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


Jelena Dubljevic
Jelena Dubljevic
   #1. This week's number one is an international center Jelena Dubljevic (191-87, currently plays in Czech Republic). She led USK Praha to a victory over the eighth-ranked DSK Karlin (2-5) crushing them 96-54 in the Czech Republic ZBL in Thursday night's game. Dubljevic was MVP of the game. She had a double-double by scoring 19 points and getting 13 rebounds. Dubljevic also added 3 assists and 3 steals (was perfect 5-for-5 from the free throw line) in 30 minutes on the court. ZVVZ USK Praha (7-0) is placed first in the ZBL. So far her team won all seven games in the Regular Season. But this is still an early stage of the season and everything may happen. It's Dubljevic's first year with the team. She has relatively good stats this season: 12.6ppg, 7.4rpg, 2.4apg, 2FGP: 63.8%(30-47), 3FGP: 28.6% and FT: 91.7%(22-24) in the seven games she played so far.
