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


Davis Bertans
Davis Bertans
   #1. This week's number one is an international small forward Davis Bertans (203-92, currently plays in Euroleague). He led his Serbian team Partizan to a 1-point victory over the closely-ranked Lietuvos rytas (1-7) 75-74 in the Euroleague in Thursday night's game. Bertans was MVP of the game. He scored 14 points and grabbed 6 rebounds in 26 minutes on the court. BC Partizan MT:S Beograd (2-7) is placed fifth in group D. Bertans' team will play only one more game in the Euroleague Regular Season. And that game will be critical. It's Bertans' first season with the team. This year he averages: 6.7ppg, 2.4rpg, 1.1spg, 2FGP: 23.5%, 3FGP: 46.7%(14-30) and FT: 62.5% in the nine games he played so far. Bertans is currently a member of the Latvian senior national team.

   #2. Second place goes to an experienced former international swingman Juris Umbrasko (197-79, currently plays in Baltic League). He was the major contributor in a BC Rakvere's victory against the sixth-ranked Tln Kalev (1-7) 95-85 in the Baltic League last Saturday. Umbrasko scored 23 points and grabbed 6 rebounds. BC Rakvere Tarvas (5-3) is placed second in group C. It was his team's fourth consecutive victory in a row. There are only two games left until the end of the Baltic League Regular Season.
