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


Kristjan Kitsing
Kristjan Kitsing
   #1. This week's number one is an international forward Kristjan Kitsing (205-90, agency: Octagon Europe, currently plays in Denmark). He led Bakken to a victory over the closely-ranked Svendborg (13-15) crushing them 109-74 in the Danish Ligaen in Thursday night's game. Kitsing was MVP of the game. He scored 16 points and blocked 3 blocks in 20 minutes on the court. It was the game of the round between two top 4 ranked teams. Bakken Bears (23-4) is placed first in the Ligaen. It was his team's fifth consecutive victory in a row. They will play only one more game in the Regular Season. And that game will be critical. Kitsing has relatively good stats this year: 10.6ppg, 3.8rpg, 2FGP: 59.5%(69-116), 3FGP: 33.8% and FT: 88.5% in 22 games he played so far. He is currently a member of the Estonian senior national team.

Siim-Sander Vene
Siim-Sander Vene
   #2. Second place goes to former international small forward Siim-Sander Vene (201-90, currently plays in VTB United League). Vene could not help BC Nizhny Novgorod (6-14) to beat Enisey (9-10). He scored 8 points and added 4 passes. BC Nizhny Novgorod was defeated 93-80 on the road by the higher-ranked Enisey (#7). There are only four games left until the end of the VTB United League Regular Season. So now every game is very crucial. It's Vene's first season with the team. This year Vene has relatively solid stats: 10.2ppg, 2.8rpg, 2.0apg, 2FGP: 57.4%(54-94), 3FGP: 31.4% and FT: 76.3%. He played for the Estonian national team in 2015.

Erik Dorbek
   #3. The Estonian player who performed third best last week abroad was an experienced former international swingman Erik Dorbek (196-82, currently plays in Australia). Dorbek was the main contributor in a Norths Soul Sports Bears' victory against the 11th-ranked Sutherland Sharks (0-2) 77-71 in the Australian State League (second division) on Saturday night. He was the best player in that game. Dorbek scored 23 points and grabbed 9 rebounds in 33 minutes. Norths Soul Sports Bearsare placed in WARATAH group. Dorbek has individually a very good year with high stats. He averages: 25.5ppg, 7.5rpg, 2.0spg, 2FGP: 63.3%(19-30), 3FGP: 33.3% and FT: 83.3% in two games.
