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


Jeffery Taylor
Jeffery Taylor
   #1. This week's number one is former U20 international forward Jeffery Taylor (200-89, college: Vanderbilt, currently plays in NBA), who plays in the NBA. He could not help the Charlotte Bobcats (7-5) in their last game. Despite Taylor's very good performance the Charlotte Bobcats lost 91-101 on the road to the Atlanta Hawks. He was the second best scorer with 16 points. Taylor also added 3 steals in 36 minutes on the court; quite an impressive performance considering it's only his first season in pro basketball. But this is still an early stage of the season and everything may happen. It's Taylor's first year with the team. Taylor has relatively good stats this season: 7.4ppg, 2.5rpg, 2FGP: 42.9%, 3FGP: 36.0% and FT: 75.0% in the 11 games he played so far. He is a naturalized American. Taylor played for the Swedish U20 national team four years ago. Strangely he has never played in Sweden.

Erik Rush
Erik Rush
   #2. Second place goes to an international small forward Erik Rush (196-88, college: Montana St., currently plays in Italy). Rush contributed to a 1-point Cimberio Varese's victory against the closely-ranked Banco di Sardegna Sassari (6-2) 85-84 in the Italian SerieA on Sunday night. He scored 9 points in only 12 minutes. It was the game of the round between two top 4 ranked teams. Cimberio Varese (8-0) is placed first in the SerieA. So far his team won all eight games in the Regular Season. But the season is still in it's first stage and everything can happen. It's Rush's first year with the team. This season Rush averages: 3.1ppg, 1.3rpg, 2FGP: 16.7% in the seven games. He is a naturalized American. Rush is in the roster of the Swedish senior national team. Apparently he has never played in Sweden.

Thomas Massamba
Thomas Massamba
   #3. The Swedish player who performed third best last week abroad was an international point guard Thomas Massamba (185-85, currently plays in Bulgaria). Massamba managed to help Lukoil Academik Sofia to win against the sixth-ranked Chernomorets (3-3) crushing them 121-61 in the Bulgarian NBL in Saturday night's game. He scored 5 points and added 6 passes. Lukoil Academik Sofia (6-0) is placed first in the NBL. So far his team won all six games in the Regular Season. There are only three games left until the end of the Regular Season. So now every game will be critical. It's Massamba's first season with the team. Massamba's overall stats this year are: 4.2ppg, 2.7rpg, 3.7apg, 3FGP: 14.3% and FT: 71.4%. He is also a member of the Swedish senior national team.

Brice Massamba
Brice Massamba
   #4. Power forward Brice Massamba (208-88, college: UNLV, currently plays in Croatia) contributed to a Djuro Djakovic's victory against the tenth-ranked KK Dubrovnik (1-6) 90-77 in the Croatian A1 on Saturday night. Massamba recorded 8 points and grabbed 4 rebounds. KK Djuro Djakovic Slavonski Brod (4-4) is placed sixth in the A1. Massamba is currently fourth on the list of best rebounders.

Joakim Kjellbom
Joakim Kjellbom
   #5. An experienced international center Joakim Kjellbom (213-79, college: N.Arizona, currently plays in Georgia) was not able to help Armia (4-1) in their game against MIA (6-0) in the Georgian Superleague. Kjellbom scored 8 points and grabbed 4 rebounds in 22 minutes. Armia lost 69-80 in a derby game to the leading MIA. They ended the series of four consecutive victories. Kjellbom is currently fifth on the list of best blockers with 1.0bpg. He also averaged so far 9.0ppg, 6.8rpg and 1.6spg in the five games. Kjellbom plays currently for the Swedish national team.

Christian Maraker
Christian Maraker
   #6. Power forward Christian Maraker (206-82, college: Pacific, currently plays in Japan) helped Panasonic Trians win their game against one of league's weakest teams Tochigi Brex (3-13) 80-72 in the Japanese JBL last Saturday. He recorded a double-double by scoring 10 points and getting the same number of rebounds. Panasonic Trians (10-6) are placed third in the JBL. Maraker's overall stats this season are: 4.3ppg and 5.1rpg. He is an international player who is currently on the senior Swedish National Team roster.

Kenny Grant
Kenny Grant
   #7. International guard Kenny Grant (188-82, college: Davidson, currently plays in EuroChallenge), who plays in France was not able to secure a victory for Sluc Nancy (1-2) in their last game. Despite Grant's good performance the third-placed Sluc Nancy lost 71-78 on the opponent's court to the second-ranked Tsmoki-Minsk in the group G of EuroChallenge. He was the second best scorer with 11 points in a mere 18 minutes. There are only three games left until the end of the EuroChallenge Regular Season. So now every game is very crucial. This year Grant's overall stats are: 4.7ppg, 1.3apg and 1.3spg in the three games. He is also Swedish national team player.

Jonas Jerebko
Jonas Jerebko
   #8. Power forward Jonas Jerebko (206-87, currently plays in NBA) couldn't help the Detroit Pistons (3-10) in their game against the Orlando Magic (5-7) in the NBA. Jerebko cannot count Wednesday's game as one of the best ones. He scored only 2 points and grabbed 4 rebounds. The Detroit Pistons were badly defeated 90-74 in Orlando by the Magic. Jerebko has been at the team for four years. Jerebko's total stats this season are: 5.8ppg and 2.9rpg. He is a naturalized American. Jerebko plays currently for the Swedish national team. Interesting that he has never played in Sweden.

Jonathan Skjoldebrand
Jonathan Skjoldebrand
   #9. International power forward Jonathan Skjoldebrand (204-83, agency: Ronsport, currently plays in Israel) helped Hapoel Tel-Aviv win their game against the league outsider Galil Gilboa (0-6) 72-62 in the Israeli Winner League last Monday. Skjoldebrand scored only 4 points in 25 minutes. Hapoel Tel-Aviv (4-2) is placed fifth in the Winner League. This year Skjoldebrand has relatively solid stats: 12.5ppg and 4.7rpg in the six games.

It was his first game for Vendee Challans this season. Schreiber is an international player who is currently on the senior Swedish National Team roster.

   #11. U20 international guard Chris Czerapowicz (201-91, currently plays college basketball in the States) led Davidson to a 3-point victory against the West Virginia University 63-60 in the NCAA in Friday night's game. He scored 15 points and grabbed 9 rebounds in 33 minutes. It was his first game for Davidson this season. Czerapowicz used to play for the Swedish U20 national team last year.

   #12. International center Carl Engstrom (216-91, currently studies in the States) helped Alabama win their game against the Charleston Southern University 59-46 in the NCAA on Friday night. Engstrom scored 6 points, had 8 rebounds and made 2 blocks in 22 minutes. This year Engstrom's total stats are: 4.4ppg, 6.2rpg and 1.6apg in the five games. He is also in the roster of the Swedish national team.

   #13. International small forward Viktor Gaddefors (203-92, currently plays in Italy) couldn't help one of league's weakest teams SAIE3 BO in their game against Trenkwalder RE in the Italian SerieA. Gaddefors cannot count Sunday's game as one of the best ones. He scored only 2 points. His team was defeated 77-68. Gaddefors has averaged so far 3.4ppg and 2.1rpg. He is also Swedish national team player.

   #14. U18 international point guard Ludvig Hakanson (190-96, currently plays in Spain) couldn't help FCB Regal II in their game against Palencia Baloncesto in the Spanish LEB Gold (second division). Hakanson cannot count Sunday's game as one of the best ones. He recorded only 3 points in 10 minutes. His team lost 87-95. This year Hakanson averages just 1.5ppg in the two games. He plays currently for the Swedish U18 national team.


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

   #1. Maciej Lampe (211-F/C-85, currently plays in Spain), who plays in the Spanish ACB could not help one of league's weakest teams Caja Laboral (5-3) in their last game on Sunday. Despite Lampe's good performance Caja Laboral was defeated 77-68 at home by the higher-ranked Blusens Monbus (#9). He was the second best scorer with 12 points. Lampe also added 9 rebounds. But the season just started, so everything may happen. This year Lampe has relatively solid stats: 11.1ppg and 4.3rpg. He has a dual citizenship: Polish and Swedish.

   #2. Experienced Aleksandar Damjanovic (206-C/F-73, currently plays in Cyprus) contributed to an easy victory against the league outsider ENAD (0-4) crushing them 83-58 in the Cypriot Division A last Sunday. Damjanovic recorded 10 points in 19 minutes. Keravnos Strovolou (4-0) is placed first in the Division A. So far his team won all four games in the Regular Season. But there are still lots of games to play and it's a long way to go. This year Damjanovic's overall stats are: 5.5ppg and 2.0rpg in the four games he played so far. He is another player who holds two passports: Swedish and Bosnia and Herzegovina.

   #3. Hussein Tawbeh (198-F-82, currently plays in Lebanon), who plays in the Lebanese Division A was not able to help Hoops Club (1-4) in their last game on Saturday. Despite his good performance the bottom-ranked Hoops Club was crushed 102-78 on the road by the higher-ranked Champville (#5). Tawbeh recorded 12 points and grabbed 8 rebounds. There are only three games left until the end of the Regular Season. So now every game will be critical. Tawbeh's total stats this season are: 4.4ppg, 6.2rpg and 1.6apg. He has both Swedish and Lebanese nationalities.

   #4.
