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 (13-43) in their last game on Saturday. Despite his very good performance the Charlotte Bobcats were defeated 113-99 on the road by the Denver Nuggets. Taylor scored 18 points and blocked 2 blocks. This season Taylor averages: 6.5ppg, 2.0rpg, 3FGP: 34.2% and FT: 74.6%. He is a naturalized American. Taylor played for the Swedish U20 national team five years ago. Strangely he has never played in Sweden.

Jonas Jerebko
Jonas Jerebko
   #2. Second place goes to an international power forward Jonas Jerebko (206-87, currently plays in NBA), who plays in the NBA. Jerebko was not able to help the Detroit Pistons (22-36) in their last game. Despite his good performance the Detroit Pistons lost 91-105 in Memphis to the Grizzlies. Jerebko was the second best scorer with 13 points. He also added 4 assists in only a mere 11 minutes. It's Jerebko's fourth season with the team. This year Jerebko's overall stats are: 5.2ppg, 2.9rpg, 2FGP: 41.3%, 3FGP: 28.9% and FT: 71.0% in the 25 games he played so far. He is a naturalized American. Jerebko 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 contributed to a Lukoil Academik's victory against the closely-ranked Balkan (12-6) 82-71 in the Bulgarian NBL in Saturday night's game. He scored 9 points, grabbed 4 rebounds and dished 4 assists. It was the game of the round between two top 4 ranked teams. Lukoil Academik Sofia (16-2) is placed first in the NBL. It was his team's sixth consecutive victory in a row. The Regular Season already ended. Massamba's total stats this season are: 6.1ppg, 2.6rpg, 3.8apg, 1.3spg, 2FGP: 52.4%, 3FGP: 35.5% and FT: 78.6%.

Andreas Schreiber
Andreas Schreiber
   #4. Center Andreas Schreiber (206-87, agency: Two Points, college: Pennsylvania, currently plays in United Kingdom) led Plymouth Raiders to a victory against the closely-ranked Durham Wildcats 104-100 in the British BBL last Friday. Schreiber recorded 17 points, 7 rebounds and 3 blocks in 27 minutes; quite an impressive performance considering it's only his second season in pro basketball. It was the game of the round between two top 4 ranked teams. UCP Marjon Plymouth Raiders (16-8) is placed third in the BBL. Schreiber has relatively good stats this year: 10.7ppg, 5.1rpg and 2.3bpg in the seven games. He is a naturalized American. Schreiber is also Swedish national team player.

Chris Czerapowicz
Chris Czerapowicz
   #5. Former U20 international guard Chris Czerapowicz (201-91, currently plays college basketball in the States) helped Davidson win their game against the The Citadel (4-12) 72-57 in the NCAA on Saturday night. He scored 14 points and grabbed 4 rebounds. The Davidson College has a very good 15-1 conference record this season. It was his team's 11th consecutive victory in a row. There are only two games left until the end of the NCAA Regular Season. So now every game will be critical. This season Czerapowicz has relatively solid stats: 10.7ppg, 5.1rpg and 2.3bpg. He used to play for the Swedish U20 national team two years ago.

Viktor Gaddefors
Viktor Gaddefors
   #6. Small forward Viktor Gaddefors (203-92, currently plays in Italy) was not able to secure a victory for SAIE3 BO (7-12) in their game against Cimberio Varese (16-3) in the Italian SerieA, despite his good performance in Sunday night's game. Gaddefors was the top scorer with 10 points. He also added 4 rebounds in 28 minutes. But SAIE3 BO was badly defeated 78-61 in Varese by the leading Cimberio. This year Gaddefors' total stats are: 4.5ppg and 2.8rpg in the 19 games. He is an international player who is currently on the senior Swedish National Team roster.

Jonathan Skjoldebrand
   #7. International power forward Jonathan Skjoldebrand (204-83, currently plays in Israel) couldn't help Hapoel Tel-Aviv (7-10) in their game against Galil Gilboa (6-11) in the Israeli Winner League. Skjoldebrand scored 7 points and grabbed 9 rebounds. Hapoel Tel-Aviv was defeated 82-67 in Rosh Pina by the one of league's weakest teams Galil Gilboa (#11). Skjoldebrand has averaged so far 9.0ppg, 4.9rpg and 1.2apg. He is also Swedish national team player.

Erik Rush
Erik Rush
   #8. Small forward Erik Rush (196-88, college: Montana St., currently plays in Italy) faced previously mentioned Viktor Gaddefors in the Italian SerieA last game. Rush managed to help Cimberio Varese in a victory against the 11th-ranked SAIE3 BO (7-12) 78-61. He recorded only 2 points in 16 minutes. Rush has averaged so far 4.1ppg and 2.1rpg in the 18 games. He is a naturalized American. Rush plays currently for the Swedish national team. Interesting that he has never played in Sweden.

Jonathan Person
Jonathan Person
   #9. International point guard Jonathan Person (192-93, currently plays in Germany) couldn't help Oettinger Rockets Gotha (8-14) in their game against MLP Academics Heidelberg (0-0) in the German ProA (second division). He recorded 6 points. Oettinger Rockets Gotha was crushed 84-61 in Heidelberg by the much higher-ranked MLP Academics (#4). Person has averaged so far 5.3ppg, 1.5rpg and 1.7apg.

Sebastian Norman
Sebastian Norman
   #10. Forward Sebastian Norman (206-92, currently studies in the States) couldn't help the Lamar (1-13) in their game against the Texas State University at San Marcos (3-11) in the NCAA. Norman cannot count Saturday's game as one of the best ones. He scored only 1 points. The Lamar was defeated 74-61 at home by the Texas State University at San Marcos. It was Lamar's third consecutive loss in a row. There are only four games left until the end of the NCAA Regular Season. So now every game is very crucial. Norman has averaged so far 4.1ppg, 6.7rpg and 1.1apg. He is U20 international player who is currently on the Swedish National Team roster.


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 Caja Laboral (17-4) in their last game. Despite his very good performance Caja Laboral lost 70-84 on the road to the much lower-ranked (#10) Blusens Monbus. Lampe was the top scorer with 18 points in 23 minutes. It was Caja Laboral's first loss after ten consecutive victories. Lampe has relatively good stats this year: 13.3ppg and 5.2rpg in the 21 games he played so far. He has a dual citizenship: Polish and Swedish.

   #2. Elias Westerlund (197-F-88, currently plays in Norway), who plays in the Norwegian BLNO was not able to help Asker Aliens (7-15) in their last game on Wednesday. Despite Westerlund's very good performance Asker Aliens was defeated 103-88 in Oslo by the second-ranked Centrum. He was the top scorer with 32 points. Westerlund also added 5 rebounds and 3 assists. There are only two games left until the end of the Regular Season. So now every game will be critical. Westerlund belongs to league's top scorers and is ranked #3. He has individually a very good season with high stats. Westerlund averages: 21.9ppg, 4.9rpg and 1.1apg.

   #3. Challe Barton (190-G, currently plays college basketball in the States) was not able to secure a victory for the Oregon St. (3-11) in their game against the The University of Washington (7-8) in the NCAA. He scored 8 points in 29 minutes. The Oregon St. lost 62-72 in Seattle, WA to the The University of Washington. It was Oregon St.'s third consecutive loss in a row. There are only three games left until the end of the NCAA Regular Season. So now every game is very crucial. Barton has very impressive stats this year: 21.9ppg, 4.9rpg and 1.1apg in the 18 games.

   #4. Hussein Tawbeh (198-F-82, currently plays in Lebanon) managed to help Hoops Club in a victory against the league outsider Antranik (2-14) crushing them 94-74 in a derby game in the Lebanese Division A in Saturday night's game. Tawbeh scored only 2 points and grabbed 5 rebounds in 11 minutes. Hoops Club (4-12) is placed eighth in the Division A. It was his team's first victory after four consecutive loses.
