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


Sasha Vujacic
Sasha Vujacic
   #1. This week's number one is former international shooting guard Sasha Vujacic (201-84, currently plays in Euroleague). He led his Turkish team Anadolu Efes to a victory over the closely-ranked Armani Milano (3-4) 77-71 in the Euroleague in Friday night's game. Vujacic was MVP of the game. He scored 29 points (!!!) and added 3 passes in 34 minutes on the court. Anadolu Efes Istanbul (4-3) is placed third in group C. There are only three games left until the end of the Euroleague Regular Season. So now every game will be critical. Vujacic has relatively good stats this year: 12.9ppg, 2.7rpg, 1.3apg, 2FGP: 33.3%, 3FGP: 56.0%(14-25) and FT: 72.2% in the seven games he played so far. He played for the Slovenian senior national team three years ago.

Erazem Lorbek

   #2. Second place goes to an international power forward Erazem Lorbek (209-84, college: Michigan St., currently plays in Spain). Lorbek was the major contributor in a 3-point Regal FC Barcelona's victory against the 16th-ranked Baloncesto Fuenlabrada (1-8) 79-76 in the Spanish ACB last Sunday. He scored 16 points and grabbed 4 rebounds. Regal FC Barcelona (5-3) is placed seventh in the ACB. But this is still an early stage of the season and everything may happen.

   #3. The Slovenian player who performed third best last week abroad was an international point guard Goran Dragic (190-86, currently plays in NBA), who plays in the NBA.
