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). He contributed to an easy victory against the Denver Nuggets (24-18) crushing them 117-97 in the NBA in Wednesday night's game. Sefolosha scored 9 points in 22 minutes on the court. The Oklahoma City Thunder has a very good 32-8 record this season. It was his team's sixth consecutive victory in a row. Sefolosha has relatively good stats this year: 7.3ppg, 4.0rpg, 1.7apg, 1.1spg, 2FGP: 53.3%, 3FGP: 41.9% and FT: 89.3% in the 39 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), who plays in the French ProA. He could not help one of league's weakest teams Chalon/Saor (10-6) to beat Gravelines-Dunkerque (11-5). N'Dumba-Capela scored 9 points and grabbed 10 rebounds in 21 minutes. But Chalon/Saor was crushed 102-69 on the road by the higher-ranked (#3) Gravelines-Dunkerque. This year N'Dumba-Capela averages: 2.9ppg, 3.3rpg, 2FGP: 40.9% and FT: 35.7% in the eight 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 led Trenkwalder RE to an easy victory against the tenth-ranked Juvecaserta (7-8) 91-72 in the Italian SerieA in Sunday night's game. He scored 12 points and grabbed 6 rebounds. Trenkwalder Reggio Emilia (8-7) is placed sixth in the SerieA. Brunner belongs to league's best rebounders and is ranked #4. He has very reliable stats this season: 11.7ppg, 7.9rpg, 1.7apg, 1.6spg, 2FGP: 53.7%, 3FGP: 25.0% 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 help the Florida Gulf Coast (5-3) in their last game on Saturday. Despite his good performance the Florida Gulf Coast was defeated 85-75 in Johnson City, TN by the East Tennessee State University. Varidel scored 14 points and grabbed 4 rebounds. This season Varidel has relatively solid stats: 11.7ppg, 7.9rpg, 1.7apg and 1.6spg. He 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) was not able to secure a victory for Boulazac Basket (4-12) in their game against Limoges CSP Elite (3-11) in the French ProA. Ramseier scored 8 points and grabbed 4 rebounds in 27 minutes. The bottom-ranked Boulazac Basket was badly defeated 82-65 in Limoges by the higher-ranked (#11) CSP Elite. It was Boulazac Basket's sixth consecutive loss in a row. This year Ramseier's overall stats are: 6.9ppg and 4.3rpg in the 11 games. 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 Baltic League), who plays in Lithuania could not help Siauliai (0-2) in their last game on Sunday. Despite Alijevas' very good performance the third-placed Siauliai was defeated 82-77 on the road by the second-ranked Valmiera in the group H of Baltic League. He was the top scorer with 16 points. Alijevas also added 5 passes. There are only four games left until the end of the Baltic League Top 16. So now every game will be critical. It's Alijevas' first season with the team. This year he has relatively solid stats: 11.5ppg, 1.5rpg and 3.5apg. Alijevas has a dual citizenship: Swiss and Lithuanian. Despite his Swiss passport, Alijevas previously played for the Lithuanian university national team and is probably not eligible to play for the Swiss team.

   #2. Michael Kessens (206-F-91, currently plays college basketball in the States), who plays in the NCAA was not able to help the Longwood (0-5) in their last game. Despite Kessens' very good performance the Longwood was edged 68-65 in Asheville, NC by the University of North Carolina - Asheville. He had a double-double by scoring 16 points and getting 11 rebounds in 35 minutes. So far Longwood lost all five games in the conference It's Kessens' first season with the team. This year Kessens has relatively solid stats: 11.7ppg, 7.9rpg, 1.7apg and 1.6spg in the 14 games he played so far.

   #3. Alex Vaenerberg (183-G-92, currently plays in Finland) was not able to secure a victory for Salon Vilpas (7-17) in their game against Lapuan Korikobrat (7-17) in the Finnish Korisliiga. He recorded 7 points, 5 assists and 3 steals. Salon Vilpas was edged 70-68 at home by the lower-ranked Lapuan_Korikobrat (#10). It was Salon Vilpas' fifth consecutive loss in a row. Vaenerberg's total stats this season are: 8.1ppg, 2.3rpg and 2.8apg. He is another player who holds two passports: Finnish and Swiss.
