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


Omar-Sharif Cook
Omar-Sharif Cook
   #1. This week's number one is an international point guard Omar-Sharif Cook (186-82, agency: Beo Basket, college: St.John's). He led Armani Milano to a victory over the 11th-ranked Benetton Treviso (13-18) 84-76 in the Italian SerieA in Wednesday night's game. Cook was MVP of the game. He scored 23 points, made 6 passes and 3 steals in 34 minutes on the court. EA7 Emporio Armani Milano (21-10) is placed third in the SerieA. It was his team's seventh consecutive victory in a row. They will play only one more game in the Regular Season. And that game will be critical. Cook is currently fourth on the league's list of best passers with 5.0apg. He also averaged so far 8.6ppg, 2.9rpg, 1.4spg, 2FGP: 58.3%(35-60), 3FGP: 38.3% and FT: 78.7% in the 31 games he played so far. Cook is a naturalized American. Despite he played previously for the USA national team, Cook is currently a member of the Montenegrin senior national team. Strangely he has never played in Montenegro.

Nikola Pekovic
Nikola Pekovic
   #2. Second place goes to an international center Nikola Pekovic (210-86, also represented by Beo Basket), who plays in the NBA. Pekovic could not help the Minnesota Timberwolves (26-40) in their last game on Thursday. Despite his very good performance the Minnesota Timberwolves were crushed 131-102 on the road by the Denver Nuggets. Pekovic recorded a double-double by scoring 18 points and getting 10 rebounds. The Regular Season already ended in the NBA. It's Pekovic's first season with the team. He has individually a very good year with high stats. Pekovic averages: 13.9ppg, 7.4rpg, 2FGP: 56.4%(256-454) and FT: 74.3%. Despite he played previously for the USA national team, Pekovic is currently a member of the Montenegrin senior national team.

Nikola Mirotic
Nikola Mirotic
   #3. The Montenegrin player who performed third best last week abroad was an international power forward Nikola Mirotic (207-91). He was the major contributor in a 1-point Real Madrid's victory against the 16th-ranked UCAM Murcia (12-21) 80-79 in the Spanish ACB on Sunday night. Mirotic scored 15 points and grabbed 4 rebounds in 25 minutes. Real Madrid (25-8) is placed second in the ACB. It was his team's fourth consecutive victory in a row. They will play only one more game in the Regular Season. And now that game is very crucial. This year Mirotic's overall stats are: 8.9ppg, 4.4rpg, 2FGP: 52.1%, 3FGP: 36.7% and FT: 69.0% in the 33 games. He has a dual citizenship: Montenegrin and Spanish.

Vucevic scored 9 points and grabbed 12 rebounds. But the Philadelphia 76ers were crushed 108-86 in Detroit by the Pistons. They ended the series of three consecutive victories.

He also added 3 steals in 26 minutes. There are only four games left until the end of the Second Stage. So now every game will be extremely important. This year Subotic's total stats are: 6.8ppg and 2.3rpg in the eight games. Despite he played previously for the Spanish national team, Subotic is currently in the Montenegrin national team roster.

Suad Sehovic
Suad Sehovic
