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


Goran Dragic
Goran Dragic
   #1. This week's number one is an international point guard Goran Dragic (194-86), who plays in the NBA. He could not help the Houston Rockets (32-31) in their last game. Despite Dragic's very good performance the Houston Rockets lost in an overtime 99-105 on the road to the New Orleans Hornets. He was the top scorer with 23 points. Dragic also added 5 rebounds and dished 8 assists in 38 minutes on the court. It was Rockets' sixth consecutive loss in a row. There are only three games left until the end of the NBA Regular Season. So now every game will be critical. Dragic has individually a very good year with high stats. He averages: 11.6ppg, 2.5rpg, 5.2apg, 1.3spg, 2FGP: 52.4%, 3FGP: 34.8% and FT: 79.8% in the 63 games he played so far. Dragic is currently a member of the Slovenian senior national team.

Jaka Lakovic
Jaka Lakovic
   #2. Second place goes to an experienced international guard Jaka Lakovic (186-78), who plays in the Turkish TBL. He was not able to help Galatasaray (24-5) in their last game on Saturday. Despite Lakovic's very good performance the league leader Galatasaray was defeated in a double overtime (!!!) 106-99 in Akdeniz by the much lower-ranked Mersin (#9). He was the top scorer with 21 points. Lakovic also added 5 rebounds and 7 assists (made all of his eight free throws). His team will play only one more game in the Regular Season. And now that game is very crucial. It's Lakovic's first season with the team. Lakovic has relatively good stats this year: 11.3ppg, 1.8rpg, 3.2apg, 2FGP: 43.9%, 3FGP: 47.0%(63-134) and FT: 90.7%(78-86). He is in the roster of the Slovenian senior national team.

Emir Preldzic
Emir Preldzic
   #3. The Slovenian player who performed third best last week abroad was former international forward Emir Preldzic (205-87, agency: Beo Basket). Preldzic contributed to a Fenerbahce Ulker's victory against the 12th-ranked Hacettepe University (11-18) 81-68 in the Turkish TBL on Saturday night. He recorded 10 points, 6 rebounds and 3 assists in 25 minutes. Fenerbahce Ulker Istanbul (20-8) is placed fifth in the TBL. There are only two games left until the end of the Regular Season. So now every game will be important. Preldzic is one of the most experienced players in a team as it's his fifth year in Fenerbahce Ulker's roster. This season Preldzic has relatively solid stats: 10.3ppg, 4.6rpg, 3.9apg, 2FGP: 51.2%, 3FGP: 36.8% and FT: 73.8% in the 25 games. He has a dual citizenship: Slovenian and Turkish. Despite Preldzic played previously for the Turkish national team, he played also for the Slovenian national team in 2008.

Mirza Begic
Mirza Begic
   #4. Center Mirza Begic (217-85) helped Real Madrid win their game against the eighth-ranked Meridiano Alicante (15-13) 91-87 in the Spanish ACB in Sunday night's game. Begic scored 8 points and blocked 2 blocks. Real Madrid (22-7) is placed second in the ACB. Begic is currently fourth on the list of best blockers. His overall stats this season are: 5.9ppg, 4.3rpg and 1.6bpg. Begic is another player who holds two passports: Bosnia and Herzegovina and Slovenian. Despite he played previously for the Bosnia and Herzegovina national team, Begic is currently in the Slovenian national team roster.

Jurica Golemac
Jurica Golemac
   #5. Former international forward Jurica Golemac (209-77, also represented by Beo Basket), who plays in the Italian SerieA was not able to secure a victory for Air Avellino (13-15) in their last game. Despite his very good performance Air Avellino lost 67-76 in Caserta to the lower-ranked (#13) Otto. Golemac was the top scorer with 16 points. He also added 8 rebounds and dished 3 assists in 31 minutes. It was Air Avellino's third consecutive loss in a row. There are only four games left until the end of the Regular Season. So now every game will be extremely important. Golemac has reliable stats this year: 11.9ppg, 4.8rpg, 2.4apg and 1.6spg in the 28 games. He has both Slovenian and Croatian nationalities. Despite Golemac played previously for the Croatian national team, he is currently in the Slovenian national team roster.

Sasha Vujacic
Sasha Vujacic
   #6. Guard Sasha Vujacic (200-84) couldn't help Anadolu Efes (22-6) in their game against Turk Telekom (12-17) in the Turkish TBL. Vujacic recorded 9 points, 4 rebounds and 3 assists. But Anadolu Efes was defeated in an overtime 95-87 in Ankara by the much lower-ranked Turk Telekom (#10). There are only two games left until the end of the Regular Season. Vujacic averaged so far 12.7ppg, 2.9rpg, 2.3apg and 1.2spg.
