Nikola Vucevic
Nikola Vucevic
   #1. This week's number one is an international center Nikola Vucevic (210-90, college: USC, currently plays in NBA), who plays in the NBA.

He had a double-double by scoring 20 points and getting 29 rebounds. Vucevic also added 2 blocks and 3 steals in 47 minutes on the court; quite an impressive performance considering it's only his second season in pro basketball. It was Magic's seventh consecutive loss in a row. Vucevic has individually a very good year with high stats. He averages: 11.1ppg, 10.5rpg, 1.5apg, 1.1bpg, 2FGP: 50.9% and FT: 63.8% in the 32 games he played so far. Vucevic is currently a member of the Montenegrin senior national team.

He is a former U20 international player as three years ago he still played for the Montenegrin national team.

   #11. U21 international power forward Marko Todorovic (210-92, currently plays in Euroleague) helped his Spanish team Regal FC Barcelona win their game against the seventh-ranked Fenerbahce Ulker crushing them 100-78 in the Euroleague in Friday night's game. Todorovic recorded only 2 points in 2 minutes on the court. Todorovic has averaged so far 1.8ppg and 1.7rpg in the nine games. He plays currently for the Montenegrin U21 national team.

   #12. International power forward Ivan Maras (207-86, another player represented by Beo Basket, currently plays in Cyprus) couldn't help Etha in their game against AEK in the Cypriot Division A.

   #13. International swingman Suad Sehovic (196-87, currently plays in Ukraine) couldn't help Khimik in their game against Kryvbasbasket in the Ukrainian Superleague. Sehovic cannot count Friday's game as one of the best ones. He scored only 3 points. His team was badly defeated by 16 points 89-73. This season Sehovic has relatively solid stats: 11.9ppg, 4.7rpg and 1.2apg. He is also Montenegrin national team player.

   #14. Former international guard Vujadin Subotic (198-81, currently plays in Cyprus) faced previously mentioned Ivan Maras in the Cypriot Division A last game.

He used to play for the Montenegrin national team back in 2008.

   #15. U21 international power forward Radosav Spasojevic (204-92, another player represented by Interperformances, currently plays in Austria), who plays in the Austrian A Bundesliga couldn't help Arkadia Lions (1-13) in their last game on Thursday. Despite Spasojevic's very good performance the bottom-ranked Arkadia Lions were crushed 99-73 in Graz by the higher-ranked UBSC (#8). He was the top scorer with 16 points. Spasojevic also added 4 rebounds. Spasojevic is ranked fourth on the list of the top scorers in the league. This season he has very high stats. Spasojevic averages: 19.1ppg, 6.1rpg and 2.6apg. He is also in the roster of the Montenegrin U21 national team.


The list of other players, who all have Montenegrin passport but never been selected to any of Montenegrin national teams:

   #1. Nikola Mirotic (207-F/C-91, currently plays in Euroleague) led his Spanish team Real Madrid to a victory over the eighth-ranked Brose Baskets Bamberg (0-2) 82-67 in the Euroleague on Thursday night. He was the best player in that game. Mirotic scored 19 points and grabbed 8 rebounds in 22 minutes. Real Madrid (2-0) is placed first in group E. Mirotic has relatively good stats this year: 12.5ppg and 5.1rpg in the 12 games he played so far. He has a dual citizenship: Montenegrin and Spanish. Despite Mirotic's Montenegrin passport, he previously played for the Spanish U20 national team and is probably not eligible to play for the Montenegrin team.

   #2. Miljan Pavkovic (178-G-81, agency: Beo Basket, currently plays in Czech Republic) contributed to a CEZ Nymburk's victory against the seventh-ranked Levice (9-10) 77-63 in the Czech Republic NBL last Thursday. Pavkovic scored 8 points and added 7 passes. CEZ Basketball Nymburk (18-1) is placed first in the NBL. Pavkovic is ranked fourth on the list of the best passers in the league. His total stats this season are: 5.2ppg, 2.3rpg, 4.1apg and 1.2spg.

   #3. Nikola Dragovic (206-F-87, college: UCLA, currently plays in Italy), who plays in the Italian SerieA could not help Air Avellino (3-10) to beat Juvecaserta (6-7). He recorded 6 points and grabbed 5 rebounds in 17 minutes. Air Avellino was edged in an overtime 86-84 on the road by the higher-ranked (#10) Juvecaserta. It was Air Avellino's fourth consecutive loss in a row. This year Dragovic has relatively solid stats: 10.3ppg, 5.6rpg and 1.2spg in the 13 games. He is another player who holds two passports: Serbian and Montenegrin. Despite Dragovic's Montenegrin nationality, he previously played for the Serbian university national team and probably cannot be called to the Montenegrin team.
