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


Sonja Kireta
Sonja Kireta
   #1. This week's number one is an experienced former international center Sonja Kireta (198-76, currently plays in Italy). She led Parma to a victory over the seventh-ranked C.U.S. Chieti (4-10) crushing them 75-48 in the Italian A1 in Sunday night's game. Kireta was MVP of the game. She had a double-double by scoring 19 points and getting 14 rebounds. Kireta also added 2 blocks in 20 minutes on the court. Lavezzini Parma (10-3) is placed third in the A1. Kireta is currently sixth on the league's list of top scorers and also on the list of best rebounders (fourth place). She has individually a very good year with high stats. Kireta averages: 15.2ppg, 9.3rpg, 2FGP: 50.7% and FT: 67.9% in the 13 games she played so far. She played for the Croatian senior national team six years ago.

Iva Ciglar
Iva Ciglar
   #2. Second place goes to an international point guard Iva Ciglar (168-85, agency: Data Plus Group, currently plays in France). Ciglar was the main contributor in Perpignan's victory against the 12th-ranked Aix-en-Provence (7-12) 72-70 in the French LFB last Saturday. She was the best player in that game. Ciglar recorded 20 points, 4 rebounds and 6 assists. Perpignan Basket (13-5) is placed third in the LFB. Ciglar is currently fifth on the list of best passers. Her overall stats this season are: 7.0ppg, 2.9rpg, 4.4apg and FT: 67.9%. Ciglar is in the roster of the Croatian senior national team.

Marija Rezan

   #3. The Croatian player who performed third best last week abroad was an international center Marija Rezan (198-89, currently plays in Euroleague). She contributed to an easy victory against the seventh-ranked Lupa Promotion (1-11) 86-68 in the Euroleague in Wednesday night's game. Rezan scored 10 points, grabbed 7 rebounds and made 4 blocks. Perfumerias Avenida Salamanca (5-7) is placed fourth in group C. Her team will play only one more game in the Euroleague Regular Season. And that game will be critical. It's Rezan's first season with the team. Rezan's overall stats this year are: 6.0ppg, 6.4rpg, 1.8bpg. She is also a member of the Croatian senior national team.

Petra Stampalija
Petra Stampalija
   #4. Center Petra Stampalija (189-80, agency: Josep and Nicolas, currently plays in France) contributed to an Union Hainaut's victory against one of league's weakest teams Arras (5-14) 72-64 in the French LFB last Sunday. Stampalija recorded 12 points, 8 rebounds, 4 assists and made 5 blocks in 30 minutes. Union Saint-Amand Porte du Hainaut (5-14) is located at the very bottom in the LFB. Stampalija has relatively good stats this year: 10.8ppg, 4.6rpg, 4.0apg and 1.4bpg in the five games. She used to play for the Croatian national team back in 2010.

Ana Lelas
Ana Lelas
   #5. International swingman Ana Lelas (183-83, currently plays in France) contributed to an easy victory against the tenth-ranked Charleville-Mezieres (7-12) 80-64 in the French LFB on Saturday night. Lelas recorded 6 points, 4 rebounds and 4 assists. Lattes Montpellier Agglomeration Basket (16-3) is placed first in the LFB. Lelas' overall stats this season are: 9.2ppg, 4.1rpg and 1.8apg. She plays currently for the Croatian national team.

Lisa Karcic
Lisa Karcic
   #6. Power forward Lisa Karcic (185-86, agency: Regeneracom Sports, college: Villanova, currently plays in Spain), who plays in the Spanish LFB could not help Hondarribia-Irun (5-10) in their last game. Despite Karcic's good performance Hondarribia-Irun was badly defeated 94-78 on the road by the higher-ranked (#6) Gran Canaria. She recorded 12 points, 7 rebounds and 3 blocks in 38 minutes. It was Hondarribia-Irun's third consecutive loss in a row. Karcic belongs to league's most steals and is ranked #2 with 2.3spg. She also averaged so far 8.7ppg, 5.0rpg and 1.3apg in the 15 games. Karcic is a naturalized American. She is an international player who is currently on the senior Croatian National Team roster. Strangely Karcic has never played in Croatia.

Jelena Ivezic
Jelena Ivezic
   #7. International swingman Jelena Ivezic (182-84, currently plays in Turkey) contributed to a Ceyhan Bld's victory against the 11th-ranked Canik Bld (6-11) 80-74 in the Turkish TKBL last Saturday. She scored 10 points (was perfect 6-for-6 from the free throw line). Ceyhan Belediyespor (9-8) is placed sixth in the TKBL. This season Ivezic has relatively solid stats: 13.2ppg, 3.7rpg, 1.6apg and 1.6spg. She is also Croatian national team player.

Emilija Podrug
Emilija Podrug
   #8. Center Emilija Podrug (190-79, currently plays in France) was not able to help Lyon (11-8) in their game against Bourges (14-4) in the French LFB. She cannot count Saturday's game as one of the best ones. Podrug recorded only 2 points and added 3 assists. Lyon was defeated 62-50 on the opponent's court by the second-ranked Bourges. Podrug's overall stats this season are: 7.5ppg, 3.9rpg and 2.3apg. She used to play for the Croatian national team back in 2010.

Sandra Mandir
Sandra Mandir
   #9. International guard Sandra Mandir (177-77, currently plays in Turkey) was not able to secure a victory for Istanbul Universitesi (8-9) in their game against Fenerbahce (16-1) in the Turkish TKBL. Mandir scored 5 points and added 3 assists. Istanbul Universitesi was defeated 68-59 in a derby game by the leading Fenerbahce. Mandir's overall stats this season are: 6.0ppg, 3.0rpg and 2.5apg. She is also in the roster of the Croatian national team.


The list of other players, who all have Croatian passport but never been selected to any of Croatian national teams:

   #1. Experienced Suzy Batkovic-Brown (195-C-80, currently plays in Australia) led Adelaide Lightning to a victory over the seventh-ranked Sydney Uni Flames (7-16) crushing them 98-73 in the Australian WNBL on Friday night. She was the top player that evening. Batkovic-Brown scored 27 points (!!!), had 8 rebounds and dished 6 assists in 29 minutes. Adelaide Link Lightning (16-6) is placed third in the WNBL. It was her team's fifth consecutive victory in a row. There are only two games left until the end of the Regular Season. So now every game will be critical. Batkovic-Brown has individually a very good year with high stats. She averages: 21.2ppg, 9.9rpg, 2.2apg, 2.5bpg and 1.6spg in the 17 games she played so far. Batkovic-Brown has a dual citizenship: Croatian and Australian.

   #2. Jelena Radic (190-C-87, currently plays in Adriatic League) was the major contributor in a Radivoj Korac's victory against the tenth-ranked ZKK Vrsac (4-14) 73-60 in the Adriatic League on Saturday night. Radic scored 12 points and grabbed 5 rebounds in 26 minutes. Radivoj Korac Beograd (14-4) is placed second in group T. It was her team's fourth consecutive victory in a row. They will play only one more game in the Adriatic League Regular Season. And now that game is very crucial. This year Radic's overall stats are: 8.2ppg, 4.4rpg and 1.2apg in the 17 games.

   #3. Iva Grbas (188-F/C-87, currently plays in France), who plays in the French LF2 (12th division) could not help Limoges (3-13) in their last game. Despite Grbas' good performance Limoges was crushed 86-56 at home by the leading Nice. She had a double-double by scoring 11 points and getting 10 rebounds in 33 minutes. It was Limoges' fifth consecutive loss in a row. Grbas is ranked fifth on the list of the top scorers in the league with 15.4ppg. This year she also averages: 6.0rpg in the 14 games.
