Here is the weekly review of the top performing Bosnia and Herzegovina players, who play currently abroad.


Nihad Djedovic
Nihad Djedovic
   #1. This week's number one is an international small forward Nihad Djedovic (196-90, agency: BeoBasket, currently plays in Germany). He was the major contributor in a Bayern Muenchen's victory against the 13th-ranked Giessen 46ers (0-1) crushing them 87-53 in the German BBL in Saturday night's game. Djedovic recorded 15 points and grabbed 4 rebounds in 21 minutes on the court. It was his first game for Bayern Muenchen this season. His team is placed second in the BBL. But this is still an early stage of the season and everything may happen. It's Djedovic's fifth year with the team. He has a dual citizenship: Bosnia and Herzegovina and German. Djedovic played for the Bosnia and Herzegovina senior national team one years ago.

He recorded 15 points and grabbed 5 rebounds. Tsmoki-Minsk (4-0) is placed third in the Basketball Champions League. So far his team won all four games in the Qualifying Round.
