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


Greg Brunner
Greg Brunner
   #1. This week's number one is an international power forward Greg Brunner (201-83, college: Iowa, currently plays in Italy). He was the major contributor in a Trenkwalder RE's victory against the 13th-ranked Sutor Montegranaro (2-5) 94-80 in the Italian SerieA in Sunday night's game. Brunner recorded 20 points and grabbed 6 rebounds in 28 minutes on the court. Trenkwalder Reggio Emilia (4-3) is placed seventh in the SerieA. It was his team's fourth consecutive victory in a row. But this is still an early stage of the season and everything may happen. Brunner is ranked first on the list of the best rebounders in the league with 9.6rpg. He also averaged so far 13.1ppg, 1.7apg, 1.4spg, 2FGP: 54.4% and FT: 75.0% in the seven games he played so far. Brunner is a naturalized American. Despite he played previously for the USA university national team, Brunner is currently a member of the Swiss senior national team. Strangely he has never played in Switzerland.

Thabo Sefolosha
Thabo Sefolosha
   #2. Second place goes to an international guard Thabo Sefolosha (199-84, agency: ACMT, currently plays in NBA). Sefolosha led Oklahoma City Thunder to an easy victory against the New Orleans Hornets (3-5) 110-95 in the NBA last Friday. He scored 11 points. The Oklahoma City Thunder has a solid 7-3 record this season. But the season just started, so everything may happen. This year Sefolosha averages: 6.4ppg, 4.5rpg, 1.7apg, 2FGP: 44.0%, 3FGP: 57.1%(12-21). He played for the Swiss national team in 2011.

Christophe Varidel
Christophe Varidel
   #3. The Swiss player who performed third best last week abroad was former international guard Christophe Varidel (188-89, currently plays college basketball in the States). Varidel led Florida Gulf Coast to an easy victory against the Ave Maria University (3-5) crushing them 86-54 in the NCAA on Thursday night. He recorded 17 points and grabbed 7 rebounds in 27 minutes. The Florida Gulf Coast University has conference record this season. This year Varidel's overall stats are: 6.4ppg, 4.5rpg, 1.7apg, 2FGP: 44.0%, 3FGP: 57.1%(12-21) in the 10 games. He played for the Swiss national team two years ago.

Stefan Petkovic
Stefan Petkovic
   #4. Point guard Stefan Petkovic (185-92, currently plays in EuroChallenge) contributed to an easy victory against the closely-ranked Apollon (0-2) crushing them 93-62 in the EuroChallenge in Tuesday night's game. Petkovic scored 6 points, made 4 passes and 3 steals. Tsmoki-Minsk (1-1) is placed third in group G. There are only four games left until the end of the EuroChallenge Regular Season. So now every game will be critical. It's Petkovic's first season with the team. His total stats this year are: 4.0ppg, 3.0apg and 1.5spg. Petkovic has a dual citizenship: Serbian and Swiss. He is also Swiss national team player.

David Ramseier
David Ramseier
   #5. International power forward David Ramseier (203-87, currently plays in France) contributed to a Boulazac Basket's surprising victory against the third-ranked Chalon/Saor (4-2) 77-69 in the French ProA in Monday night's game. He scored 6 points in only 10 minutes. Boulazac Basket Dordogne (3-4) is placed ninth in the ProA. But there are still lots of games to play and it's a long way to go. This year Ramseier averages only 4.0ppg in the two games. He is another player who holds two passports: Swiss and French. Ramseier plays currently for the Swiss national team.

Michel-Ofik Nzege
Michel-Ofik Nzege
   #6. Forward Michel-Ofik Nzege (203-92, currently studies in the States), who plays in the CIAA could not help the Winston Salem State University to beat the University of North Carolina, Greensboro (0-0). He recorded 6 points. his team was badly defeated 81-65 on the road by the University of North Carolina, Greensboro. This season Nzege averages only 4.0ppg. He is U20 international player who is currently on the Swiss National Team roster.

Kevin Kimber
Kevin Kimber
   #7. Former U20 international center Kevin Kimber (203-90, is currently at the American university) was not able to help the Maryville University in their game against the Belmont University (0-0) in the GLVC. Kimber cannot count Tuesday's game as one of the best ones. He scored only 2 points in 2 minutes on the court. his team was crushed 88-49 in Nashville, TN by the Belmont University. This year Kimber averages just 4.0ppg in the two games. He used to play for the Swiss U20 national team two years ago.

   #1. Alex Vaenerberg (183-G-92, currently plays in Finland) led Salon Vilpas to an easy victory against Forssan Koripojat crushing them 99-74 in the Finnish Korisliiga last Saturday. Vaenerberg scored 14 points, had 4 rebounds and dished 4 assists in 27 minutes. Salon Vilpas Vikings (4-7) is placed eighth in the Korisliiga. But the season is still in it's first stage and everything can happen. This year Vaenerberg's total stats are: 8.4ppg, 2.5rpg and 2.2apg in the 11 games he played so far. He has a dual citizenship: Finnish and Swiss.

   #2. Michael Kessens (206-F, currently plays college basketball in the States), who plays in the NCAA could not help the Longwood in their last game on Thursday. Despite Kessens' very good performance the Longwood was defeated 78-66 at home by the Norfolk State University. He recorded a double-double by scoring 17 points and getting 15 rebounds. Kessens also added 4 blocks. Kessens' total stats this season are: 8.4ppg, 2.5rpg and 2.2apg.
