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


Earl Rowland
Earl Rowland
   #1. This week's number one is an international guard Earl Rowland (188-83, college: St.Mary's, CA, currently plays in VTB United League). Rowland led his Latvian team VEF Riga to a victory over the sixth-ranked BC Nizhny Novgorod (4-4) 86-82 in the VTB United League in Sunday night's game. He was MVP of the game. Rowland scored 17 points, grabbed 8 rebounds and dished 5 assists. VEF Riga (6-2) is placed third in group B. It was his team's fourth consecutive victory in a row. It's Rowland's first season with the team. Rowland is ranked first on the list of the top scorers in the league and also on the list of best rebounders (seventh place). He has individually a very good season with high stats. Rowland averages: 18.0ppg, 6.8rpg, 6.1apg, 2.0spg, 2FGP: 61.0%(47-77) and FT: 78.8%. He is a naturalized American.

   #2. Second place goes to former international point guard Ibrahim Jaaber (187-84, college: Pennsylvania, currently plays in Euroleague). Jaaber managed to help B.C.

Zalgiris Kaunas (7-2) is placed first in group C. Jaaber's team will play only one more game in the Euroleague Regular Season. And that game will be critical.
