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 former international guard Earl Rowland (188-83, college: St.Mary's, CA, currently plays in VTB United League). He led his Latvian team VEF Riga to a 2-point victory over the seventh-ranked Triumph Lyubertsy (4-6) 80-78 in the VTB United League in Sunday night's game. Rowland was MVP of the game. He recorded 22 points and added 5 passes in 32 minutes on the court. VEF Riga (7-3) is placed third in group B. It's Rowland's first season with the team. Rowland is the league's top scorer and also on the list of best passers (third place). He has individually a very good year with high stats. Rowland averages: 19.0ppg, 6.3rpg, 5.7apg, 2.0spg, 3FGP: 34.5% and FT: 82.9% in the 10 games he played so far. He is a naturalized American. Rowland played for the Bulgarian senior national team two years ago. Strangely he has never played in Bulgaria.

Jared Homan
Jared Homan
   #2. Second place goes to former international center Jared Homan (206-83, college: Iowa St., currently plays in Germany). Homan led Bayern Muenchen to a 2-point victory over the closely-ranked ratiopharm Ulm (11-6) 80-78 in the German BBL on Saturday night. He was the best player in that game. Homan scored 20 points and grabbed 8 rebounds in 30 minutes. FC Bayern Muenchen (11-6) is placed fourth in the BBL. It was his team's sixth consecutive victory in a row. Homan is ranked fifth on the list of the best blockers in the league with 1.2bpg. This year his other stats are: 11.3ppg, 5.8rpg, 1.3apg, 2FGP: 45.8% and FT: 60.8% in the 16 games. Homan is a naturalized American. He played for the Bulgarian national team in 2010. Apparently Homan has never played in Bulgaria.

Despite Ivanov's good performance the sixth-placed Lietuvos rytas was badly defeated 83-63 at home by the second-ranked Spartak St.Petersburg in the group A of VTB United League.
