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


Robin Smeulders
Robin Smeulders
   #1. This week's number one is an international forward Robin Smeulders (207-87, agency: Court Side, college: Portland, currently plays in EuroChallenge). He was the major contributor in a EWE Baskets' victory against the fourth-ranked Kormend (0-3) crushing them 95-64 in the EuroChallenge in Wednesday night's game. Smeulders scored 15 points and grabbed 7 rebounds in a mere 19 minutes on the court; quite an impressive performance considering it's only his third season in pro basketball. EWE Baskets Oldenburg (3-0) is placed first in group F. So far his team won all three games in the Regular Season. There are only three games left until the end of the EuroChallenge Regular Season. So now every game will be critical. Smeulders has relatively good stats this year: 11.3ppg, 5.7rpg, 1.3apg, 2FGP: 66.7%(12-18) in the three games he played so far. He has a dual citizenship: Dutch and German. Smeulders is currently a member of the Dutch senior national team.

Henk Norel

   #2. Second place goes to an international center Henk Norel (214-87, currently plays in Spain). He led CAI Zaragoza to an easy victory against the 16th-ranked Cajasol (1-7) crushing them 86-55 in the Spanish ACB last Sunday. Norel scored 12 points and grabbed 7 rebounds. CAI Zaragoza (5-3) is placed fifth in the ACB. It was his team's third consecutive victory in a row. But this is still an early stage of the season and everything may happen. It's Norel's first year with the team. This season he has relatively solid stats: 10.3ppg, 6.0rpg, 2FGP: 56.5%(35-62) and FT: 54.5%. Norel is in the roster of the Dutch senior national team.

Schaftenaar recorded 6 points and grabbed 6 rebounds in 18 minutes. Leche Rio Breogan Lugo (4-3) is placed sixth in the LEB Gold. But there are still lots of games to play and it's a long way to go. This year Schaftenaar's total stats are: 6.5ppg and 5.0rpg in the six games. He used to play for the Dutch national team two years ago.

Charlon Kloof
