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


Beno Udrih
Beno Udrih
   #1. This week's number one is former international point guard Beno Udrih (194-82, currently plays in NBA), who plays in the NBA. He could not help the Milwaukee Bucks (7-7) in their last game. Despite Udrih's very good performance the Milwaukee Bucks lost 88-102 on the road to the New York Knicks. He was the second best scorer with 18 points in 25 minutes on the court. But this is still an early stage of the season and everything may happen. Udrih has relatively good stats this year: 8.3ppg, 2.8rpg, 3.3apg, 2FGP: 53.4%, 3FGP: 28.6% and FT: 75.0% in the 13 games he played so far. He played for the Slovenian senior national team two years ago.

   #2. Second place goes to former international power forward Gasper Vidmar (211-87, currently plays in Euroleague), who plays in Turkey.

Despite his very good performance the third-placed Besiktas was crushed 78-48 at home by the leading Regal FC Barcelona in the group D of Euroleague. Vidmar was the top scorer with 18 points. He also added 6 rebounds and made 3 blocks. There are only two games left until the end of the Euroleague Regular Season. So now every game will be critical. It's Vidmar's first season with the team. This year Vidmar averages: 7.4ppg, 5.5rpg, 1.1bpg, 2FGP: 61.0%(25-41) and FT: 25.7%. He played for the Slovenian national team in 2010.
