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


Maris Laksa
Maris Laksa
   #1. This week's number one is former international forward Maris Laksa (205-81, college: Providence, currently plays in Estonia). He led BC Rakvere to a victory over one of league's weakest teams Tln Kalev (3-11) crushing them 103-82 in the Estonian KML in Friday night's game. Laksa was MVP of the game. He scored 26 points (!!!) and added 3 assists in 32 minutes on the court. BC Rakvere Tarvas (13-4) is placed first in the KML. It was his team's eighth consecutive victory in a row. They will play only one more game in the Regular Season. And that game will be critical. Laksa is ranked first on the list of the top scorers in the league with 17.1ppg. He also averaged so far 2.9rpg, 1.5apg, 1.4spg, 2FGP: 55.9%(52-93), 3FGP: 42.0% and FT: 75.6% in the 14 games he played so far. Laksa played for the Latvian senior national team ten years ago.

Andris Biedrins
   #2. Second place goes to former international center Andris Biedrins (213-86, currently plays in NBA). He managed to help Golden State Warriors to win against the Philadelphia 76ers (15-18) 96-89 in the NBA last Friday. Biedrins recorded only 3 points and grabbed 7 rebounds. The Golden State Warriors have a solid 22-10 record this season. It was his team's fourth consecutive victory in a row. It's Biedrins' ninth year with the team.

   #3. The Latvian player who performed third best last week abroad was former U18 international guard Edgars Cunda (195-84, currently plays in Estonia). He was the main contributor in Valga's victory against the closely-ranked KK Parnu (5-8) 73-63 in the Estonian KML on Friday night. Cunda was the best player in that game. He scored 16 points, grabbed 4 rebounds and dished 5 assists in 34 minutes. Valga/Maks&Moorits (6-7) is placed fourth in the KML. They ended the series of three consecutive loses.
