Traditionally, every week we bring you a list of the top performances of Swedish players who are currently playing abroad.


Jonas Jerebko
Jonas Jerebko
   #1. This week's number one is an international power forward Jonas Jerebko (206-87, currently plays in NBA), who plays in the NBA. He could not help the Detroit Pistons (23-38) in their last game on Monday. Despite Jerebko's very good performance the Detroit Pistons were defeated 114-103 on the road by the Atlanta Hawks. He was the second best scorer with 21 points. Jerebko also added 6 rebounds and dished 3 assists. It's Jerebko's fourth season with the team. This year he averages: 5.6ppg, 3.0rpg, 2FGP: 46.7%, 3FGP: 27.9% and FT: 68.6%. Jerebko is a naturalized American. He is currently a member of the Swedish senior national team. Strangely Jerebko has never played in Sweden.

Jeffery Taylor
Jeffery Taylor
   #2. Second place goes to former U20 international forward Jeffery Taylor (200-89, college: Vanderbilt, currently plays in NBA), who plays in the NBA. He was not able to help the Charlotte Bobcats (13-45) in their last game. Despite Taylor's very good performance the Charlotte Bobcats lost 99-113 in Denver to the Nuggets. He scored 18 points and blocked 2 blocks in 33 minutes; quite an impressive performance considering it's only Taylor's third season in pro basketball. It was Bobcats' fifth consecutive loss in a row. This year Taylor's overall stats are: 6.5ppg, 2.0rpg, 2FGP: 49.5%, 3FGP: 33.3% and FT: 74.7% in the 57 games he played so far. He is a naturalized American. Taylor played for the Swedish U20 national team in 2008. Apparently he has never played in Sweden.

Chris Czerapowicz
Chris Czerapowicz
   #3. The Swedish player who performed third best last week abroad was former U20 international guard Chris Czerapowicz (201-91, currently plays college basketball in the States). Czerapowicz led Davidson to a victory against the Elon University (13-5) 69-63 in the NCAA in Wednesday night's game. He recorded 20 points and grabbed 8 rebounds. The Davidson College has a very solid 17-1 conference record this season. It was his team's 13th consecutive victory in a row. The Regular Season already ended in the NCAA. Czerapowicz's total stats this season are: 6.5ppg, 2.0rpg, 2FGP: 49.5%, 3FGP: 33.3% and FT: 74.7%. He played for the Swedish U20 national team two years ago.

Jonathan Skjoldebrand
Jonathan Skjoldebrand
   #4. Power forward Jonathan Skjoldebrand (204-83, currently plays in Israel) was not able to secure a victory for Hapoel Tel-Aviv (7-11) in their game against Hapoel Eilat (11-7) in the Israeli Winner League. Skjoldebrand scored only 4 points and grabbed 5 rebounds in 12 minutes. Hapoel Tel-Aviv was badly defeated 76-59 in Eilat by the higher-ranked (#3) Hapoel. There are only four games left until the end of the Regular Season. So now every game will be critical. This year Skjoldebrand's total stats are: 8.7ppg, 4.9rpg and 1.2apg in the 18 games. He has a dual citizenship: Swedish and Israeli. Skjoldebrand is also Swedish national team player.

Ludvig Hakanson
Ludvig Hakanson
   #5. U18 international point guard Ludvig Hakanson (190-96, currently plays in Spain) couldn't help FCB Regal II (9-11) in their game against Palencia Baloncesto (13-7) in the Spanish LEB Gold (second division). Hakanson scored 9 points in only 14 minutes. But FCB Regal II was crushed 104-77 at home by the higher-ranked (#3) Palencia_Baloncesto. It's Hakanson's first season with the team. This year he averages only 2.8ppg in the six games. Hakanson plays currently for the Swedish U18 national team.

Elias Desport
Elias Desport
   #6. Forward Elias Desport (201-92, currently studies in the States) couldn't help the St.Peter's (3-12) in their game against the Niagara University (10-5) in the NCAA. He recorded 5 points. The St.Peter's was badly defeated 78-61 in Niagara University by the Niagara University. It was St.Peter's' fourth consecutive loss in a row. The Regular Season already ended in the NCAA. This season Desport averages only 2.8ppg. He is a former U18 international player as he played for the Swedish team three years ago.

Jonathan Person
Jonathan Person
   #7. International point guard Jonathan Person (192-93, currently plays in Germany) couldn't help Oettinger Rockets Gotha (8-16) in their game against BG Goettingen (11-7) in the German ProA (second division). Person scored only 4 points in 21 minutes. Oettinger Rockets Gotha lost 56-65 in Goettingen to the much higher-ranked (#4) BG Goettingen. It was Oettinger Rockets Gotha's third consecutive loss in a row. Person has averaged so far 5.1ppg, 1.3rpg and 1.5apg in the eight games. He is also Swedish national team player.

Sebastian Norman
Sebastian Norman
   #8. Forward Sebastian Norman (206-92, is currently at the American university) couldn't help the Lamar (1-15) in their game against the Texas State University at San Marcos (4-12) in the NCAA. He cannot count Saturday's game as one of the best ones. Norman scored only 1 points in 3 minutes on the court. The Lamar lost 61-74 on their home court in Beaumont, TX to the Texas State University at San Marcos. It was Lamar's fifth consecutive loss in a row. There are only two games left until the end of the NCAA Regular Season. So now every game is very crucial. Norman has individually a very good year with high stats. He averages: 21.3ppg, 5.1rpg and 1.1apg in the 19 games. Norman plays currently for the Swedish U20 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 Euroleague), who plays in Spain could not help Caja Laboral (4-5) in their last game. Despite his very good performance the sixth-placed Caja Laboral lost 62-66 at home to the higher-ranked (#5) Maccabi T-A in the group F of Euroleague. Lampe had a double-double by scoring 19 points and getting 12 rebounds in 31 minutes. It was Caja Laboral's fifth consecutive loss in a row. Lampe is currently seventh on the league's list of best rebounders with 6.2rpg. He also averaged so far 13.2ppg in the 19 games he played so far. Lampe has a dual citizenship: Polish and Swedish.

   #2. Hussein Tawbeh (198-F-82, currently plays in Lebanon) contributed to an easy victory against the closely-ranked Bejjeh (5-12) 87-70 in the Lebanese Division A on Wednesday night. He scored 8 points and grabbed 8 rebounds. Hoops Club (5-12) is placed seventh in the Division A. The Regular Season already ended. It's Tawbeh's first season with the team. Tawbeh has averaged so far 4.4ppg and 6.8rpg. He is another player who holds two passports: Swedish and Lebanese.

   #3. Elias Westerlund (197-F-88, currently plays in Norway), who plays in the Norwegian BLNO was not able to help Asker Aliens (7-16) in their last game on Saturday. Despite Westerlund's good performance Asker Aliens was crushed 99-77 on the road by the higher-ranked Froya Basket (#4). He scored 10 points and grabbed 8 rebounds. Westerlund's team will play only one more game in the Regular Season. And that game will be critical. Westerlund is ranked third on the list of the top scorers in the league. He has individually a very good season with high stats. Westerlund averages: 21.3ppg, 5.1rpg and 1.1apg.
