  follow us on Facebook Twitter

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

Ibrahim Jaaber
Ibrahim Jaaber
   #1. This week's number one is former international point guard Ibrahim Jaaber (187-84, college: Pennsylvania, currently plays in Euroleague), who plays in Lithuania. Jaaber could not help Zalgiris (0-1) to beat Panathinaikos (1-0). He recorded 8 points, 4 rebounds and 3 assists. The fifth-placed Zalgiris was edged 67-66 on the road by the leading Panathinaikos in the group E of Euroleague. Jaaber belongs to league's most steals and is ranked #2. This season he averages: 6.7ppg, 2.3rpg, 2.4apg, 2.1spg, 2FGP: 53.8%, 3FGP: 36.0% and FT: 66.7%. Jaaber is a naturalized American. He played for the Bulgarian senior national team four years ago. Strangely Jaaber has never played in Bulgaria.

Earl Rowland
