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


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.

Despite his good performance the Charlotte Bobcats were defeated in an overtime 118-112 on the road by the Portland Trail Blazers. Taylor recorded 11 points and grabbed 4 rebounds. But this is still an early stage of the season and everything may happen. It's Taylor's first year with the team. He has relatively good stats this season: 8.0ppg, 2.4rpg, 2FGP: 48.1%, 3FGP: 32.6% and FT: 80.8%. Taylor is a naturalized American. He played for the Swedish U20 national team four years ago. Strangely Taylor has never played in Sweden.

Sluc Nancy Basket Pro (4-6) is placed 11th in the ProA. But the season just started, so everything may happen.
