We bring you last week's top performances from Danes who are playing abroad and who all have had prior experience of national team duties at youth or senior level.


Shavon Shields
Shavon Shields
   #1. This week's number one is former international guard Shavon Shields (201-94, college: Nebraska, currently plays in Germany). He was the major contributor in a Deutsche Bank Skyliners' victory against the 16th-ranked Braunschweig (4-19) crushing them 92-56 in the German BBL in Sunday night's game. Shields recorded 16 points, 6 rebounds and 3 assists in 27 minutes on the court; quite an impressive performance considering it's only his third season in pro basketball. Fraport Skyliners Frankfurt (10-14) is placed tenth in the BBL. Shields has relatively good stats this year: 14.1ppg, 5.3rpg, 1.9apg, 2FGP: 60.1%(92-153), 3FGP: 37.2% and FT: 76.8% in 23 games he played so far. He played for the Danish senior national team two years ago.

Chanan Colman
Chanan Colman
   #2. Second place goes to an experienced former international guard Chanan Colman (191-84, college: Chipola JC, currently plays in Israel). Colman could not help Hapoel Eilat (12-10) in their last game on Sunday. Despite his good performance Hapoel Eilat was defeated 81-72 on the road by the lower-ranked Maccabi Haifa (#6). Colman was the second best scorer with 14 points. He also added 5 rebounds and 3 assists. The Regular Season already ended. It's Colman's first season with the team. This year Colman averages: 7.9ppg, 2.8rpg, 3.7apg, 2FGP: 48.6%, 3FGP: 36.8% and FT: 79.3%. He has a dual citizenship: Danish and Israeli. Former Roskilde BC starter played for the Danish national team in 2008.

Darko Jukic
Darko Jukic
   #3. The Danish player who performed third best last week abroad was an international guard Darko Jukic (199-90, currently plays in Slovenia). Jukic led Krka to an easy victory against the ninth-ranked Sencur Gorenjska gradbena druzba Kranj (7-15) crushing them 86-62 in the Slovenian Liga Nova KBM on Tuesday night. He recorded 11 points and grabbed 6 rebounds in 21 minutes. Krka Novo Mesto (18-5) is placed second in the Liga Nova KBM. The Regular Season already ended. This year Jukic's overall stats are: 8.6ppg, 3.1rpg, 1.6apg, 2FGP: 64.3%(18-28) and FT: 61.5% in nine games. He is also a member of the Danish senior national team.

Lasse Elbaek
Lasse Elbaek
   #4. Center Lasse Elbaek (208-94, currently plays in Sweden) led Malbas to a victory against one of league's weakest teams Umea (5-25) 93-84 in the Swedish Basketligan last Tuesday. Elbaek scored 22 points and grabbed 6 rebounds in 27 minutes. Malbas Oresund Malmo (1-10) is placed second from the bottom (#8) in the Basketligan. It was Malbas' third 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. This year Elbaek has relatively solid stats: 10.5ppg, 6.6rpg and 1.1apg in 28 games. He is also Danish national team player.

Mikkel Plannthin
Mikkel Plannthin
   #5. Former international guard Mikkel Plannthin (195-88, agency: Octagon Europe, currently plays in Sweden) contributed to an easy victory against the closely-ranked Uppsala Basket (17-11) crushing them 91-66 in the Swedish Basketligan on Friday night. Plannthin scored 10 points. It was the game of the round between two top 4 ranked teams. Norrkoping Dolphins (20-8) is placed second in the Basketligan. It was his team's third consecutive victory in a row. There are only three games left until the end of the Regular Season. So now every game is very crucial. Plannthin's total stats this season are: 6.4ppg, 2.3rpg, 2.8apg and 1.1spg. He used to play for the Danish national team two years ago.

Alan Voskuil
Alan Voskuil
   #6. Guard Alan Voskuil (191-86, college: Texas Tech, currently plays in Italy) was not able to help Viola RC (0-0) in their game against FCM Ferentino (10-14) in the Italian Serie A2 (second division), despite his very good performance in Sunday night's game. Voskuil was the second best scorer with 14 points. He also added 5 rebounds in 30 minutes. But the tenth-placed Viola RC lost 76-81 in Ferentino to the lower-ranked (#13) FCM Ferentino in the West group. This year Voskuil's total stats are: 9.2ppg, 3.5rpg, 2.0apg and 1.2spg in six games.

Jonas Bergstedt
   #7. International center Jonas Bergstedt (210-91, currently plays in Switzerland) was not able to secure a victory for Massagno (6-13) in their game against Fribourg (16-3) in the Swiss LNA. Despite his very good performance last Sunday Bergstedt was the second best scorer with 13 points. He also added 7 rebounds. Bergstedt's team will play only one more game in the Regular Season. And now that game is quite important. Bergstedt has individually a very good season with high stats. He averages: 15.3ppg, 9.5rpg and 1.5apg. Bergstedt is also Danish national team player.

Daniel Mortensen
Daniel Mortensen
   #8. Forward Daniel Mortensen (203-94, currently plays in NCAA2) couldn't help the Barry University (13-5) in their game against the University of Alabama in Huntsville (18-5) in the NCAA2, despite his good performance on Sunday night. He scored 10 points and grabbed 9 rebounds in 33 minutes. But the Barry University lost 82-96 in Huntsville to the University of Alabama in. There are only two games left until the end of the NCAA2 National Tournament Round 2. So now every game will be important. Mortensen has reliable stats this year: 11.3ppg, 6.3rpg and 1.6apg in 25 games. He used to play for the Danish national team back in 2015.

Sebastian Petersen
Sebastian Petersen
   #9. Former U20 international guard Sebastian Petersen (188-95, agency: Dynamics Global Management, currently plays in Sweden) is a teammate of previously mentioned Lasse Elbaek and both played together in the last Swedish Basketligan game. Petersen contributed to Malbas' victory against one of league's weakest teams Umea (5-25) 93-84. He scored 9 points and added 5 passes. Petersen averaged so far 10.7ppg, 3.7rpg and 3.3apg. He used to play for the Danish U20 national team two years ago.

Jonathan Gilling
Jonathan Gilling
   #10. Forward Jonathan Gilling (203-91, college: Arizona St., currently plays in Spain) couldn't help Leche Rio Breogan (17-9) in their game against Gipuzkoa (19-8) in the Spanish LEB Gold (second division). Gilling scored 6 points in only 11 minutes. Leche Rio Breogan lost 86-92 in San Sebastian to the leading Gipuzkoa. They ended the series of four consecutive victories. Gilling's stats this year are: 10.3ppg, 3.6rpg and 1.4apg in 26 games. He is an international player who is currently on the senior Danish National Team roster.

   #11. Former international power forward Kevin Larsen (207-93, college: G.Washington, currently plays in Germany) managed to help Mitteldeutscher BC Weissenfels to win against the eighth-ranked Chemnitz 88-74 in the German ProA (second division) on Saturday night. Larsen scored only 2 points. Larsen has averaged so far 3.4ppg and 3.0rpg. He used to play for the Danish national team two years ago.

   #12. Former U18 international guard August Haas (185-97, currently plays college basketball in the States) couldn't help the Wisc.-Milwaukee in their game against the Northern Kentucky University in the NCAA. Haas cannot count Tuesday's game as one of the best ones. He recorded only 2 points and added 5 assists in 28 minutes. His team lost 53-59. Haas has averaged so far 5.1ppg, 2.8rpg and 3.8apg in 34 games. He used to play for the Danish U18 national team back in 2015.

   #13. Former U18 international guard Mikkel Andersen (194-95, currently plays in Norway) contributed to an easy victory against the closely-ranked Asker Aliens crushing them 93-69 in the Norwegian BLNO last Saturday. Andersen recorded 5 points. Andersen has averaged so far 4.5ppg and 1.6rpg. He used to play for the Danish U18 national team three years ago.


One more player who has never been selected to any of national teams, but has Danish passport:

   #1. Tencho Tenchev (202-F-93, currently plays in Bulgaria) contributed to Beroe's victory against one of league's weakest teams Yambol (4-14) 82-72 in the Bulgarian NBL in Saturday night's game. Tenchev scored 9 points. BC Beroe (13-6) is placed second in the NBL. It was his team's fourth consecutive victory in a row. Tenchev's total stats this season are: 7.1ppg and 1.6rpg. He has a dual citizenship: Danish and Bulgarian. Despite Tenchev's Danish passport, he previously played for the Bulgarian U20 national team and is probably not eligible to play for the Danish team.
