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. Taylor could not help the Charlotte Bobcats (7-20) in their last game on Wednesday. Despite his good performance the Charlotte Bobcats were badly defeated 121-104 on the road by the Phoenix Suns. Taylor scored 10 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. This season he averages: 6.8ppg, 2.6rpg, 2FGP: 42.1%, 3FGP: 30.6% and FT: 81.1%. Taylor is a naturalized American. He played for the Swedish U20 national team four years ago. Strangely Taylor has never played in Sweden.

Thomas Massamba
Thomas Massamba
   #2. Second place goes to an international point guard Thomas Massamba (185-85, currently plays in Bulgaria). He contributed to an easy victory against the league outsider U20 (0-10) crushing them 96-63 in a derby game in the Bulgarian NBL on Saturday night. Massamba scored 8 points, had 6 boards, passed 10 assists and added 5 steals in 29 minutes. Lukoil Academik Sofia (9-1) is placed first in the NBL. Massamba is ranked seventh on the list of the best passers in the league with 4.2apg. This year his other stats are: 4.9ppg, 3.2rpg, 2FGP: 57.9%(11-19), 3FGP: 30.8% and FT: 78.9% in the 10 games he played so far. Massamba is in the roster of the Swedish senior national team.

Chris Czerapowicz
Chris Czerapowicz
   #3. The Swedish player who performed third best last week abroad was U20 international guard Chris Czerapowicz (201-91, currently plays college basketball in the States). Czerapowicz led Davidson to an easy victory against the Univ. of N.Carolina-Wilmington 77-61 in the NCAA last Saturday. He recorded 14 points and grabbed 5 rebounds in 28 minutes. The Davidson College has 2-0 conference record this season. This year Czerapowicz's overall stats are: 5.6ppg, 3.0rpg, 2FGP: 52.4% in the nine games.

Jerebko recorded only 3 points and grabbed 4 rebounds. The Detroit Pistons have rather weak 9-21 record this season. Jerebko has been at the team for four years. His total stats this year are: 5.6ppg and 3.0rpg. Jerebko is a naturalized American. He is also Swedish national team player. Apparently Jerebko has never played in Sweden.

Sebastian Norman
   #7. U20 international forward Sebastian Norman (206-92, currently studies in the States) was not able to help the Lamar in their game against the University of Texas-Pan American (0-0) in the NCAA. He cannot count Saturday's game as one of the best ones. Norman recorded only 3 points in 6 minutes on the court. The Lamar lost 70-75 in Edinburg, TX to the University of Texas-Pan American.

He was MVP of the game. Lampe recorded 19 points and grabbed 7 rebounds in 22 minutes. Caja Laboral Vitoria (10-3) is placed second in the ACB. It was his team's third consecutive victory in a row. Lampe has relatively good stats this year: 11.4ppg and 5.0rpg in the 13 games he played so far. He has a dual citizenship: Polish and Swedish.

   #2.
