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.


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 fifth-ranked Flying Leopards (29-9) 111-103 in the Chinese CBA in Sunday night's game. Adams was MVP of the game. He scored 48 points (!!!) and grabbed 7 rebounds in 43 minutes on the court. Xinjiang Flying Tigers (32-6) are placed first in the CBA. It was his team's eighth consecutive victory in a row. Adams has individually a very good year with high stats. He averages: 30.7ppg, 5.8rpg, 5.8apg, 2.1spg, 2FGP: 55.8%(317-568), 3FGP: 35.6% and FT: 87.8% in 46 games he played so far. Adams is a naturalized American. He is currently a member of the Bulgarian senior national team. Strangely Adams has never played in Bulgaria.

Branko Mirkovic
   #2. Second place goes to an experienced former international guard Branko Mirkovic (190-82, agency: 011 Sports, currently plays in VTB United League). He could not help Kalev/Cramo (5-15) in their last game on Tuesday. Despite Mirkovic's very good performance Kalev/Cramo was defeated 94-86 at home by the higher-ranked Avtodor (#9). He recorded a double-double by scoring 28 points and making 11 passes. There are only four games left until the end of the VTB United League Regular Season. So now every game will be critical.
