We bring you last week's top performances from Swiss players who are playing abroad and who all have had prior experience of national team duties at youth or senior level.


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 led Trenkwalder RE to a victory against the closely-ranked SAIE3 BO (4-4) 77-68 in the Italian SerieA in Sunday night's game. Brunner scored 14 points, grabbed 5 boards, dished 3 assists and stole 3 balls in 27 minutes on the court. Trenkwalder Reggio Emilia (5-3) is placed sixth in the SerieA. It was his team's fifth consecutive victory in a row. But this is still an early stage of the season and everything may happen. It's Brunner's first year with the team. Brunner is currently first on the list of best rebounders with 9.0rpg. He also averaged so far 13.3ppg, 1.9apg, 1.6spg, 2FGP: 54.5% and FT: 66.7% in the eight 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), who plays in the NBA. Sefolosha could not help the Oklahoma City Thunder (10-4) in their last game on Friday. Despite his good performance the Oklahoma City Thunder was defeated 108-100 on the road by the Boston Celtics. Sefolosha scored 10 points and added 4 passes. But the season just started, so everything may happen. This year Sefolosha averages: 6.5ppg, 4.3rpg, 1.9apg, 3FGP: 45.9%(17-37) and FT: 88.9%. He played for the Swiss national team in 2011.

David Ramseier
David Ramseier
   #3. The Swiss player who performed third best last week abroad was an international power forward David Ramseier (203-87, currently plays in France). Ramseier was not able to help Boulazac Basket (3-5) in their game against Cholet (5-3) in the French ProA, despite his very good performance on Saturday night. He was the second best scorer with 15 points. Ramseier also added 9 rebounds in 37 minutes. But Boulazac Basket was edged 68-67 on the opponent's court by the much higher-ranked (#5) Cholet. But the season is still in it's first stage and everything can happen. It's Ramseier's first year with the team. This season his overall stats are: 7.7ppg, 3.3rpg, 2FGP: 57.9%(11-19) and FT: 14.3% in the three games. Ramseier has a dual citizenship: Swiss and French. Ex-Chorale de Roanne Basket (ProA) U20 team -Geneva Devils player is also a member of the Swiss senior national team.

Christophe Varidel
Christophe Varidel
   #4. Guard Christophe Varidel (188-89, currently plays college basketball in the States) contributed to a Florida Gulf Coast's surprising victory against the Alcorn State University 50-48 in the NCAA on Wednesday night. He recorded 10 points. The Florida Gulf Coast University has conference record this season. Varidel's total stats this year are: 8.4ppg, 2.3rpg and 2.3apg. He used to play for the Swiss national team back in 2010.


The list of other players, who all have Swiss passport but never been selected to any of Swiss national teams:

   #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 in Saturday night's game. He scored 14 points, had 4 rebounds and dished 4 assists. Salon Vilpas Vikings (5-7) is placed eighth in the Korisliiga. It was his team's third consecutive victory in a row. But there are still lots of games to play and it's a long way to go. Vaenerberg's total stats this season are: 8.4ppg, 2.3rpg and 2.3apg. 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. Despite Kessens' very good performance the Longwood lost 78-84 at home to the Cornell University. He had a double-double by scoring 20 points and getting 14 rebounds in 33 minutes. It's Kessens' first season with the team. This year Kessens' total stats are: 8.4ppg, 2.3rpg and 2.3apg in the 12 games he played so far.
