the closely-ranked Elektra (4-4) 94-77 in the Slovenian Telemach League on Saturday night. He scored 18 points and grabbed 9 rebounds (was perfect 8-for-8 from the free throw line). KK Maribor Messer (6-2) is placed fourth in the Telemach League. It's Rizvic's first season with the team. Rizvic is currently sixth on the league's list of best rebounders. He has very reliable stats this season: 13.8ppg, 6.8rpg, 2FGP: 66.2%(45-68) and FT: 71.4%. Rizvic played for the Bosnia and Herzegovina national team in 2009.

Kenan Bajramovic
Kenan Bajramovic
   #3. The Bosnia and Herzegovina player who performed third best last week abroad was an international center Kenan Bajramovic (205-81, currently plays in Eurocup), who plays in Turkey. Bajramovic could not help one of league's weakest teams Banvit BK (3-2) to beat Valencia Basket (4-1). He scored 9 points and grabbed 5 rebounds. But Banvit BK was defeated 84-70 at home by the leading Valencia Basket. They ended the series of three consecutive victories. Bajramovic's team will play only one more game in the Eurocup Regular Season. And that game will be critical. This season Bajramovic averages: 8.0ppg, 6.0rpg, 2.0apg, 2FGP: 69.2% and FT: 44.4%. He is also a member of the Bosnia and Herzegovina senior national team.

Zack Wright
Zack Wright
   #4. Guard Zack Wright (195-85, college: Central Mo., currently plays in Eurocup) led his Russian team Spartak St.Petersburg to an easy victory against the closely-ranked Cibona (0-5) crushing them 93-60 in the Eurocup on Wednesday night. Wright scored 11 points in only a mere 14 minutes. It was the game of the round between two top 4 ranked teams. Spartak St.Petersburg (5-0) is placed first in the Eurocup. So far his team won all five games in the Regular Season. They will play only one more game in the Eurocup Regular Season. And now that game is very crucial. This year Wright has relatively solid stats: 10.6ppg, 3.4rpg and 4.0apg in the five games. He is a naturalized American. Wright is also Bosnia and Herzegovina national team player. Strangely he has never played in Bosnia.

Zlatko Jovanovic
Zlatko Jovanovic
   #5. Former international point guard Zlatko Jovanovic (181-84, also represented by Beo Basket, currently plays in Romania) led Timisoara to a victory over the eighth-ranked Gaz Metan (7-5) 77-69 in the Romanian Division A last Saturday. Jovanovic was MVP of the game. He scored 26 points (!!!) and added 3 passes in 33 minutes. BC Timisoara (8-3) is placed third in the Division A. Jovanovic belongs to league's best passers and is ranked #2 with 6.3apg. This year he also averages: 14.3ppg and 2.5rpg in the 11 games. Jovanovic used to play for the Bosnia and Herzegovina national team three years ago.

He recorded 14 points (made all of his six free throws) in 31 minutes. Politekhnika-Halychyna Lviv (10-9) is placed sixth in the Superleague.

Despite Popovic's very good performance Sloga was defeated 90-76 in Beograd by the much higher-ranked BKK Radnicki (#7). He was the second best scorer with 21 points. Popovic also added 4 rebounds and dished 7 assists. Popovic is ranked fourth on the list of the top scorers in the league and also on the list of best passers (first place). He has individually a very good season with high stats. Popovic averages: 16.3ppg, 3.4rpg, 6.4apg and 1.8spg. He used to play for the Bosnia and Herzegovina national team three years ago.

   #12. International point guard Nemanja Gordic (192-88, currently plays in Euroleague) couldn't help Partizan in their game against Regal FC Barcelona in the Euroleague.
