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.


Dejan Ivanov
Dejan Ivanov
   #1. This week's number one is former international power forward Dejan Ivanov (205-86, agency: Beo Basket, currently plays in VTB United League).
