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.


Thabo Sefolosha
Thabo Sefolosha
   #1. This week's number one is former international guard Thabo Sefolosha (199-84, agency: ACMT, currently plays in NBA), who plays in the NBA. He could not help the Oklahoma City Thunder (28-8) in their last game. Despite Sefolosha's good performance the Oklahoma City Thunder was edged 101-99 on the road by the Washington Wizards. He scored 14 points in 29 minutes on the court. Sefolosha has relatively good stats this year: 7.5ppg, 4.0rpg, 1.7apg, 1.1spg, 2FGP: 55.7%(54-97), 3FGP: 41.1% and FT: 89.3% in the 36 games he played so far. He played for the Swiss senior national team two years ago.

Clint N'Dumba-Capela
Clint N'Dumba-Capela
   #2. Second place goes to former U18 international forward Clint N'Dumba-Capela (204-94, currently plays in France). N'Dumba-Capela was not able to help Chalon/Saor (9-6) in their game against Gravelines-Dunkerque (10-5) in the French ProA. He scored 9 points and grabbed 10 rebounds in 21 minutes. But Chalon/Saor was crushed 102-69 on the opponent's court by the second-ranked Gravelines-Dunkerque. This year N'Dumba-Capela averages: 2.9ppg, 3.1rpg, 2FGP: 44.4% and FT: 33.3% in the seven games. He played for the Swiss U18 national team in 2011.

Greg Brunner
Greg Brunner
   #3. The Swiss player who performed third best last week abroad was an international power forward Greg Brunner (201-83, college: Iowa, currently plays in Italy). Brunner was the major contributor in a Trenkwalder RE's victory against the 12th-ranked Vanoli Cremona (4-10) 87-71 in the Italian SerieA in Sunday night's game. He scored 13 points and grabbed 4 rebounds. Trenkwalder Reggio Emilia (7-7) is placed eighth in the SerieA. It's Brunner's first season with the team. Brunner is currently fourth on the league's list of best rebounders. He has very reliable stats this season: 11.7ppg, 8.0rpg, 1.8apg, 1.5spg, 2FGP: 53.1%, 3FGP: 28.6% and FT: 66.7%. 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.

Christophe Varidel
Christophe Varidel
   #4. Guard Christophe Varidel (188-89, currently plays college basketball in the States), who plays in the NCAA was not able to secure a victory for the Florida Gulf Coast (4-2) in their last game on Saturday. Despite Varidel's good performance the Florida Gulf Coast was defeated 85-75 in Johnson City, TN by the East Tennessee State University. He scored 14 points and grabbed 4 rebounds. It was his first game for Florida Gulf Coast this season. Varidel used to play for the Swiss national team back in 2010.

David Ramseier
David Ramseier
   #5. International power forward David Ramseier (203-87, currently plays in France) couldn't help Boulazac Basket (4-11) in their game against Limoges CSP Elite (3-11) in the French ProA. Ramseier scored 8 points and grabbed 4 rebounds. The bottom-ranked Boulazac Basket was badly defeated 82-65 in Limoges by the higher-ranked CSP Elite (#11). It was Boulazac Basket's fifth consecutive loss in a row. Ramseier's overall stats this season are: 7.0ppg and 4.2rpg. He has a dual citizenship: Swiss and French. Ramseier plays currently for the Swiss national team.


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

   #1. Rolandas Alijevas (192-G-85, agency: Stanislav Ryzhov, currently plays in Lithuania) was the major contributor in Siauliai's victory against the closely-ranked Lietkabelis (5-6) 85-80 in the Lithuanian LKL last Saturday. Alijevas recorded 14 points and added 5 passes. It was his first game for Siauliai this season. His team is placed fourth in the LKL. It's Alijevas' first year with the team. He has a dual citizenship: Swiss and Lithuanian. Despite Alijevas' Swiss passport, he previously played for the Lithuanian university national team and is probably not eligible to play for the Swiss team.

   #2. Mike Burtscher (198-F-85, currently plays in ASEAN League) led his Filipino team Petron Blaze to a victory over the 12th-ranked Satria Muda (4-10) 64-53 in the ASEAN League last Friday. Burtscher was MVP of the game. He had a double-double by scoring 15 points and getting 19 rebounds in 31 minutes. It was his first game for Petron Blaze this season. His team are placed second in the ASEAN League. But this is still an early stage of the season and everything may happen. Burtscher is currently fourth on the league's list of top scorers and also on the list of best rebounders (first place). He is another player who holds two passports: Swiss and Filipino.

   #3. Michael Kessens (206-F-91, currently plays college basketball in the States), who plays in the NCAA could not help the Longwood (0-3) in their last game. Despite his good performance the Longwood lost 62-75 at home to the Charleston Southern University. Kessens scored 14 points and grabbed 9 rebounds in 30 minutes. It was his first game for Longwood this season. So far Longwood lost all three games in the conference

   #4. Alex Vaenerberg (183-G-92, currently plays in Finland) was not able to help Salon Vilpas (7-15) in their game against Kouvot (11-11) in the Finnish Korisliiga. He recorded 7 points, 5 rebounds and 3 assists in 34 minutes. Salon Vilpas lost 75-80 on the road to the higher-ranked (#6) Kouvot. It was Salon Vilpas' third consecutive loss in a row. This year Vaenerberg's overall stats are: 8.1ppg, 2.5rpg and 2.6apg in the 16 games he played so far. He has both Finnish and Swiss nationalities.
