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


Marko Popovic
Marko Popovic
   #1. This week's number one is an international guard Marko Popovic (185-82, college: S.Idaho JC, currently plays in Lithuania). He led Zalgiris to a victory over the seventh-ranked Lietuvos rytas (3-1) 90-79 in the Lithuanian LKL in Monday night's game. Popovic was MVP of the game. He scored 20 points and added 3 assists in 23 minutes on the court. B.C. Zalgiris Kaunas (4-0) is placed second in the LKL. So far his team won all four games in the Regular Season. But this is still an early stage of the season and everything may happen. This year Popovic averages: 10.0ppg, 3.0apg, 2FGP: 75.0%, 3FGP: 33.3% in the three games he played so far. He played for the Croatian senior national team one years ago.

Ante Tomic
Ante Tomic
   #2. Second place goes to an international center Ante Tomic (217-87, currently plays in Euroleague). Tomic was the major contributor in a Regal FC Barcelona's victory against the sixth-ranked Lietuvos rytas (1-6) crushing them 90-66 in the Euroleague last Thursday. He recorded 17 points and grabbed 7 rebounds. Regal FC Barcelona (7-0) is placed first in group D. So far his team won all seven games in the Regular Season. There are only three games left until the end of the Euroleague Regular Season. So now every game will be critical. Tomic is currently third on the list of best blockers. His overall stats this season are: 8.7ppg, 5.4rpg, 1.7apg, 1.7bpg, 1.1spg, 2FGP: 60.5%(26-43) and FT: 40.9%. Tomic played for the Croatian national team in 2011.

Krunoslav Simon
Krunoslav Simon
   #3. The Croatian player who performed third best last week abroad was an international swingman Krunoslav Simon (197-85, agency: Beo Basket, currently plays in Spain), who plays in the Spanish ACB. He could not help one of league's weakest teams Unicaja Malaga (5-4) in their last game. Despite Simon's very good performance Unicaja Malaga lost 79-90 on the road to the higher-ranked (#6) Caja Laboral. He was the second best scorer with 16 points. Simon also added 4 rebounds in 33 minutes. But the season just started, so everything may happen. Simon has relatively good stats this year: 10.9ppg, 3.2rpg, 2.1apg, 2FGP: 53.1%, 3FGP: 43.8% and FT: 78.6% in the nine games. He is also a member of the Croatian senior national team.

Mario Delas
Mario Delas
   #4. Power forward Mario Delas (207-90, currently plays in Lithuania) is a teammate of previously mentioned Marko Popovic.

He recorded 11 points and grabbed 5 rebounds. B.C. Zalgiris Kaunas (4-0) is placed second in the LKL. So far his team won all four games in the Regular Season. It's Delas' first season with the team.

Radosevic scored 14 points and grabbed 8 rebounds in 28 minutes. Lietuvos Rytas Vilnius (3-3) is placed sixth in group A. But the season is still in it's first stage and everything can happen. This year Radosevic's overall stats are: 8.7ppg and 5.2rpg in the six games. He used to play for the Croatian U20 national team two years ago.

So far his team won all three games in the Regular Season. There are only three games left until the end of the Eurocup Regular Season. So now every game will be important. This year Pilepic averages only 7.0ppg in the three games. He is also Croatian national team player.
