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 Oklahoma City Thunder's victory against the Sacramento Kings (16-29) 105-95 in the NBA in Friday night's game. Sefolosha scored 10 points and grabbed 4 rebounds in 19 minutes on the court. The Oklahoma City Thunder has a very good 34-10 record this season. Sefolosha has relatively good stats this year: 7.3ppg, 4.0rpg, 1.7apg, 1.2spg, 2FGP: 54.8%, 3FGP: 40.8% and FT: 87.1% in the 43 games he played so far. He played for the Swiss senior national team two years ago.

Greg Brunner
Greg Brunner
   #2. Second place goes to an international power forward Greg Brunner (201-83, college: Iowa, currently plays in Italy), who plays in the Italian SerieA. Brunner could not help Trenkwalder RE (8-8) to beat Montepaschi Siena (12-4). He recorded 6 points and grabbed 9 rebounds in 29 minutes. Trenkwalder RE lost 49-64 on the road to the higher-ranked (#3) Montepaschi Siena. It's Brunner's first season with the team. Brunner belongs to league's best rebounders and is ranked #5 with 7.9rpg. This year his other stats are: 11.3ppg, 1.7apg, 1.6spg, 2FGP: 54.0%, 3FGP: 25.0% and FT: 66.7% in the 15 games. 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.

Clint N'Dumba-Capela
Clint N'Dumba-Capela
   #3. The Swiss player who performed third best last week abroad was former U18 international forward Clint N'Dumba-Capela (204-94, currently plays in France). N'Dumba-Capela contributed to an easy victory against the ninth-ranked JDA Dijon (8-9) 73-55 in the French ProA in Saturday night's game. He scored 6 points and blocked 2 blocks. ES Chalon-Sur-Saone (11-6) is placed third in the ProA. This season N'Dumba-Capela averages: 3.2ppg, 3.1rpg, 2FGP: 44.0% and FT: 43.8%. He played for the Swiss U18 national team two years ago.

Christophe Varidel
Christophe Varidel
   #4. Guard Christophe Varidel (188-89, currently plays college basketball in the States) led Florida Gulf Coast to an easy victory against the Northern Kentucky University (3-5) 73-54 in the NCAA on Saturday night. He recorded 12 points. The Florida Gulf Coast University has a solid 5-3 conference record this season. Varidel's overall stats this year are: 3.2ppg and 3.1rpg. 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 help Boulazac Basket (4-13) in their game against Le Mans (11-6) in the French ProA. Ramseier recorded 6 points and grabbed 5 rebounds in 20 minutes. The bottom-ranked Boulazac Basket lost 68-77 in Le Mans to the much higher-ranked (#4) Le Mans. It was Boulazac Basket's seventh 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 Lithuania) contributed to an easy victory against the league outsider Naglis Palangos (0-12) crushing them 106-81 in the Lithuanian LKL last Saturday. Alijevas scored 7 points and added 5 assists. BC Siauliai (7-4) is placed third in the LKL. This season Alijevas has relatively solid stats: 10.5ppg, 2.5rpg and 5.0apg. 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. Michael Kessens (206-F-91, currently plays college basketball in the States), who plays in the NCAA could not help the Longwood (0-7) in their last game. Despite Kessens' very good performance the Longwood was edged 68-65 on the road 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 seven games in the conference This year Kessens' overall stats are: 3.2ppg and 3.1rpg in the nine games he played so far.

   #3. Alex Vaenerberg (183-G-92, currently plays in Finland) was not able to help Salon Vilpas (8-18) in their game against Lapuan Korikobrat (8-18) 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' sixth consecutive loss in a row. Vaenerberg's total stats this season are: 7.7ppg, 2.2rpg and 3.1apg. He is another player who holds two passports: Finnish and Swiss.
