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


Nicolas de Jong
Nicolas de Jong
   #1. This week's number one is an international center Nicolas de Jong (210-88, currently plays in France). de Jong led Chalons-Reims to a victory over the ninth-ranked Le Portel (12-13) 77-68 in the French ProA on Friday night. He was MVP of the game. de Jong scored 21 points and grabbed 4 rebounds in 27 minutes on the court. Champagne Chalons-Reims Basket (9-16) is placed 14th in the ProA. It's de Jong's first season with the team. He has relatively good stats this year: 12.4ppg, 3.0rpg, 2FGP: 65.5%(114-174), 3FGP: 27.3% and FT: 65.8% in 23 games he played so far. de Jong is currently a member of the Dutch senior national team.

Thomas van der Mars
Thomas van der Mars
   #2. Second place goes to an international center Thomas van der Mars (208-90, college: Portland, currently plays in Estonia). He could not help Rapla (16-10) in their last game on Tuesday. Despite van der Mars' good performance Rapla was defeated 76-72 on the road by the lower-ranked TLU/Kalev (#6). He scored 10 points and grabbed 9 rebounds. van der Mars' team will play only one more game in the Regular Season. And that game will be critical. van der Mars has individually a very good season with high stats. He averages: 16.6ppg, 12.5rpg, 2FGP: 63.7%(172-270) and FT: 70.2%. van der Mars is in the roster of the Dutch senior national team.

   #3. The Dutch player who performed third best last week abroad was an international guard Charlon Kloof (190-90, agency: Octagon Europe, college: St.Bonaventure, currently plays in FYR Macedonia). He contributed to an easy victory against the third-ranked Rabotnicki (1-2) 87-68 in a derby game in the FYR Macedonian Prva Liga last Saturday. Kloof scored 12 points, had 5 rebounds and dished 3 assists in 28 minutes. It was the game of the round between two top 3 ranked teams in group Places 1-6. KK MZT Skopje Aerodrom (3-0) is placed second. So far his team won all three games in the Second Stage. But this is still an early stage of the season and everything may happen. This year Kloof's overall stats are: 9.3ppg, 3.7rpg, 2.7apg, 2FGP: 53.3%, 3FGP: 16.7% and FT: 85.7% in three games. He has a dual citizenship: Surinamese and Dutch.

He scored 17 points and grabbed 6 rebounds. It was the game of the round between two top 4 ranked teams. Wellington Saints (3-0) are placed first in the NBL. So far his team won all three games in the Regular Season. But the season just started, so everything may happen. This year Duinker has very high stats.
