Traditionally, every week we bring you a list of the top performances of Bulgarians who are currently playing abroad.


Darius Adams
Darius Adams
   #1. This week's number one is an international point guard Darius Adams (188-89, college: Indianapolis, currently plays in China). He led Xinjiang Flying Tige to a victory over the closely-ranked Guandong Tigers (30-8) 103-97 in the Chinese CBA in Sunday night's game. Adams was MVP of the game. He scored 35 points (!!!), grabbed 6 rebounds and dished 7 assists in 41 minutes on the court. It was the game of the round between two top 4 ranked teams. Xinjiang Flying Tigers (32-6) are placed first in the CBA. It was his team's eighth consecutive victory in a row. It's Adams' first season with the team. Adams has individually a very good year with high stats. He averages: 30.8ppg, 5.8rpg, 5.9apg, 2.0spg, 2FGP: 56.4%(331-587), 3FGP: 35.3% and FT: 87.6% in 48 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.

Dee Bost
Dee Bost
   #2. Second place goes to an international point guard Dee Bost (188-89, agency: BeoBasket, college: Mississippi St., currently plays in France). He was the major contributor in Monaco's victory against the seventh-ranked Gravelines-Dunkerque (14-11) crushing them 92-72 in the French ProA last Saturday. Bost recorded a double-double by scoring 15 points and making 10 passes. AS Monaco Basket (22-3) is placed first in the ProA. It was his team's third consecutive victory in a row.

   #3. The Bulgarian player who performed third best last week abroad was an experienced former international point guard Earl Rowland (188-83, college: St.Mary's, CA, currently plays in VTB United League).
