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


Darius Adams
Darius Adams
   #1. This week's number one is an international point guard Darius Adams (188-89, agency: Stealth Sport, college: Indianapolis, currently plays in China). He led Xinjiang Flying Tige to a victory over the 12th-ranked Qingdao Eagles (15-20) 110-102 in the Chinese CBA in Sunday night's game. Adams was MVP of the game. He scored 42 points (!!!), grabbed 6 rebounds and dished 6 assists in 42 minutes on the court. Xinjiang Flying Tigers (29-6) are placed second in the CBA. It was his team's fifth consecutive victory in a row. There are only three games left until the end of the Regular Season. So now every game will be critical. Adams has individually a very good year with high stats. He averages: 32.6ppg, 5.7rpg, 6.1apg, 2.0spg, 2FGP: 56.1%(239-426), 3FGP: 35.3% and FT: 87.1% in 33 games he played so far.
